Atlanta, GA, July 08, 2011 --( The People-Profit Connection: How Emotional Intelligence Can Maximize People Skills and Maximize Your Profits hit online stores this month. The third edition brings together the core concepts of the first two editions while addressing the new and emerging trends in the construction industry.

In this book, Brent Darnell introduces his unique approach to teaching Emotional Intelligence skills in technically trained professions. Emotional Intelligence is the ability to identify, assess and manage one's own emotions and those of others. The People-Profit Connection applies Emotional Intelligence to the major problems that exist within the construction industry. In doing so, Brent unlocks the easy and attainable changes that any company and its people can make to foster better business relationships and improve their industry image.

Emotional Intelligence includes skills such as social competence, stress tolerance, emotional self-awareness and assertiveness. This ability is like an IQ in that it is naturally found in varying degrees from person to person. However, unlike an IQ, Emotional Intelligence can be increased exponentially through specialized programs and techniques like those discussed in the People-Profit Connection.

“The third edition offers even more insight and ideas behind the concept of Emotional Intelligence,” said Brent Darnell, author of the People-Profit Connection. “What makes this book unique is that it applies the EI concept specifically to the construction industry, a field which can easily make drastic changes with its use.”

Brent Darnell is President of Brent Darnell International, bestselling author and in-demand speaker. He attended Georgia Tech for Mechanical Engineering and has extensive experience in the construction industry. Recognizing that problems in technical careers arise from low emotional intelligence and poor leadership, Brent has created fundamental behavioral shifts in thousands of employees worldwide.
