What is emotional Intelligence?

To put it into context, I am sure that you are familiar with the term IQ or Intelligence Quotient. In the past ten years a body of research has been developed which as concentrated on why IQ alone has not been a very accurate predictor of success.

Have you ever wondered why the smartest person in your class didn't become the most successful, or why someone who was 'just average' went on to achieve great success in business?

The missing link has now been identified as Emotional Intelligence, which is responsible for as much as 80% of our success. It is a much better predictor of learned. It takes more than just a short seminar it takes a high level of motivation, determination and practice, but these competencies are able to be developed by anyone who is prepared to make the effort.

In 1990, two academics Peter Salovey and Jack Mayer, psychologists at Yale university, coined the term Emotional Intelligence to describe the set of emotional competencies which determine success. This field of study known as Emotional Intelligence was popularized by Daniel Goleman's book Emotional Intelligence which became an international bestseller. His recent articles in Harvard Business Review have been its most commonly requested reprints. Goleman's research redefined what it means to be smart by acknowledging the importance of emotions in our personal and professional lives.
The five key competencies are:
  • Self awareness
  • Managing emotions
  • Motivation
  • Empathy
  • Social skills
This set of competencies distinguishes how people manage feelings, interact and communicate. Goleman's research shows that people who have E.I have more success in their lives as parents, partners and workers. Emotional Intelligence training has also been shown to markedly increase company profit levels.

A simple definition of Emotional Intelligence is that it is a way of recognizing, understanding and choosing how we think, feel and act. The good news is that unlike IQ, Emotional Intelligence can be learned. IQ doesn't change significantly throughout life. However E.I. can be improved through identifying and practicing the skills with purposeful activities and experience.
