Based on the original theory of Emotional Intelligence
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.

One of the most powerful questions you can ask is "how are you?". But only if you ask it as a real question. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t4w9EI3fsR8
Once we have a baseline we ask: how do these emotions impact you, why do you feel this way and how can you move these emotions?
The ability model of emotional intelligence developed by Mayer and Salovey forms the basis for the book. The Educator's Practical Guide to Emotional Intelligence expands on our Leader's Guide to Solving Challenges with Emotional Intelligence (Caruso & Rees, 2018).
The book is available on Amazon in print and Kindle formats. Schools wishing to purchase more than 50 copies of the print version should contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org).
