Overview
-

Every day, in every organization, every one of us wrestles with the complexities and complications that permeate our lives. But, too often the problems in our lives prevail. The well being we covet often flees into the distance.

We might implement a variety of activities to improve our lives. For example, to overcome unpleasant emotions—like anxiety, despair, resentment, and frustration—we might strive to shift our attention from upsetting memories to inspiring possibilities. To address conflicts, we might decide to shun the people we do not trust. To achieve our goals, we might strive to outperform our colleagues.

And yet, as research shows, these activities actually damage our mood, relationships, or performance. Indeed, many of the practices that people assume improve well being actually impair well being.

Emotional Intelligence: Know Thyself presents a suite of exercises and interventions that you can apply to improve your well being. All these activities have been validated scientifically. And most are surprising rather than obvious.

Additionally, these recommendations are embedded within a fascinating tale of mystery and intrigue. Some readers may prefer to read both the key recommendations and the story in which they have been embedded. Others, in contrast, may prefer to read only the sections that appear in gray—the sections that outline the key recommendations.

We wish you the best on your journey to the source of emotional intelligence.
