What is Emotional Intelligence?
Emotional Intelligence goes beyond just knowledge and expertise, research today shows that soft skills matter even more for success and offers a major competitive advantage in the business world.
While qualifications are important, what’s even more important is your ability to be flexible in your behaviour and skilled in dealing with people handling all difficult situations with ease and turning them into rewarding outcomes.
Daniel Goleman explains “the rules for work are changing we’re being judged by a new yard stick. Not just by how smart we are, or by our training and expertise but also how well we handle ourselves and each other”
Emotional intelligence is a different way of being smart, it is based on 5 elements
1. Self awareness
3. Self regulation
5. Adaptiveness in Relationships
By blending natural skills and wisdom along with observation and mindful attention, Emotional Intelligence is about being able to recognise, manage and successful act effectively in any given situation. Producing a positive and productive outcome for self and others.
Your success in life it not about what happens to you, but more importantly how do you choose to react to it. This is what truly determines a fulfilled happy existence.
