Emotional Intelligence the new yardstick in the business world (EQ)
New Yardstick for Success in the business world and your life!
When Daniel Goleman published "Emotional Intelligence (EQ): Why it can matter more than IQ" in 1995, using the phrase "the new yardstick for success", this generated an incredible amount of interest in the role that emotional intelligence can play in business, as well as in our daily lives. There were, however, a number of people who were concerned that this was just a new fad!
Firstly, this is not a new concept, although it was only coined in 1990 by Peter Salovey and Jack Mayer. Secondly, sufficient research has now been conducted that proves the importance of emotional intelligence on success in the workplace, marriage, relationships, personal mastery, and physical well-being.
What is emotional intelligence?
It is an array of non-cognitive abilities, competencies and skills that influence ones ability to succeed in coping with the environmental demands and pressures. Emotional intelligence thus refers to the non-cognitive dimensions of intelligence such as personal, social, emotional, innovative, and survival skills.
