The BookViral Review:
If you thought success was simply down to hard work and fortuitous opportunities. Emotional Intelligence At Work – A Personal Operating System For Career Success by Richard M. Contino and Penelope J. Holt provides a genuine opportunity to readjust your thinking.
Clearly differentiating itself from a deluge of lacklustre offerings in the personal Development and Self Help genres, Contino and Holt leave us with no doubt that Emotional Intelligence plays a huge role in helping us understand and manage emotions.
The applications of Emotional Intelligence range from organizational situations to home life, parenting, romantic relationships, and more but in writing from an organizational perspective Contino and Holt explore how developing Emotional Intelligence can help individuals better deal with career pitfalls like confrontation, impulse control, negativity and poor self-motivation, among others, to build a framework for career advancement.
“When our personal psychology or lack of BEQ distorts or blocks us from witnessing what’s actually happening in business, we become factually blind,” state Contino and Holt and they certainly succeed in focusing the reader’s attention with their thoughts delivered in easily digestible morsels.
Sharing insightful case studies they understand that change comes from within and have judiciously chosen and developed tools that provide the reader with genuine insight without wading through an extraneous level of detail.
Each chapter pulls its weight. But Contino and Holt’s chapters on Uncovering Emotional Baggage, Honing Business EQ by Spotting Tell-Tale Behaviors, Business Battlefield Survival and Building a Personal Emotional Brand For Success are potentially transformational for the reader who actively engages with their perspective.
It’s clear from the start that Contino and Holt understand the psychology of achievement and in Emotional Intelligence At Work – A Personal Operating System For Career Success they have delivered an invaluable read for handbook for emotional transformation and career success.
