"Measuring Emotional Intelligence" published by Summit Publishing Group

The first and most complete reference to measuring and using emotional intelligence!

Written by Steve P. Simmons, M.Ed. and John C. Simmons

Measuring Emotional Intelligence  is the first emotional intelligence book to completely describe and quantify all 13 of the emotional intelligence traits:  Emotional Energy, Stress, Optimism, Self-esteem, Commitment to Work, Attention to Detail, Desire for Change, Courage, Self-direction, Assertiveness, Tolerance, Consideration for Others, and Sociability.

The book shows what each trait is like, how to measure it by observation, strengths of the trait, potential difficulties with the trait, how each trait predicts job compatibility and success, and how each trait affects relationship compatibility and success.  Recommendations are also given to improve job and relational success.

This emotional intelligence book is based upon 20 years of research using the Simmons Personal Survey, which measures the 13 key characteristics of emotional intelligence.  The nationally renowned survey helps companies gain a competitive edge in selecting, placing, developing, training, and promoting employees.  It is also used in counseling settings.

There is a lesson that can be learned by everyone in Measuring Emotional Intelligence:

  • Employees can learn about their own emotional characteristics and how they affect job performance.

  • Managers can compare traits to specific jobs and make quality decisions which will improve their job hiring practices and job performance expectations.

  • Job seekers can learn about their personal traits and determine which jobs best suit them.

  • Executives can find new ways to hire more productive employees, develop employees, build productivity, increase sales, and to dramatically decrease employee related costs.

  • Counselors can find help in dealing with the psychological, relational, and job-related needs of their clients.

  • Business consultants can better help companies select, place, develop, train, promote, and outplace employees.

  • Friends can learn how to effectively relate to a wide variety of people.

  • Couples can develop stronger personal relationships by learning which characteristics are compatible, which cause conflict, and how to solve the conflicts.

  • Parents can learn how to be more effective in preparing their children for success.

  • Teachers can become more effective in stimulating learning and managing the classroom.

  • Everyone can discover the dynamics of emotional and behavioral development.
