By Stephen R. Covey

First of all, this book sets out a systematic approach to the definition of life goals and a person’s priorities. While these goals are different for everyone, the book helps to understand and clearly formulate them for each reader individually. Then, the book shows how to achieve these goals. And finally, it shows how each person can become better and continue developing. What is important is that it is not about changing the image, but about the real changes and self-improvement on deeper levels. The book does not provide easy solutions and neither does it promise any instant miracles. Any positive changes take time, work, and perseverance. But for anyone seeking to maximize their natural potential, this book is a roadmap.

5. Emotional Intelligence 2.0 

By Travis Bradberry  Emotional Intelligence 2.0 

People started talking about emotional intelligence in 1990, which happened relatively recently. Prior to this, success was associated with the traditional perception of intelligence. IQ was key, but the number of conflicts at work and misunderstandings between business partners continued to increase. 

It turned out that success, in the broader sense of the word, depended on another parameter. Successful people have a high level of emotional intelligence, which determines the effectiveness of their interaction with people around them, as well as with the world in general.

So, what is EQ? Self-awareness (understanding of one’s emotions and motives); self-control (impulse control); empathy; relationship skills (meets the definition of “social dexterity”). It is possible to increase your level of EQ – just consider the recommendations in this book. And if you do, the authors guarantee an improved quality of life.
