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

  • A better understanding one's own psychological state, which can include managing stress effectively and being less likely to suffer from depression.
