The Dalai Lama backs Emotional Intelligence 2.0.

It is a tremendous honor for TalentSmart to receive the following endorsement for our new book Emotional Intelligence 2.0:

“All sentient beings possess awareness, but among them human beings possess great intelligence. Subject to a constant stream of positive and negative thoughts and emotions, what distinguishes us as human beings is that we are capable of positive change. Emotional Intelligence 2.0 succinctly explains how to deal with emotions creatively and employ our intelligence in a beneficial way.”


The Dalai Lama is the 1989 Nobel Peace Prize winner, recognized for the fact that in his struggle to liberate Tibet he consistently has opposed the use of violence. He has instead advocated peaceful solutions based on tolerance and mutual respect to preserve the historical and cultural heritage of his people. He was recognized for constructive and forward-looking proposals for solutions to international conflicts, human rights issues, and global environmental problems.

A self-described “simple Buddhist monk,” the Dalai Lama is considered by many to be one of the world's enduring figures of struggle and compassion against oppression. As the spiritual leader and head of state for Tibetans, he lives in exile in India and addresses groups to share his knowledge of tolerance and non-violence in the face of conflict.

Emotional Intelligence 2.0 has also received endorsements from Ken Blanchard, Stephen Covey, and Patrick Lencioni, among others.
