Exploring Practical Perspectives of Emotional Intelligence: Harnessing the Power Within

This book focuses on developing our emotional intelligence by exploring our thinking, emotions, what we say, and how we act, towards supporting personal growth and development, while refuelling our emotional “tank”. Challenging experiences can be transformational, and this book is written for those who want to grow through life’s successes and struggles but might not know where to start. Self-awareness, resilience, empathy, compassion fatigue, grief and loss, rejection, spiritual well-being, and managing our emotions are presented within these pages, and are important skills which we need to succeed and grow.

The book is full of original insights, heart-warming stories, ideas, and practical activities that will cheer readers on in their personal development adventure. It demystifies emotional intelligence by explaining it in everyday language, yet has a strong theoretical underpinning making it useful for individuals, as well as an academic educational resource. It is designed to be used by an independent reader or, equally, for the purpose of supplementing a professional development course or workshop.
