About EQ EDGE

The revised EQ Edge examines the dynamics of emotional quotient (EQ), showing how it can bolster success in your work life and set you on the path to developing emotional quotient as your best friend. Unlike intelligence quotient, which is relatively fixed after seventeen years of age, emotional quotient can be enhanced throughout your life. When you enhance your emotional quotient, you increase your chance of success in the countless roles you play each day. When you develop your emotional quotient, you learn to understand yourself and others better, become more adaptable, learn to cope with stress, and you are able to maintain an appropriately optimistic perspective.

What is “emotional intelligence”?

Psychologists have been trying for years to define what intelligence is. Cognitive intelligence, which has traditionally been measured with IQ, attempts to indicate one’s capacity to understand, learn, recall, and solve problems. 

Our understanding of intelligence evolved during the latter part of the 20th century to take into consideration certain aspects of intelligence that go beyond the cognitive components.   The development of the BarOn model of emotional intelligence evolved from Dr. Reuven Bar-On’s early clinical experiences. Based on these experiences, he asked the question: Why are some individuals more able to succeed in life than others? After a thorough review of the factors thought to determine success in general, Dr. Bar-On found that predicting success is not always based on cognitive intelligence. Many cognitively intelligent people flounder in life, while many less cognitively intelligent individuals succeed and prosper.

 

Emotional intelligence addresses the emotional, personal, social, and survival dimensions of intelligence, which are often more important to successful coping with environmental demands and pressures than the more traditional cognitive aspects of intelligence.   In everyday language, emotional intelligence is referred to as “street smarts” or “common sense” (Stein & Book, 2003). Emotional intelligence competencies can be improved through training, and thus, provide an excellent means of identifying potential areas for improvement, as well as measuring the effectiveness of individual and organizational development programs. Studies indicate that emotional intelligence accounts for 15-45% of work success, whereas cognitive intelligence has shown low and insignificant correlations with performance in the workplace (for example, Jae, J. H., 1997). This means that the most intelligent or highly qualified person for a position may not have the emotional make up to handle the stresses of the job environment.

Emotional Intelligence and Your Academic and Personal Success

This book is the competitive edge.” —Stedman Graham, best-selling author, speaker, entrepreneur

“We have been long aware that academic ability does not necessarily predict college success. This book provides a comprehensive look at emotional intelligence and the role it plays in student persistence. It takes these noncognitive aspects that we know really matter and puts them into a practical, user-friendly guide. This book is long overdue in higher education.” —Catherine Andersen, master trainer in emotional intelligence; professor and special assistant to the provost for student success, Gallaudet University

“As important as book learning is, we know that success in life is also dependent upon emotional intelligence. The authors of The Student EQ Edge define emotional intelligence and provide a road map for mastering emotional intelligence skills. I would highly recommend The Student EQ Edge to any high school or college student interested in knowing what it takes to be truly successful both inside and outside the classroom.” —Brad Beacham, executive director, Sigma Nu Fraternity, Inc.

The EQ Leader

Instilling Passion, Creating Shared Goals, and Building Meaningful Organizations
through Emotional Intelligence

A roadmap to success for tomorrow’s leaders

The EQ Leader provides an evidence-based model for exceptional leadership, and a four-pillar roadmap for real-world practice. Data collected from thousands of the world’s best leaders—and their subordinates—reveals the keys to success: authenticity, coaching, insight, and innovation. By incorporating these methods into their everyday workflow, these leaders have propelled their teams to heights great enough to highlight the divide between successful and not-so-successful leadership. This book shows you how to put these key factors to work in your own practice, with clear examples and concrete steps for improving skills and competencies.

New data from the author’s own research into executive functioning describes the neurological aspects of leadership, and a deep look at the leaders of tomorrow delves into the fundamental differences that set them apart—and fuel their achievement.

Leadership is changing, both in look and practice; strictly authoritative approaches are quickly losing ground as today’s workers discover the power of collaboration and the importance of interpersonal awareness. This book provides step-by-step guidance for leading from within this space, with evidence-based approaches for success.

Lead authentically to inspire and motivate others
Support employee’s needs and nurture development
Communicate with purpose, meaning, and vision
Foster ingenuity, imagination, and autonomous thinking
An organization’s success rests on the backs of its leadership. At all levels, true leadership is about much more than management and task distribution—it’s about commitment, collaboration, nurturing talent, developing skills, fostering relationships, and so much more. The EQ Leader integrates the essential factors of successful leadership into a concrete blueprint for the future’s leaders.
