Emotional intelligence (EQ) is the combination of intangible traits in each of us that affects how we manage behavior, navigate social complexities, and make personal decisions to achieve positive outcomes. Surprising to some, people with average intelligence quotients outperform those with the highest IQs about seventy percent of the time. Research shows it is EQ that sets leading performers apart from others. The correlation is so strong that ninety percent of top performers have high intelligence emotionally.
Fortunately, your emotional intelligence (unlike your IQ) can be significantly increased. As you practice new emotionally intelligent behaviors, you turn them into habits. In short order, you will find yourself responding to situations with emotional intelligence without even thinking about it.
