Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ by Daniel Goleman
Wm. T. (Bill) Robinson III is member in charge of the Florence, Ky., office of Frost Brown Todd. In August, he becomes president of the American Bar Association.
“This book is about creating a more effective plan for personal success through ‘emotional skill’ development to achieve better interpersonal communications. It looks specifically at how we can strengthen our emotional intelligence—our emotional quotient, or EQ—and use it in such ways as to complement our IQ. An enhanced EQ goes a long way in a profession in which the effectiveness of our communications with clients and third parties—real people—will often determine the outcome of a legal project or dispute.”
