Dave Riley, August 13, 2009 (view all comments by Dave Riley)
I was given this book as prework for a leadership retreat at my company. They make us read a lot of books this way, and I usually skim them or don't read them at all because I can't get into them. Emotional Intelligence 2.0 broke the mold.

I read it cover to cover twice before the retreat, and I was soaking up good info like a sponge both times. The book makes a strong case for why emotional intelligence is important on the job, and uses data from inside real organizations to show how EQ impacts job performance and company performance.

The beauty of the strategies (there are a TON of them) in the book is they are the kind of things you can weave into your daily routine without thinking too hard about it. I review the strategies section each morning before I head to work, and find myself applying what I read all day long.

The book also includes access to an online test which is incredible. I admit that some of the stuff my results revealed weren't super easy to fess up to, but I think that's the point. The results made me feel like I was watching myself on a movie screen or something where I could see so clearly how I come across to other people. Anyway, it's a nice addition to the book, and I wish more books were like it.
