“At last, a handbook for managers that will help bring important topics to the table for discussion to improve teamwork. Adele Lynn has included short ingeniously designed activities that get results quickly and improve the emotional intelligence of any team.”—Bob Wall, author, Coaching for Emotional Intelligence

“Adele Lynn has written an amazingly accessible resource book to increase teamwork and leader effectiveness through emotional intelligence exercises. A can-do companion to her The EQ Difference, this work gives us a precise step-by-step protocol so leaders and facilitators can deploy 50 creative and awareness-producing activities. I am already referring to her highly useful Family of Emotions. The consideration she shows for the learner is a model for everyone who leads, educates, or trains...or (like 3 billion of us) struggles with our feelings.”—Gus Lee, author, Courage: The Backbone of Leadership and China Boy

“The perfect EQ toolbox to develop and maintain a healthy corporate culture.”—John Dickson, CEO, and the entire Redstone Presbyterian Care Executive Staff

“Adele’s book offers practical guidance to help us translate EQ theory into behaviors designed to improve our organization’s performance.”—Vin Cerasuolo, CEO, Century Heritage FCU

If you've got key teams, projects, and organizational initiatives that require teamwork or working across organizational boundaries, this book is for you”—William C. Byham, Ph.D., Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Development Dimensions International (DDI)
