Did not Age Well

You can find 100% of this information - and more - anywhere online. I've watched youtube vids more informational. I'm sure at one point this was considered groundbreaking and new information, but it is so basic that one wonders if it still has a place.

The Right Information, in the Right Dose, at the Right Time

By now there has been enough written about the theory, history,research and background of EI that any attempt to recreate this in a book would be redundant. Anyone that is interested in learning more about these areas will find no shortage of reading material out there. What is needed at this point is more information and tools to help organizations and individuals apply and use EI in all situations in every day life. Emotional Intelligence 2.0 gets right to the meat of the matter by recognizing the gap between our understanding of EI as a concept and our ability to apply it. It is this gap, or missing piece, that the authors address in the book. In this they do an admirable job, breaking down the EI concepts into four areas. They then go on to explain the areas, give examples of what various levels of functioning in these areas look like and provide strategies for improving on these areas. At the end of the book there is a code to take a short EI test that gives valuable feedback. While the examples in the book are business ones, the same principles would apply just as well to the other areas of our life. What perhaps isn't stated clearly is that EI is not a form of therapy. It is not prescriptive and provides tools to help individuals increase their effectiveness with the assumption that they are functioning at a certain level. There is the assumption that the person has the ability to accurately perceive their situation and have a good degree of control over their emotions. For individuals who are have a great deal of difficulty controlling emotions, such as anger, professional therapy might be needed before they are able to benefit from powerful, yet simple, EI tools.
