Emotionale Intelligenz ist ein wichtiger Faktor im Berufs- und Privatleben. Sie spielt nachweislich für Erfolg und Misserfolg der Karriere eine größere Rolle als die fachliche Qualifikation.

Dieses Buch vermittelt einen Aktionsplan mit einfachen und sofort anwendbaren Strategien und Übungen. Schritt für Schritt werden die für einen hohen EQ erforderlichen Basisfähigkeiten Eigenwahrnehmung, Selbstkontrolle, Wahrnehmung anderer und Beziehungsmanagement erarbeitet und verbessert. Eine objektive Beurteilung der eigenen Fähigkeiten ist online mit dem beliebten Emotional-Intelligence-Appraisal®-Test möglich; mit seiner Hilfe können in regelmäßigen Abständen die Fortschritte nachvollzogen werden. Dieses kompakte Praxisbuch macht emotionale Intelligenz fernab komplizierter Theorie greifbar und in einfachen Schritten erlernbar – für jedermann.

Anleitung für ein aufrechtes Leben Der Schauspieler und Autor Ethan Hawke hat sich für sein neues Buch eines sehr charmanten Tricks bedient: Er lässt einen angeblichen Vorfahren, den Ritter Sir Thomas Lemuel Hawke, einen Brief voller kluger Tipps und Lebensweisheiten an seine Kinder schreiben, die – natürlich – bis heute Gültigkeit haben. Was ist wirklich wichtig im Leben? Diese Frage stellt sich der Ritter Sir Thomas Lemuel Hawke im Jahr 1483 am Vorabend einer großen Schlacht. Aus Furcht, seine vier Kinder vielleicht nicht aufwachsen zu sehen, hinterlässt er ihnen einen langen Brief. In zwanzig wunderschönen kleinen Fabeln schildert er, wie ein jeder seinem Leben Schönheit und Bedeutung verleihen kann, indem er Werte wie Dankbarkeit, Freundschaft und Ehrlichkeit zur Grundlage seines Handelns macht. Im Gewand eines mittelalterlichen Handbuchs für Ritter, versehen mit zwanzig feinen Zeichnungen seiner Ehefrau Ryan, erzählt Ethan Hawke eine bezaubernde Geschichte, die uns erkennen lässt, worauf es wirklich ankommt.
