Focus on emotional intelligence

Emotional intelligence (EQ) is often more critical to success in the workplace than intelligence or IQ. EQ determines the ability to relate to others, navigate difficult situations with grace, and understand social cues in a virtual room.

Questions that can inform you about a person's EQ:

  • Tell me about a workplace conflict you were involved in. How did you manage it, and could you resolve it?
  • What inspires you?
  • Tell me about a time when you received feedback on your performance that you disagreed with.
