About the Book and Topic:
This book provides a practical approach, combined with a new perspective on emotional intelligence. * This is a groundbreaking book that for the first time provides an integrated approach to personality, competencies, cognition, and emotion. What seperates it from all the competition is the level of detail included- comprehensiveness presented in a clear logical format together with the practical exercises to apply. * The foreword will be written by Dan Goleman, the father of the field and author of the bestseller Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ (1995).
About the Author
Tim Sparrow has had a varied career. He has three master’s degrees (social anthropology, social psychology and industrial relations) and has worked in central and local government, in industry and commerce, as a management consultant, and also as a counsellor, psychotherapist and clinical supervisor. He has devoted the last ten years to developing the theory of emotional intelligence and exploring actively how these insights can most profitably and effectively be applied by individuals and by organisations. Hence his founding of the Centre for Applied Emotional Intelligence, and the development of the unique action learning programme for its Certificate in Emotional Intelligence practitionership. Developing Applied EI satisfies his twin passions: finding out the truth, and changing the world for the better. Amanda Knight is Research and Development Director for the Centre for Applied Emotional Intelligence, a role tasked with keeping the Centre at the leading edge of emotional intelligence practice. She is also course director of the Centre’s unique, in-depth EI practitioner programme. As an EI facilitator and coach, she is passionate about human potential and authentic leadership. ‘Living the values’ and ‘being the change’ are easy to say, but not easy to do, and healthy, emotionally intelligent attitudes towards oneself as well as towards others are intrinsic to authenticity and stress-free living. Focused on the ‘how to’, Amanda has pioneered an approach to development training combining AppliedEI(TM) with experiential learning, and a guided AppliedEI(TM) development programme for individuals.
