CHOICE Review

Drawing on her experience as a poetic translator and her expertise in cross-cultural leadership, Gauthier (HEC Paris, France) wrestles with understanding the complexity of organizations and human beings and the dilemma behind how standardized tests box people into acting and reacting in ways that may not actually be real. In leadership literature, general intelligence and emotional intelligence are well known concepts, but not much is known about relational intelligence (savoir-relier). To fill this gap, the author elaborates on how senses affect relationships and how leaders can gain insight from an unlikely source: poetry. The book trains readers to be poets and translators in the business context. Gauthier creates a protocol, not a process, on how to develop this new intelligence in a complex, collaborative world, using examples of individuals and organizations to illustrate concepts discussed. The monograph, which contains a useful notes section, should be read from start to finish for the most impact. After reading the book, readers will understand their own relational intelligence and its impact on relationships with self, others, organizations, and society. In the end, the book provides a framework that enables business leaders to value difference, work across boundaries, and navigate complex systems. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above. --William Anthony Garrett, University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville
