Emotional intelligence (EI) has been identified as a better predictor of success than IQ, all things considered. And, while IQ peaks in the mid 20s and remains relatively constant throughout life, EI can be enhanced through training and coaching, study and practice. Emotional intelligence has also been related to the 10 essential skills for success by the Government of Canada and is now being used as criteria in many hiring processes.
Packed with research-based insights and exercises, Emotional Intelligence: Your Foundation for Success takes readers through a wide range of activities pertaining to five realms of emotional intelligence: self-perception, self-expression, interpersonal, decision making, and stress management. For each realm, readers are encouraged to evaluate their strengths and areas needing improvement while setting realistic goals.
Ideal for professional development, regardless of whether you are a seasoned leader or a young person entering the job market, Emotional Intelligence: Your Foundation for Success is a user-friendly, accessible resource that helps readers identify the most important contributors and detractors related to their emotional health and overall effectiveness.
EI Advantage was founded by Janice Gair and Hayley Hesseln, PhD in 2015. They work with individuals and companies in the public and private sectors to help people be their best. Their combined experience in business, research, teaching, and higher education has given them insight into the need for advanced training and executive coaching around essential emotional skills required for the Fourth Industrial revolution as recognized by the World Economic Forum. They have published articles in the fields of business, coaching, training, and teaching, and Hesseln was honoured to receive the Master Teacher Award at the University of Saskatchewan in 2017 and the Medal of Bravery from the Governor General of Canada. Gair lives in Winnipeg, MB with her husband, two children and dog, while Hesseln lives in Saskatoon, SK with her three dogs.
