As part of the series Leadership and Executive Coaching, Corporate Emotional Intelligence is a seminal work for business communication, management and organisational behaviour in the 21st Century, setting a new precedent for business leadership and management books. 

It analyses how human behaviour is conditioned within corporate cultures, how managers come to adopt unconscious controlling habits that are counter-productive and which create cultures of fear. It shows how through the art of coaching and mentoring, breaking habits and personal development, transformational leadership within teams can result and, through theory and practise, shows us how to lead when managing people in the business environment.  

Unique to this leadership coaching book is the introduction of the Corporapath- the Corporate Hostage and to the anxiety disorder CTSD - Corporate Traumatic Stress Disorder, yielding a profound new level of self-awareness for all corporate citizens. Success now requires a different kind of business intelligence: IQ + EQ is no longer sufficient. We now need CEQ - Corporate Emotional Intelligence - the ability to read, understand and manage the psychological states and behaviours that are unique to corporate cultures and emotionally intelligent leadership.

"In the same way that Daniel Goleman’s work on emotional intelligence (EQ) dramatically shifted our view on how non-cognitive skills matter as much as IQ,  Gareth’s CEQ will inspire a new wave of thinking." Mike Morrison, University of Toyota
