Emotional Intelligence Predicts Job Success

The Emotional Intelligence training workshop in San Jose, CA, teaches the critical skills for personal and professional success. Approximately 90% of all high performers in the work place have high emotional intelligence (also known as EI or EQ). Research shows that although IQ and a strong resume may get you the job interview, those with high EQ are more successful in a team and organization over the long-term.

Emotional Intelligence is more important for job success than IQ, experience, or technical ability for any job at any level in the organization. Studies across industries show that emotional intelligence predicts job performance 2 to 1 over any other job competency.

What is Emotional Intelligence?

Emotional intelligence is about what we say and do each day. EI is the ability to recognize, understand, and manage your emotions and the emotions of others effectively. It affects how we manage behavior, work through social complexities, handle stress, and make personal decisions that achieve positive outcomes in both our personal and professional lives.

Employers Value EQ Over IQ

Why do many well-intended, hard-working people stay as low functioning people who don’t lead well or relate effectively with their teammates? The answer is emotional intelligence. Employers know the contribution and value people with high EI bring to their organization. People with higher EQ are better able to remain calm under pressure, resolve conflict effectively, and demonstrate empathy toward their coworkers.

The 4 Core Emotional Intelligence Skills

Like four pieces of a puzzle, all four Emotional Intelligence skills are interconnected with each other. First made popular by Daniel Goldman, EQ consists of personal and social competence in four core areas: (1) Self-Awareness, (2) Self-Management, (3) Social Awareness, and (4) Social  Management.

First two EQ competencies focus on YOU.

  1. Self-Awareness is your ability to accurately perceive your own strengths, limitations, and emotions and be able to monitor them in real time. This includes staying aware of how you respond in challenging situations and with difficult people. Self-awareness displays both a healthy self-confidence and a humility that is open to feedback and the perspectives of others.
  2. Self-Management is you ability to act upon and effectively manage your self-awareness. You can only manage what you can see. Self-management demonstrates emotional self-control. It also takes initiative to develop  your strengths, manage your weaknesses, handle stress, display healthy assertiveness and positively direct your behavior and emotional reactions in challenging situations and people.

Second two EQ competencies focus on OTHERS.

  1. Social-Awareness is your ability to accurately connect with individuals through empathy. Many times this means being able to read what people are feeling behind what they are saying (or not saying) even though you might not think or feel the same way they do. It’s understanding what’s not being said as much as what is being said. This skill helps us connect with people and build trust in our relationships. Social Awareness allows us to be able to read the “emotional mood of the room.” It is an organizational awareness.
  2. Social Management is your ability to use your own emotional awareness (personal and social) to effectively manage relational interactions with others successfully. Strong social management allows us to relate with others in stressful situations but with a non-anxious presence. Skills like managing difficult conversations, using clear and direct communication, providing timely and constructive feedback and genuine encouragement, which create a individual style of inspirational leadership.
