The Emotionally Intelligent Manager by Salovey and Caruso

This is still the gold-standard book on the practical applications of emotional intelligence at work - and outside of work.

It is written by the pioneers of emotional intelligence and the people who did the original scientific research in the area and who continue to do so.

Rachel recommends the book to all her clients at the conclusion of their emotional intelligence coaching sessions. That is how important she thinks it is.

The Emotionally Intelligent Manager shows that the emotion centres of the brain are an integral part of what it means to think, reason, and to be intelligent. It clearly demonstrates that emotions are absolutely necessary for us to make good decisions, take action to solve problems, cope with change, and succeed.

The book describes the four key areas of emotional skills that we all need: identifying emotions, using emotions to facilitate thinking, understanding emotions, and managing emotions.

It also describes how we can measure, learn, and develop each skill and employ them in an integrated way to solve our most difficult work-related problems.

The MSCEIT (Mayer-Salovey-Caruso-Emotional-Intelligence-Test) is based on the work in this book. When you've done the test - it could be a great idea to read this book next, especially as the MSCEIT is now used in recruitment.

There is so much we are never taught about emotions at school but this book is an excellent way to fill in our gaps. And it is practical! And written by THE experts in the area. When you want to really understand emotional intelligence we recommend you go to the source. This is the source!
