Emotional intelligence is the unique repertoire of emotional skills that a person uses to navigate the every day challenges of life. It is the capacity to recognize our feelings and those of others, for motivating ourselves, and for managing emotions in ourselves and our relationships.
Emotional intelligence represents the body of social skills that influence the way we perceive and express ourselves, develop and maintain social relationships, and cope with challenges.
Emotional intelligence contributes to our success both as leaders and employees, in working teams , and in a business environment.
There is a significant body of research that suggests that emotional intelligence is a better predictor of success than IQ. We see well developed emotional skills in higher performing leaders and teams. No matter how intellectually intelligent someone is, success tends to be governed by how well they communicate their ideas and interact with their peers.
