I do not know why it took me so long to pick up this book, seeing that it has been on my bookshelf for the past 8 months. It is a very good read (so far and I am sure I will not be disappointed as I continue) not only for personal insight but also a much needed guiding influence for those in business, especially in my industry of recruitment.
One of the key attributes of a Recruitment Consultant is being able to effectively match the “right” candidate with the “right” position aka the right company. Understanding the nuances of EI both from a candidate perspective and from the perspective of the Company wishing to hire the candidate creates a win-win situation for all involved.
Once I complete this book – then it is on to Social Intelligence also by Daniel Goldman.
