Emotional Intelligence 2.0

Everyone should read this Book – from housewife to housebands and husbands to students to teachers to PMET to Politicians. Today, emotional intelligence needs little introduction. This “other kind of smart” is the #1 predictor of success both personally and professionally. But knowing what it is and knowing how to use it to improve your life are two very different things.
 
In today's fast-paced world of competitive workplaces and turbulent economic conditions, each of us is searching for effective tools that can help us to manage, adapt, and strike out ahead of the pack. Emotional intelligence needs little introduction. This "other kind of smart" is the #1 predictor of success personally and professionally. But knowing what EQ is and knowing how to use it to improve your life are two very different things.

If you'd like to learn how to increase your EQ, consider taking the online Emotional Intelligence Appraisal test that's included with the Emotional Intelligence 2.0 book. Your test results will pinpoint which of the book's 66 emotional intelligence strategies will increase your EQ the most.

For the first time, Drs. Travis Bradberry and Jean Greaves reveal TalentSmart's proven strategies for increasing emotional intelligence. The authors unveil a step-by-step program for increasing your emotional intelligence via 66 proven strategies that target self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and relationship management.

The Study
The authors’ groundbreaking research tested more than 500,000 people to discover how they use EQ and how it influences their lives. The results shed light on some of the toughest questions facing us today:

[1] How can I manage emotions to my benefit? What is the key to understanding people?

[2] Why is there so little emotional intelligence in the workplace?

[3] What is my emotional intelligence and how can I improve it?
The Findings
A decade of research reveals the distinguishing characteristics of those who use EQ to their benefit and delivers 66 strategies you can use to increase your EQ today. The book’s smooth narrative style turns rigorous research into memorable stories. Each copy includes the opportunity to test your EQ online, via a new, enhanced edition of the authors’ best-selling Emotional Intelligence Appraisal, because knowing your EQ is an essential first step in using it to your benefit.

The Findings introduced for the First Time:

[1] An emotional epidemic: 70% of us do not handle conflict or stress effectively, and just 36% understand emotions as they happen. The greatest challenges are at work, where just 15% feel respected and valued by their employers.

[2] Your brain is plastic: Unlike IQ, EQ is not fixed at birth. New skills learned actually create permanent physical changes in the brain.

[3] Keep your job: People with high EQs are 10 times more productive than those with low EQs. It’s no wonder that 90% of top performers are high in EQ, and a one point increase in your EQ adds  to your annual salary.

Drs. Travis Bradberry and Jean Greaves have created a revolutionary program to help readers identify their EQ skill level, build this skill into a strength, and enjoy consistent performance in the pursuit of important life objectives. At the heart of the book is the new and enhanced online Emotional Intelligence Appraisal, the product of a decade-long effort to accurately measure EQ skills.

At 256 pages, Emotional Intelligence 2.0 is everything you need to know, without the filler. “Some of the strongest findings from our research,” comments Dr. Travis Bradberry, “fly in the face of what people have been told their entire lives—things they’ve always thought would make them successful and give them what they want. This upsets some people.”
That may be, but who can afford to ignore these findings?

"At last a book that gives 'how to's' rather than just 'what to's.' We need no more convincing that emotional intelligence is at the core of life success. What we need are practical ways of improving it. Bradberry and Greaves' brilliant new book is a godsend. It will change your life."
-                     Joseph Grenny, Crucial Conversations

"I distributed the book to my entire team. We found it very helpful in our dealings with each other and our internal customers. With all the new buzzwords over the past few years, the heart and soul of a company's culture is how the organization supports and promotes emotional intelligence. Those with foresight see that retention will soon become the key, and emotional intelligence will separate the good companies from the great ones. This book is a wonderful tool for a grassroots approach. If your desire is to be a truly resonant leader that people will trust and follow, this is an opportunity that cannot only change your professional career, but also your personal relationships."
-                     Regina Sacha, Vice President of Human Resources, Fedex Custom Critical

"In the fast lane of business life today, people spend more time on computer keyboards, blackberries and conference calls than they do in face-to-face communication. We're expected to piece together broken conversations, cryptic voicemails, and abbreviated text messages to figure out how to proceed. In this increasingly complex web, emotional intelligence is more important than ever before. This book is filled with invaluable insights and information that no one can afford to ignore."
-                     Rajeev Peshawaria, Executive Director , Goldman Sachs International
