Summary:Karl Albrecht’s bestselling book Social Intelligence showed us how
dealing with people and social situations can determine success both
at work and in life. Now, in this groundbreaking book Practical
Intelligence, Albrecht takes the next step and explains how practical
intelligence (PI) qualifies as one of the key life skills and offers
a conceptual structure for defining and describing common sense.
Throughout Practical Intelligence, Albrecht explains that people with
practical intelligence can employ language skills, make better
decisions, think in terms of options and possibilities, embrace
ambiguity and complexity, articulate problems clearly and work
through to solutions, have original ideas, and influence the ideas of
others. Albrecht shows that everyone’s PI skills can be improved with
proper education and training and challenges all of us—from parents
and teachers to executives and managers—to upgrade our own skills and
help others develop their own PI abilities.
