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 skills.\" \"Albrecht explains the scientific aspects of practical intelligence and brings it down to earth with concrete examples, stories, cases, and practical exercises.\"--Jacket.<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
