This book by author Daniel Goleman is a classic and a must-read for every employee. The book specifically looks into the emotional competencies required at workplace. As a manager I’ve often seem non technical employees excels in their work where as technical and many of the intelligent employees fail. All of these skills are definitely attributed to emotional intelligence.
I follow the blog ‘http://www.manager-tools.com/’. This blog/podcast refers to the concepts referred to in this book and is an excellent resource for budding managers.
One of the noteworthy subject in this book is about reference to Amyglada. A little gland in your brain controlling emotions such as rage, fear, anxiety. This is a really interesting read, where the author in details talks about the way this organ controls the emotions.
