It is very important to understand that emotional intelligence is not the opposite of intelligence, it is not the triumph of heart over head, it is the unique intersection of both.
~ David Caruso
Emotional Intelligence: For a while it was regarded as just another fad, new age organisational ‘touchy-feely’ approach that wouldn’t last.
Research however, indicates that employees who are more emotionally intelligent are reported by their supervisors as being more–
- Innovative and creative in the workplace
- Better team players
- Exhibit better customer service skills
- Exhibit higher organisational commitment
- Better sales performance
Getting in touch with your feelings – as opposed to leaving them at the door – is actually essential to success in the workplace.
Emotional Intelligence is being More aware. More intentional. More purposeful. It is no longer a nice-to-have, it is an essential skill for success in the 4th industrial revolution.
Emotional Intelligence is being smart with feelings…
More aware. More intentional. More purposeful.
How emotionally intelligent are you?
