Product Description

We've all heard of "IQ" ... but what's "EQ?" It's "Emotional Quotient" (aka Emotional Intelligence), and experts say that EQ is a greater predictor of success at work than IQ. Companies are increasingly looking for ways to motivate and develop their employees' emotional intelligence. This book presents trainers and coaches with 50 innovative exercises to be used for either individuals or groups. The activities found in the book are grouped according to the various core competencies associated with Emotional Intelligence: * Self-Awareness and Control: an awareness of one's values, emotions, skills, and drives, and the ability to control one's emotional responses * Empathy: an understanding of how others perceive situations * Social Expertness: the ability to build relationships based on an assumption of human equality * Mastery of Vision: the development and communication of a personal philosophy The book also includes suggested training combinations and coaching tips.

By A Customer
I was disappointed with this book. Most of the activities were introspective questions (pencil and paper tests).

I was expecting activities that participants can use to improve their EQ. It was not like that at all. I wouldn't recommend this book to trainers who are looking for activities to make their EQ based workshops more interactive.

Perhaps that is the reason why no sample of the "activities" were included in the preview of the book.

3Exclusively for leaders
By M. Murphy
The book contains some good activities, but the fact that they are ONLY for use with those in leadership positions was not reflected in the title. If you're looking for EQ activities for leadership development, this would be a useful book. Otherwise, look elsewhere.

5Great Resource
By Fred Encaper
I liked the Emotional Intelligence Activity book because it was so different than most of the exercise books on my shelf. I am an Executive Coach and I am often looking for material that challenges my clients. The activities in the book are characterized by difficulty which helped me to make decisions about which exercises to use with which clients. I also found the notes to the trainer and coach very useful. It deepened my understanding of what Ms. Lynn was trying to accomplish with the exercise.
