Authors Contend 'EQ' is as Vital as IQ

In Executive EQ--Emotional Intelligence in Leadership & Organizations, authors Robert K. Cooper and Ayman Sawaf argue that it is the emotional quotient (EQ), not just the intelligence quotient (IQ), that underpins many of the best decisions that successful executives make. Cooper says that it is feedback from the heart, not the head, that ignites creative genius and intuition, clarifies important decisions, and provides an inner compass for life and career. Published by New York-based Grosset/Putnam, a member of Penguin Putnam Inc., the book includes an EQ map, a model one can use to measure emotional intelligence. The book also includes practical techniques that can be used to strengthen emotional intelligence.
