Emotional Intelligence: Don’t be a Sheldon - online

“What really matters for success, character, happiness and life long achievements is a definite set of emotional skills – your EQ — not just purely cognitive abilities that are measured by conventional IQ tests.” — Daniel Goleman

What is Emotional Intelligence? It is the awareness of our emotions that drive our behavior, and how it impacts others (both positively and negatively), and then learning how to manage these emotions. Why is it important to have a high emotional intelligence?

Your Emotional Intelligence has a huge impact on your success as a leader. Research shows that people with strong emotional intelligence are more likely to succeed than those with high IQs or relevant experience. Therefore, Emotional Intelligence affects everything you do as you lead your team. Having a high Emotional Intelligence allows you to help drive yourself and your team to your highest success
