Except for teleportation, few superpowers can have as great an impact on our personal and professional lives as emotional intelligence.”
— Khali Henderson, Senior Partner at BuzzTheory Strategies
A life-transforming guidebook helps readers uncover, develop and activate their unique EQ leadership “superpowers” says Cheryl O’Donoghue, author of How to Be an Emotionally Intelligent Leader (While Crushing Your Goals). The book is intended to help organizations and individuals meet the demand for a more emotionally intelligent workforce and to “help you unlock the best kept secret to a long and prosperous career—your own emotional intelligence—and how you can use it to lead yourself and those around you in a way that makes you relevant, respected and indispensable,” Donoghue says.
Donoghue is a longtime executive, emotional intelligence leadership champion and coach. She says she intended How to Be an Emotionally Intelligent Leader to feature compelling storytelling from 20 leaders of different ages and backgrounds, an to be an eye-opening “superpowers” self-assessment with plenty of intriguing exercises.
All royalties earned from O’Donoghue’s books go to the charitable nonprofit Mission Sisters Who Work, an organization that provides women self-empowerment and emotional intelligence books and training, as well as scholarships needed to help take charge of their lives, so they are well-equipped to close their own gender, opportunity and pay gaps. The organization has a special focus on serving those from underprivileged communities interested in business careers in STEM. ◊
