Working with Emotional Intelligence

What matters is hard work and emotional intelligence’ - Millard Drexler

Many people are familiar with the concept of an IQ, which measures innate intelligence. However, it is EQ — or emotional intelligence — that often plays an even more vital role in our success at work. Emotional Intelligence refers to one’s ability to recognize and manage his/her own emotions, recognize and respond to the emotions of others and build effective social relationships that support success at both work and home.
