The World Economic Forum Future of Jobs report argues that emotional intelligence, creativity, and people management will be among the top skills needed for jobs in 2020.
Emotional Quotient (EQ) or Emotional Intelligence is a measure of your ability to process emotions, communicate, and relate with others. But what does it REALLY tell you, and how can you use what you learn about your EQ to help you become a better leader?
People skills are one of the fundamental components of understanding someone’s emotional intelligence, or EQ.

Can we learn where an individual’s strengths and weaknesses are, just by observing their people skills?
EQ has been in the news a lot recently. From Google making it a large part of their hiring process, to a spate of published articles and papers linking it to success. Still, many HR managers find themselves asking: What is eq? Why is it important? And why does it matter in the modern workplace?
