Working with Emotional Intelligence by Daniel Goleman

If you have ever had to work with a group of people, you probably understand the value of emotional intelligence. You could have the smartest person in the entire world working with you but if they do not have ability to understand their surroundings and communicate appropriately, then you might as well work by yourself.

Goleman’s work Emotional Intelligence is a must read. His follow up work Working with Emotional Intelligence is a big skip. You do not get any new information here. There are plenty of ancedotes and references to studies, but they all just simply point to the fact that emotional intelligence is important – something you probably knew before reading this book.

There probably was a time when this book was groundbreaking but today it feels old and stale.
