Product Description

Performance is just one part of an employee's overall development as a professional and as a leader This crucial development depends on the employee's emotional intelligence and the ability of the manager to encourage and increase it. Coaching for Emotional Intelligence provides a carefully planned strategy to help managers address the issues that make coaching for EI more challenging than coaching for performance alone. Key features Coaching too often focuses entirely on job performance. While important, performance coaching does not do very much to develop exceptional talent or nurture overall growth. This book gives managers the tools to help employees make the leap from solid performer to superstar Demonstrates how managers can leverage and develop such factors as personality traits, communication styles, and personal behaviours Clear, accessible, and practical approach to an often elusive subject

5I need this book
By Gerard T. Brooker
This book is what I have been looking for. I am called on to supervise the work performance of colleagues who comprise teams that develop cultural exchange conferences. I am embarrassed to admit that sometimes I have overlooked non-productive performances because I did not have the necessary skills to discuss my findings with those in question. I am happy to say that I now have the skills I need, thanks to Bob Wall's "Coaching for Emotional Intelligence." The book lays out clearly the necessary steps to take as a supervisor in sharing difficult and perhaps threatening information about job performance with another so that both supervisor and supervisee remain emotionally intact and improved. I've always thought "win-win" was the best way. Now, with the help of this book, I know how to make that happen.

1Save your money.
By David R. Halperin
This book is a good marketing piece for the author. Nice to have a book to impress clients with. However as a reader you can save your pocket change and find much better material in other books or reprints, many of them free on line. Or just read the following three sentences which is about all I could find of interest in the book, and nothing here is new. 1.) Emotions play a large part in interpersonal interactions so improve your emotional intelligence. 2.) When providing feedback, set the framework for the conversation, provide an observation of behavior and suggest ways to do things differently. 3.) Finding people doing things right and acknowledging them for doing thing right is a valuable way to motivate people. There I just saved you 20 bucks.

5Wall, Goleman, Peters. Required reading.................
By W. Crane
Bob Wall has taken the best of his experience in Coaching and Emotional Intelligence and put it in to practical advice. Easy to read and a great follow up to his "Working Relationships". If you are are leader this is a book to help improve your own Emotional Intelligence and that of your people. Coaching is not difficult when Wall's principles are applied.
