The Emotionally Intelligent Office

The School of Life

Overview

Going to work can feel daunting due to the looming presence of senior staff and deadlines. The constant cut-throat focus on profit can make employees feel secondary in the workplace. Some modern businesses try to integrate different leadership styles into the workplace to encourage thoughtful collaboration and compassion.

Co-founded by philosopher Alain de Botton in 2008, The School of Life is an international educational company focused on giving readers advice for life's biggest questions.

The book utilizes examples of ancient and recent history, along with hypothetical scenarios, to help readers understand how best to implement emotional intelligence into office life. Each chapter identifies a core characteristic that is necessary to create an all-inclusive and supportive work environment.

Favorite Quote

"Our desire to assume that the workplace is emotionally simpler than it really is has been partly sustained by its long-standing neglect at the hands of culture."
