The Emotionally Intelligent Manager: How to Develop and Use the Four Key Emotional Skills of Leadership


  • Hardcover: 320 pages
  • Publisher: Jossey-Bass; 1 edition (April 5, 2004)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 0787970719

We have long been taught that emotions should be felt and expressed in carefully controlled ways, and then only in certain environments and at certain times. This is especially true when at work, particularly when managing others. It is considered terribly unprofessional to express emotion while on the job, and many of us believe that our biggest mistakes and regrets are due to our reactions at those times when our emotions get the better of us. David R. Caruso and Peter Salovey believe that this view of emotion is not correct. The emotion centers of the brain, they argue, are not relegated to a secondary place in our thinking and reasoning, but instead are an integral part of what it means to think, reason, and to be intelligent. In The Emotionally Intelligent Manager, they show that emotion is not just important, but absolutely necessary for us to make good decisions, take action to solve problems, cope with change, and succeed. The authors detail a practical four-part hierarchy of emotional skills: identifying emotions, using emotions to facilitate thinking, understanding emotions, and managing emotions—and show how we can measure, learn, and develop each skill and employ them in an integrated way to solve our most difficult work-related problems.

This fascinating book demonstrates that to be a good communicator and therefore an effective manager, a person must have five qualities in order to be viewed as totally credible–competence, character, composure, sociability, and extroversion. While some executives seem to possess all these qualities and be born with savvy communication skills, Weiner shows how anyone can find ways to make measurable improvements in how they present themselves that will enhance their credibility.

“This is an excellent read with some sound advice on maintaining your self-esteem - which is a crucial skill in modern life.”

People now have more choices than ever before - but are they any happier?

There’s evidence to suggest that many are drowning under the weight of their responsibilities and losing confidence in their ability to juggle more and more tasks.
—Steve and Lynn Clark are one such couple.

Married with a 5-year-old child, they are successful and happy. On the surface.

But their relationship is beginning to stagnate and their confidence in their life together - and each other - is starting to crumble.

Until, that is, an unsolicited text message asks a searching question.It’s the first of a series of texts that cause them to question their behaviour and values - and devise a series of remedies to their growing problems.

Together, Steve and Lynn create and explore 15 ways to build confidence. Simple principles that anyone can apply to their own lives with similar results.

Through this modern parable, Bill McFarlan (author of the bestselling Drop the Pink Elephant) and psychiatrist Dr Alex Yellowlees (one of Britain’s foremost experts in self-esteem) get to the root of issues that affect us all. Are you good enough? will help you walk tall, reach your goals, eliminate self-doubt and banish low self-esteem for good.

Personality and Intelligence at Work


  • Paperback: 416 pages
  • Publisher: Psychology Press; 1 edition (April 11, 2008)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 1841695866

Personality and Intelligence at Work examines the increasingly controversial role of individual differences in predicting and determining behaviour at work. It combines approaches from organizational psychology and personality theory to critically examine the physical, psychological and psycho-analytic aspects of individual differences, and how they impact on the world of work.

Topics covered include the role of IQ at work as the best predictor of success, but also the importance of increasingly recognized social intelligences such as emotional intelligence (EQ). The significance of personality traits and the impact of temperaments on work performance are also examined, and the methods used to assess work behaviour and potential are reviewed. Psychological tests, which measure personality traits, are questioned as accurate predictors of behaviour at work, alongside other factors such as job satisfaction, productivity, absenteeism and turnover.

This new, thoroughly revised and updated edition of Personality at Work provides a comprehensive review of the relevant literature from psychology, sociology and management science. It will be of interest to students of organizational psychology and business and management studies, as well as HR professionals.

Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is a way of organizing software. If your company's development projects adhere to the principles of SOA, the outcome will be an inventory of modular units called “services,” which allow for a quick response to change.

This book tells the SOA story in a simple, straightforward manner that will help you understand not only the buzzwords and benefits, but also the technologies that underlie SOA: XML, WSDL, SOAP, XPath, BPEL, SCA, and SDO. And through it all, the authors provide business examples and illustrations, giving a practical meaning to abstract ideas.

SOA for the Business Developer

• Gives a detailed overview of Extensible Markup Language (XML), including namespaces and XML schema.

• Describes Web Services Definition Language (WSDL) and SOAP, the standard SOA technologies.

• Gives a clear tutorial on XML Path Language (XPath), a language for deriving data from transmitted messages and other sources. XPath is useful for working with a variety of other technologies, including several described in this book.

• Gives comprehensive details on BPEL 2.0, a language that coordinates services and whose preceding version is already in numerous products. Our coverage is sufficient for most of your work with BPEL and includes a quick-reference guide.

• Introduces Service Component Architecture (SCA), a proposed standard for composing and deploying applications. You're sure to hear more of SCA, which is sponsored by 18 companies, including IBM, Oracle, and Sun Microsystems.

  • Publisher: Apress (March 27, 2006)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 1590596331

I would highly recommend this as a resource for any developers who want to really dig in and solidify their working knowledge of PHP and web services, or just want to explore the nuances and complexities of XML DTDs and namespaces.

— Nathan Smith, Godbit Project

Pro PHP XML and Web Services is the authoritative guide to using the XML features of PHP 5 and PHP 6. No other book covers XML and Web Services in PHP as deeply as this title. The first four chapters introduce the core concepts of XML required for proficiency, and will bring you up to speed on the terminology and key concepts you need to proceed with the rest of the book. Next, the book explores utilizing XML and Web Services with PHP5. Topics include DOM, SimpleXML, SAX, xmlReader, XSLT, RDF, RSS, WDDX, XML-RPC, REST, SOAP, and UDDI.

Author Robert Richards, a major contributor to the PHP XML codebase, is a leading expert in the PHP community. In this book, Richards covers all topics in depth, blending theory with practical examples. Youll find case studies for the most popular web services like Amazon, Google, eBay, and Yahoo. The book also covers XML capabilities, demonstrated through informative examples, in the PEAR libraries.

About the Author
Robert Richards, currently an independent contractor, has worked in various fields including Medical Information, Telecommunications, Media and E-Learning. Having been exposed to XML since its inception and used for various projects during his career, his most extensive work with the technology was within the E-Learning space. He helped created a proprietary XML based application server which used XML for data publishing, defining application business logic as well as data querying. He was also the lead engineer for the company’s involvement in SCORM (Shareable Content Object Reference Model), used for Web based learning, established by the Department of Defense through its Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) initiative.
After becoming the latest casualty of the “dot-com” implosion in 2001, Rob had his first taste of PHP and began contributing code to the domxml extension in 2002. Since then he became one of the authors of the DOM extension for PHP 5, contributes to the other XML based extensions and has authored the xmlReader, for PHP 5, and xmlwriter, for PHP 4.3+, extensions. Also on occasion, he contributes bug fixes to the libxml2 project found during the development of these extensions.

Foundations of ASP.NET AJAX


  • Paperback: 268 pages
  • Publisher: Apress; 2Rev Ed edition (November 12, 2007)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 1590598288

Since the emergence of Google Maps 12 months ago, Ajax programming techniques have become one of the hottest topics in the programming arena. To date, the frameworks available for creating these applications have been complex and have separated the development of the client–side Ajax (on the user’s machine) from the server–side supporting technology (on the company’s machines). This separation has made development slow and difficult.

ASP.NET AJAX is Microsoft’s solution to this problem. ASP.NET AJAX (formerly code–named Atlas) is a set of extensions to the existing ASP.NET 2.0 technology that provides you with a fast-and-simple environment to create Ajax applications. Microsoft has combined Ajax with ASP.NET technology and provided a unified set of development tools within Visual Studio 2005. For the first time, Ajax applications can be developed seamlessly in conjunction with a supporting technology.

Foundations of ASP.NET AJAX (written by Laurence Moroney the author of Apress successful Foundations of Atlas) gives you a detailed grounding in how ASP.NET AJAX works. It takes you swiftly through the basic principles of Ajax, then deep into the heart of the technology, where every namespace is discussed and every function considered. By the end of the book, you’ll know all the essentials to confidently produce cutting-edge ASP.NET AJAX applications swiftly and professionally. You will not need any reference beyond this book.

Ajax in Oracle JDeveloper


  • Paperback: 224 pages
  • Publisher: Springer; 1 edition (April 16, 2008)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 3540775951

Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (Ajax) is a web technique used to transfer data between a browser and server asynchronously without posting the web page to the server. “Asynchronously” implies that the processing of the web page continues while the Ajax request is sent to the server and a response is received from the server. The web page, or section(s) of the web page, is refreshed with the Ajax response without reposting the web page. Ajax has the following advantages over non-Ajax web applications.

- Reduced response time and reduced server load, as the complete web page is not reposted.

- Reduced bandwidth of web applications as only data is transferred and the HTML format is applied in the browser.

- Separation of data, format and style.

The book covers web search and RSS Feed with Ajax as well as form validation with Ajax frameworks for Java, JSP, JSF, and PHP. It discusses using Ajax in Oracle JDeveloper and is IDE based. JDeveloper has the following advantages over Eclipse IDE.

- JDeveloper 11g provides an integrated JavaScript Editor for Ajax/Web development.

- It also provides a PHP extension.

- JDeveloper has a built-in support for JSF and for JDBC.

PHP Solutions: Dynamic Web Design Made Easy


  • Paperback: 488 pages
  • Publisher: friends of ED (November 20, 2006)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 1590597311

You want to make your websites more dynamic by adding a feedback form, creating a private area where members can upload images that are automatically resized, or perhaps storing all your content in a database. The problem is, you’re not a programmer and the thought of writing code sends a chill up your spine. Or maybe you’ve dabbled a bit in PHP and MySQL, but you can’t get past baby steps. If this describes you, then you’ve just found the right book.

PHP and the MySQL database are deservedly the most popular combination for creating dynamic websites. They’re free, easy to use, and provided by many web hosting companies in their standard packages. Unfortunately, most PHP books either expect you to be an expert already or force you to go through endless exercises of little practical value. In contrast, this book gives you real value right away through a series of practical examples that you can incorporate directly into your sites, optimizing performance and adding functionality such as file uploading, email feedback forms, image galleries, content management systems, and much more. Each solution is created with not only functionality in mind, but also visual design.

But this book doesn’t just provide a collection of ready-made scripts: each PHP Solution builds on what’s gone before, teaching you the basics of PHP and database design quickly and painlessly. By the end of the book, you’ll have the confidence to start writing your own scripts or&8212;if you prefer to leave that task to others–to adapt existing scripts to your own requirements.

Right from the start, you’re shown how easy it is to protect your sites by adopting secure coding practices. The book has been written with an eye on forward and backward compatibility–recommending the latest PHP 5 techniques, but providing alternative solutions for servers still running PHP 4.3. All database examples demonstrate how to use the original MySQL extension, MySQL Improved, or the PHP Data Objects (PDO) introduced in PHP 5.1, letting you choose the most suitable option for your setup.

David Powers has been professionally involved with the electronic media for some 30 years, mostly in radio and television he was BBC Tokyo correspondent in the late 1980s and early 1990s—but more recently with the Internet. He built his first site in 1995, and was instantly hooked. Eventually, the sheer tedium of updating content convinced him there must be a better way. After a brief flirtation with ASP, he experimented with PHP, and found himself hooked yet again.

A fluent Japanese speaker, Powers specializes in building Japanese-English bilingual websites, writing about Japan, and translating Japanese . He co-authored Foundation Dreamweaver MX 2004 (1590593081) and PHP Web Development with Dreamweaver MX 2004 (1590593502). Powers also worked as technical reviewer on a number of web-related titles for Apress.
