Emotional intelligence is described as the capacity for recognizing our own feelings and those of others, for motivating ourselves, and for managing emotions well in ourselves and in our relationships. - Daniel Goleman, 1998.
"You don't compete with products alone anymore, but how well you deploy your people".
Maybe you know someone yourself who was a genius in the classroom but who’s made heavy weather of their career. The reason is simple. I.Q is only one aspect of doing well. The other is our ability to empathise, to fit in, to understand, to handle others - and ourselves. We call it Emotional Intelligence or EI.
Traditionally, the emphasis when evaluating potential performance has been on intellectual; now compelling research indicates that emotional intelligence is twice as important as IQ plus technical skills for outstanding performance. When IQ test scores are correlated with how well people perform in their careers, the highest estimate of how much difference IQ accounts for is about 25%.
