EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE

I was so inspired by Lt Col Sharon Latour and Lt Gen Bradley Hosmer's article ("Emotional Intelligence: Implications for all United States Air Force Leaders," winter 2002) that I felt compelled to write a short message of thanks! To be honest, I was delighted to see the Journal's dedication to the leadership topic in this issue, and it was interesting to read this article in particular. With a psychology background and interest in human behavior, I wanted to learn more about emotional intelligence (EI), so I ran out and purchased two books by Dr. Daniel Goleman: Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ (his original book on EI) and Primal Leadership: Realizing the Power of Emotional Intelligence (written with Richard Boyatzis and Annie McKee).

Thanks again for the spark needed to ignite my passion to learn more about EI. I look forward to seeing Air Force leaders continue to embrace EI.
