Emotional Intelligence: Another Kind of Smart — The Big Idea

Emotional intelligence (EI, EQ, or EQi) is your ability to perceive and understand emotions in yourself and other people and your ability to use this awareness to manage your behavior and relationships with others.

Emotional intelligence is one of the essential skills 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.

EQ is More Important Than IQ

Research indicates that approximately 90% of all top professionals have high emotional intelligence. EQ is 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.

Today, more than ever, in the technology-savvy workplace, people who possess strong “soft skills” or “people skills” will continue to be a stand-out asset in any organization. These emotionally intelligent people help create team cohesiveness and collaboration among their colleagues.

Four Drivers Behind Emotional Intelligence

Like four pieces of a puzzle, all four emotional intelligence themes are interconnected with each other and create a whole picture when put together. All four function in concert.

Often, when learning about EQ, it is helpful to deconstruct the four central areas to assess and provide helpful strategies to grow. (Similar to the idea in goal setting of breaking down big goals into more manageable SMART goals).

The four central areas in most EQ models are some form of (1) Self-Awareness, (2) Self-Management, (3) Social Awareness, and (4) Social Management.

These competencies and behaviors are assessed around multiple meta-factors that affect day-to-day work functions and leadership effectiveness. Coaching strategies are offered for improvement.
