Must read tool for self-development

Emotional intelligence

A practical guide to improving your EQ

With 90% of top performers high in EQ this book is a must for any person looking to grow and develop the skills that account for more than 58% of performance in any role.

With practical examples and clear research, Bradberry and Greaves examine the four pillars of EQ:
1. Self awareness
2. Self management
3. Social awareness
4. Relationship management

For each pillar, Bradberry and Greaves explain the basic concepts and explore simple and effective strategies for improvement.

One of the highlights is that this book includes a code where you can complete your own Emotional intelligence appraisal. The test identifies which area you most need to work on, and also allows monitoring and reassessment to determine whether the strategies you’ve employed are working.

This is a business tool I’m sure I will refer back to many times as I undertake my own journey of self development.
