Summary Many students who are intellectually capable of succeeding have difficulties with a variety of non-cognitive competencies such as time and stress management, establishing positive relationships, and making wise decisions. They often adopt dysfunctional coping styles that can cripple their academic efforts. Increasingly, one of the missing factors in student success seems to be emotional intelligence. Written specifically for students by recognized authorities in emotional intelligence, this book will help them understand and develop their emotional intelligence in order to enjoy a richer learning experience and superior academic achievement. This book provides a thorough grounding in what emotional intelligence is, why it is different from one's intelligence quotient, and how emotional intelligence skills can make a student a star performer
