A Different Kind of Being Smart

Have you ever given some real thought to what makes people successful? Some people just seem to get along with others, they don´t get upset easily, they are balanced, proactive, meet challenges with thought and consideration and have great insight into themselves and others. They have what we call high Emotional Intelligence and these EQ skills not only make them pleasant to be around, but they are seen as loyal and trustworthy and they tend to be the ones that get promotions at work and are appreciated and successful as leaders. These skills can be measured, learned and developed and they play a big role in making people feel engaged at work and contributes to culturally diverse workplaces where people can excel and make companies and organizations successful.
All jobs today require Emotional Intelligence. As business has become more complex and more global there are very few, if any jobs, that do not require interaction with other people. People skills have become crucial and there is a big difference between those that have the skills and those that do not and high and average performers. The research is compelling! Competency research in over 200 companies and organisation's worldwide suggests that about one-third (1/3) of this difference is due to technical skills and cognitive ability while two-thirds (2/3) is due to EQ. In top leadership positions, it is even more important where over four-fifths (4/5) of the difference is due to Social Emotional competences.

It is essential in a modern workplace to have a good understanding of your own emotions and be open to feelings and thoughts of others. Making good decisions or “doing the right thing” rests on that combination of picking up signals from the environment and acting with care and consideration. EQ Europe coaches truly excel in helping you to unleash and enhance this within you. I could have not found a better use for my personal development budget.
