According to psychologist Daniel Goleman, “What having emotional intelligence looks like is that you’re confident, good at working towards your goals, adaptable and flexible. You recover quickly from stress and you’re resilient. Life goes much more smoothly if you have good EQ.”
And unlike our IQ, which typically doesn’t change throughout our life, our EQ can be learned, developed and enhanced. Additionally, research has shown that the higher you move on the organizational chart, the more vitally important EQ becomes. For example, a general on the battle field doesn’t need technical skills about the workings of a tank but he desperately needs to know how to motivate his troops. Likewise a CEO needs to have high EQ to inspire his employees, and to increase profitability. A high EQ empowers you to have a positive influence on those around you, especially in the workplace, and has a direct impact on the bottom line.
And therefore, EQ is a crucial component to a leader’s success.
