Book Review: Emotional Intelligence for Project Managers
Academic research tells us that project success correlates to emotional intelligence (not IQ) and consequently emotional intelligence is now recognised as a requisite skill for project managers. Anthony Mersino has written a book that provides advice on applying emotional intelligence specifically within the project management environment.
The book starts with an introduction to emotional intelligence and Mersino’s emotional intelligence framework. It explains how the reader can become more aware of their emotions and gives advice on how to control and manage those emotions. The author then explains how the reader can use emotional intelligence to manage both stakeholders and project teams.
