Learning is an activity with an emotional dimension and before students can turn their attention to cognitive learning or the prescribed curriculum, they must feel physically safe and emotionally secure. How a student 'feels' about a learning situation determines the amount of time and effort they devote to it. Developing Emotional Intelligence could provide the 'missing link' to achievement in our schools. This book will enable readers to begin to understand and develop their own Emotional Intelligence and that of the students in their care. They will be able to appreciate the role EI plays in promoting academic progress and creating positive, lasting changes that will help learners in both school and non-school settings. IQ, which is a measure of our cognitive intelligence, represents the raw material for our successes, whereas EQ, which signifies Emotional Intelligence, is the set of socio-emotional skills that enables the intellect to turn into action and accomplishment. Without EQ, IQ remains only a potential; this book provides the tools to nurture that potential into reality, using the seven successful strategies that the author outlines in her ELEVATE model.

Everyone knows that high IQ is no guarantee of success, happiness, or virtue, but until Emotional Intelligence, we could only guess why. Daniel Goleman's brilliant report from the frontiers of psychology and neuroscience offers startling new insight into our “two minds”—the rational and the emotional—and how they together shape our destiny. Through vivid examples, Goleman delineates the five crucial skills of emotional intelligence, and shows how they determine our success in relationships, work, and even our physical well-being. What emerges is an entirely new way to talk about being smart. The best news is that “emotional literacy” is not fixed early in life. Every parent, every teacher, every business leader, and everyone interested in a more civil society, has a stake in this compelling vision of human possibility. Praise for Emotional Intelligence “A thoughtfully written, persuasive account explaining emotional intelligence and why it can be crucial to your career.”—USA Today “Good news to the employee looking for advancement [and] a wake-up call to organizations and corporations.”—The Christian Science Monitor “Anyone interested in leadership . . . should get a copy of this book. In fact, I recommend it to all readers anywhere who want to see their organizations in the phone book in the year 2001.”—Warren Bennis, The New York Times Book Review
