Product Overview

This new book teaches you to apply emotional intelligence to instruction and leadership. You'll learn to:

  • Develop your emotional intelligence skills
  • Solve difficult instructional and leadership challenges
  • Enhance student well-being and academic performance

This book teaches you emotional intelligence skills to help you become a more emotionally intelligent educator. Learn how to Map Emotions, Match Emotions, understand the Meaning of Emotions and Move Emotions—the four skills of emotional intelligence based on the original scientific theory of emotional intelligence by psychologists John (Jack) Mayer and Peter Salovey. With these skills you can create a more positive school culture and classroom climate, be a more effective educator and a better colleague. We address difficult challenges every educator faces and provide you with a set of Emotional Intelligence Blueprints to successfully address these challenges. We then teach you how to build your own Blueprint.

“The ability-based model of emotional intelligence provides a valid and useful framework for coaching individuals, intervening in workplaces, and developing school curricula. David Caruso and his colleagues provide here a powerful explanation of it and helpful set of tools for educators who would like to improve their work in the classroom and outside of it. Now, more than thirty years after the first articles on emotional intelligence were published, I am delighted to see all the ways this idea can be put to good use, especially in the service of students.”
—Peter Salovey, President and Chris Argyris Professor of Psychology, Yale University

The authors combine decades of education, research, teaching and training experience on emotional intelligence.
