Human Drama Inc.
Emotional Intelligence in the Workplace

First Edition
  • Neeta Mohla - Managing Director, InspireOne Consultants, New Delhi

November 2015 | 188 pages | SAGE Response

Life at work can be compared to a theatre where human emotions of elation, grief, happiness, winning, losing, etc., are at play. In this setting, a few lose their nerve and careers while others thrive. Success at work is not just achieved with educational qualifications, emotional intelligence is also an equal factor. Written in an anecdotal style with real-life examples, Neeta Mohla shares the script for succeeding at work.

The book’s practical approach is based on the author’s rich experience of working with business leaders and senior executives, including the C-suite of leading organizations.


Unique features of the book:

•       Explains EI at the workplace through real-life cases and examples, rather than focusing on the concept.

•       Explores the application of EI specifically in the Indian context

•       Engaging, conversational read with drama as the central theme

•       Pull-out boxes, quotes and research
