Emotional Intelligence stands for good leadership. It consists precisely of those social and emotional skills necessary to motivate and inspire subordinates, to manage with respect and understanding – and to resolve conflicts and ease tensions as they arise. Emotionally intelligent people communicate effectively, form strong relationships and create powerful coping strategies; emotionally unintelligent people don’t –no matter how high their IQs.
A growing body of research shows that Emotional Intelligence is vital to top performance. As confirmed by independent academic research, one-quarter to nearly one-half of all job success can be attributed to Emotional Intelligence. This is especially important when working and managing in a cross-cultural setting.
Great companies need to balance performance and health – Emotional Intelligence is at the intersection of these.
What was once considered that intangible determinant of success beyond IQ, education, experience and personality can today be accurately measured and developed. While emotional intelligence isn’t the sole predictor of human performance and development potential, it is proven to be a key indicator.
And the good news is that EQ is not fixed, and can be developed over time.
