Emotional Intelligence Keynote Presentation
Emotional Intelligence (EI, EQ, or EQi) is your ability to perceive and understand emotions in yourself and other people. It is your ability to use this awareness to manage your behavior and relationships with others.
Today, more than ever, in the digital workplace, people who possess strong people skills will be a valuable asset in any organization.
EQ Is More Important Than IQ
Research indicates that approximately 90% of all top professionals have high Emotional Intelligence.
EQ is shown to be more critical for job performance than IQ, experience, or technical aptitude for any job at any level in an organization. Studies across industry sectors show that EQ is the strongest indicator to predict superior job performance and leadership ability over any other competency.
EQ is a Learned Skill
Emotional Intelligence is the most essential skill we possess. EQ shows up each day in what we do, what we say, and how we interact and relate with others. The good news is EQ is a set of learned skills and behaviors and can be improved through awareness, training, and practicing new strategies.
Emotional Intelligence Model: EQiAlive™
Emotional Intelligence was first introduced in the 1980s and was made popular in the 1990s by Daniel Goleman. Several different EQ models have since emerged and are in use. The EQiAlive™ model is a research-based, reliable measure of emotional and social intelligence. It blends the best of the three most prominent EQ and EI models in use today into one, all-encompassing model–EQiAlive™
The 4 Core Emotional Intelligence Themes
Like four pieces of a puzzle, all four Emotional Intelligence themes are interconnected with each other and create a whole picture when put together. The four areas are (1) Self-Awareness, (2) Self-Management, (3) Social Awareness, and (4) Social Management. These measure competencies around multiple meta-factors that affect day-to-day work functions and leadership effectiveness.
