Has anyone read The Emotionally Intelligent Manager or books in this space (EI)? Are they useful management tools.
Someone recommended it to me, but I have heard mixed reviews, and the Amazon reviews reflect this.
If there are a few useful take-aways from these books what are they?
I am deciding whether to add it to my reading list & am interested in the M-T community's opinion on their value.
Opinion: The Emotionally Intelligent Manager-Caruso/Salovey
I have not read these, though they interest me. I have read Emotional Intelligence and Working with Emotional Intelligence, and liked them both. I can't say (yet) about whether these do well in translating them into action.
I've often thought that my second or third book will be about management communications, which would of course include this topic.
