What is Emotional Intelligence?
Emotional Intelligence has been defined as “a set of emotional and social skills that influence the way we perceive and express ourselves, develop and maintain social relationships, cope with challenges, and use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way. “
Emotional intelligence is the capacity to recognize the impact our own feelings have on ourselves and to tune into the feelings of those around us, to manage our emotions and our actions, and to interact skillfully with the people around us.
Those who lead with Emotional Intelligence are better equipped to inspire and mobilize others towards making a positive impact in the world.
IQ vs EQ
You need both !
"IQ does not and cannot predict success in life"
Studies have shown that IQ can serve to predict between 1 and 20 percent (the average is 6 percent) of success in a given job. EQ, on the other hand, has been found to be directly responsible for between 27 and 45 percent of job success, depending on the job field."
