What is Emotional Intelligence?
Emotional Intelligence (EI) is the ability to manage our emotions and actions, and to skilfully interact with those around you. Crucially, these behaviours can be measured and unlike IQ, EI can be developed.
Emotional and Social intelligences enable us to bring out the best in ourselves and others and so produce outstanding organisational performance. People with strengths in emotional and social intelligence understand unspoken emotions and group dynamics. You build influence as you cultivate positive and powerful relationships.
People with deficits in any of the competencies of EI can lack the motivation and planning required to achieve aspirational goals or to lead others effectively.
EI identifies the competencies/behaviours that allow people to deliver results – as individuals and in teams:
- Motivating yourselves and your team members in addressing and resolving conflicts
- Influencing individuals and groups to work co-operatively or collaboratively
- Inspiring a team by developing or mentoring others
