Are you emotionally intelligent? It’s an important question to ask yourself.
Research shows that 41% of hiring managers consider emotional intelligence to be more important than IQ. Plus, 58% of the factors of your success at work can be attributed to emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence involves understanding and managing your emotions.
In a study of 418 leaders living in the Middle East region, it found a very strong relationship between emotional intelligence skills and performance outcomes. If you want to build your professional career whether in the Middle East or anywhere in the world, emotional intelligence is one of the most important capacities to develop.
The study above was conducted by Six Seconds. Six Seconds is a 501(c)3 organization that teaches the skills of emotional intelligence so leaders, team members, educators, children, parents, and change agents make better decisions — decisions that are life sustaining and make places where people can be and do their very best.
