Praise for A Coach′s Guide to Emotional Intelligence
"This book is a rich harvesting of the wisdom teachers, each of whom has discovered a core truth: we can′t be fully human, offer our contributions, or live meaningful lives if we disregard or neglect our emotions. As the craziness of this time engulfs us, this truth provides a lifeline to a saner, happier life for us all."
MARGARET J. WHEATLEY, author, Finding Our Way: Leadership for an Uncertain Time
"A Coach′s Guide to Emotional Intelligence sets the stage for new and experienced executive coaches to apply emotional intelligence in their work. This book nicely lays out the case for coaching, why emotional intelligence is essential for success, a structure for the coaching experience, some ′how to′s,′ and useful case examples. Any level of coach should benefit from this book."
STEVEN J. STEIN, Ph.D. co–author of The EQ Edge and author, Make Your Workplace Great
"This book provides the context necessary to understand the profound impact of well–rounded emotional intelligence in moving through today′s complex organizational world. I am encouraged by the possibilities provided by the learning skills outlined in the book and by the beautiful vision that the leaders of tomorrow could assimilate these earlier in their lives and careers than prior generations."
SUSANA ISAACSON, retired director of leadership development and organizational learning, Central Intelligence Agency
"We lost money in 2006 but we had one of the best years in the history of the company in 2007. I give much credit to Julio Olalla who used the principles from this book in his work with our company."
DAVID NEENAN, chairman, The Neenan Company
"Coaches, people who are being coached, and people who would like to receive the benefits of coaching, can all benefit greatly from this guide.
