Why You Need More Emotional Intelligence
When emotional intelligence first appeared to the masses, it served as the missing link in a peculiar finding: people with average IQs outperform those with the highest IQs 70% of the time. This anomaly threw a massive wrench into what many people had always assumed was the sole source of success-IQ.

Emotional Intelligence( EQ/EI)

Is the measure of an individual’s abilities to recognise and manage their emotions, and the emotions of other people, both individually and in groups.

Benefits of a higher EQ

  • Ease in forming and maintaining interpersonal relationships and in ‘fitting in’ to group situations.
  • A better understanding one's own psychological state, which can include managing stress effectively and being less likely to suffer from depression.

IQ and EQ

There is no correlation between IQ and EQ scores.

IQ has no connection with how people understand and deal with their emotions and the emotions of others (EQ). 

You simply can’t predict emotional intelligence based on how smart someone is.

Emotional intelligence and success

EQ relates to many skills crucial for long-term success:

  • Perseverance: not being brought low by a single setback;
  • Social perception: being able to understand and empathize with others;
  • Communication: the ability to talk with and understand others clearly and concisely;
  • Persuasion: being able to convince others to follow a course of action or cooperate; and
  • Cooperation: the willingness and ability to effectively work with others for the good of the team.

EQ and leadership

To effectively lead others and meet long-term goals (such as improving sustainability), leaders need to be able to influence others and get them to commit to a course of action. 

Without the ability to understand and engage with others on an emotional level, leaders are not as effective at producing results for the organization as a whole.
