What is emotional intelligence? What difference does it really make? And what is the best way to promote it in the workplace? InThe Emotionally Intelligent Workplace, two renowned experts on the subject and a stellar group of contributors offer their perspectives on how to measure emotional intelligence, use it as a basis for selection, and improve it at the individual, group, and organizational levels. Cary Cherniss and Daniel Goleman–author of the best–selling book Emotional Intelligence–show HR managers, executives, consultants, and psychologists how to move beyond working with the individual and enhance the performance of the entire organization.

"The Emotionally Intelligent Workplace is an engaging attempt to connect fundamental research on emotions and human performance to day–to–day workplace challenges. This is a volume that should be on the bookshelf of every HR professional."

But don′t just read it; share it with your most thoughtful and respected colleagues! Spread the ideas and evidence to help grow the emotional competencies in your organizational network."
Douglas T. Hall, professor of organizational behavior and director, Executive Development Roundtable, Boston University School of Management
