Travis Bradberry, bestselling coauthor of Emotional Intelligence 2.0, defines Emotional Intelligence (EQ) as “the other kind of smart…the ‘something’ in each of us that is a bit intangible”.
While IQ as a measure of cognitive intelligence is certainly a factor in career fulfillment, EQ is the “something” that affects how we perceive and manage our emotions, behaviors and social interactions. And it’s the essential “something” that can make all the difference between average and top performers in the workplace.
We’re all born with a built-in level of EQ but, unlike cognitive intelligence which is fairly static over our lives, with targeted focus we can actually increase our Emotional Intelligence and grow its positive impact.
An executive coach can help you assess your EQ capabilities and determine areas where focus will create significant positive impact for you.
