“In the long run, EQ (emotional quotient) trumps IQ (intelligence quotient). Without being a source of energy for others, very little can be accomplished.”
– Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft.
The fact is, an individual’s technical skills may qualify them for a particular job, but it is their Emotional intelligence (EQ) that will ultimately determine their success in that job. And the higher in the organization, the more important that EQ is.
Emotional intelligence is a set of emotional and social skills that collectively establish how well we:
- Perceive and express ourselves
- Develop and maintain social relationships
- Cope with challenges
- Use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way
It is a predictor of success in life and work.
Learn why EQ is such a powerful tool that all leaders should be using.
