Emotional and Social Intelligence and Functioning

Speed of Trust “Covey’s book underscores the single most important factor — the substrate — that will determine the success (or failure) of any organization in the 21st century: TRUST. This is a powerful read: brave, imaginative, amazingly prescient, and backed up by empirical and analytical heft. A must-read for anyone in a position of responsibility, from a support group to a global corporation.” — Warren Bennis, Distinguished Professor of Business Administration, USC, and author of On Becoming a Leader.

Reverence Reverence is an ancient virtue dating back thousands of years. It survives among us in half-forgotten patterns of behavior and in the vestiges of old ceremonies. Yet, Paul Woodruff says, we have lost sight of reverence. This short, elegiac volume makes an impassioned case for the fundamental importance of the forgotten virtue of reverence, and how awe for things greater than oneself can–indeed must–be a touchstone for other virtues like respect, humility, and charity. Learn more about this book.EQThe EQ Edge is a must-read for anyone constructing an intervention or training program to enhance personal understanding and skills associated with emotional intelligence. Each chapter tunnels its way into the most critical aspects of what emotional intelligence actually means and how to achieve personal success, both internally and in our relationships with those around us. It adroitly synthesizes the research and the theory in such a way as to make the application of emotional intelligence available to clinicians and trainers alike. Developing an applied base program in emotional intelligence without utilizing this book is comparable to baking the cake and leaving off the icing.”—Patrick Kilcarr, Ph.D., Director, Center for Personal Development, School of Nursing & Health Studies, Georgetown University, Washington, DC. Learn more about this book.EQinAction Designed for use in a leadership and management development program, this volume presents 46 exercises for building emotional intelligence. Each exercise includes a purpose statement, summary, estimated time, intended audience, step-by-step instructions, and reproducible handouts. A cross-reference matrix links the exercises to the four leading emotional intelligence models: EQ-i or EQ-360, ECI 360, the MSCEIT, and EQ Map. Learn more about this book.
Primal Drawing from decades of research within world-class organizations, the authors show that great leaders-whether CEOs or managers, coaches or politicians-excel not just through skill and smarts, but by connecting with others using Emotional Intelligence competencies like empathy and self-awareness. The best leaders, they show, have “resonance”-a powerful ability to drive emotions in a positive direction to get results-and can fluidly interchange among a variety of leadership styles as the situation demands. Groundbreaking and timely, this book reveals the new requirements of successful leadership. Learn more about this book.
Social Far more than we are consciously aware, our daily encounters with parents, spouses, bosses, and even strangers shape our brains and affect cells throughout our bodies—down to the level of our genes—for good or ill. In Social Intelligence, Daniel Goleman explores an emerging new science with startling implications for our interpersonal world. Its most fundamental discovery: we are designed for sociability, constantly engaged in a “neural ballet” that connects us brain to brain with those around us. Learn more about this book.
 Moral Through a combination of research, and original thought leadership, the authors demonstrate how the best performing companies have leaders who actively apply moral values to achieve enduring personal and organizational success. These individuals exhibit moral intelligence: a strong moral compass and the ability to follow it. Lennick and Kiel reveal how dozens of companies benefit from the moral intelligence of their leaders, help build specific moral competencies leaders need: integrity, responsibility, compassion, forgiveness, and more. This book also includes the new Moral and Emotional Competency Inventory (MECI): an indispensable metric to assess moral intelligence. Leaders with strong moral intelligence can build the trust and commitment that are the foundation of truly great businesses. Learn more about this book.

Team Throughout the turbulent 1850s, each had energetically sought the presidency as the conflict over slavery was leading inexorably to secession and civil war. That Lincoln succeeded, Goodwin demonstrates, was the result of a character that had been forged by experiences that raised him above his more privileged and accomplished rivals. He won because he possessed an extraordinary ability to put himself in the place of other men, to experience what they were feeling, to understand their motives and desires.It was this capacity that enabled Lincoln as president to bring his disgruntled opponents together, create the most unusual cabinet in history, and marshal their talents to the task of preserving the Union and winning the war.

Interface Dynamics™ – Multi-Perspective Understanding

Dialogue William Isaacs – founder of the Dialogue Project at MIT – shows how problems between managers and employees, and between companies or divisions within a larger corporation, stem from an inability to conduct a successful dialogue. He demonstrates that dialogue is more than just the exchange of words, but rather the embrace of different points of view – literally the art of thinking together. Through his work with Ford, Shell, Motorola, Hewlett-Packard, and other companies, Dr. Isaacs has expanded the ways that better-designed conversation can be (and has been) applied to bridge the communication gap in organizations and communities.
