What is Emotional Intelligence?

Emotional intelligence has been proved to be a strong predictor of success in work and life. Emotional effectiveness leads to better team relationships, collaboration, customer service and success.  Emotional Intelligence is about understanding and cultivating the vital emotional and social skills that influence the way we:

  • understand ourselves and express ourselves to others.

  • cultivate and maintain social relationships.

  • respond to stress and challenges.

  • use emotional information in an effective way.

Emotional intelligence can reflect and influence one’s overall well-being and ability to succeed in life. Individuals and teams with strong emotional intelligence experience greater emotional resilience because they understand their own emotional needs and are better at building trusting relationships, adapting to change and manage stress more effectively, leading to higher satisfaction and performance.
