Through powerful storytelling, self-assessments, and exercises, readers discover and activate their emotional intelligence leadership “superpowers”
DES MOINES, IA, UNITED STATES, June 1, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — With the demand for emotional intelligence skills set to increase six-fold in 3-5 years according to recent research by Capgemini, the need for emotionally intelligent leaders on the rise. The new book How to Be an Emotionally Intelligent Leader (While Crushing Your Goals) was created to “help you unlock the best kept secret to a long and prosperous career—your own emotional intelligence—and how you can use it to lead yourself and those around you in a way that makes you relevant, respected, and indispensable.”
In Section I of the book, readers get to take one of the self-assessments author, Cheryl O’Donoghue, uses in her corporate training programs to help uncover what makes you an emotionally intelligent leader—your emotional intelligence attributes or superpowers. She also guides you through a series of exercises to raise further your emotional intelligence leadership abilities.
Section II features twenty individual Profiles of Emotionally Intelligent Leaders. “These are fascinating people who represent a diverse group of leaders of all ages and backgrounds," says O'Donoghue. "Many of us don’t know what emotional intelligence leadership strengths or superpowers we possess. When we read stories about others, we receive clues about our own emotional intelligence leadership abilities, as well as uncover new ways we can put those superpowers into action.”
