4-The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People-Stephen R. Covey

This book does not focus on emotional intelligence, although many of the habits it mentions are actually derived from having high emotional intelligence; Seek first to understand, then to be understood, think win / win and be proactive.

5-A backpack for the universe-Elsa Punset

Some topics in this book are: recognizing the importance of our relationships with others, discovering that there is much more that unites us than what separates us, finding effective ways to communicate, managing the relationship between body and mind, empowering wealth of joy that we enclose, organize ourselves to be able to set and fulfill our goals and help the human brain to counteract its innate tendency “to fearful and distrustful survival.”

This manual is the first in Spanish to be published based on the idea that EI is a set of four skills – perception and expression of emotions, use of emotions to facilitate thinking, understanding of emotions and regulation of emotions – which allow the individual to incorporate emotions into their intelligent system. Very complete manual that touches on most of the topics covered by emotional intelligence.

I have already recommended it many times. There are several aspects that are touched on in the book that are also related to emotional intelligence: taking charge of yourself, loving yourself, avoiding emotions of worry and guilt or avoiding anger.
