“It takes something more than intelligence to act intelligently.” -Fyodor Dostoyevsky
What is Emotional Intelligence?
Emotional Intelligence (EI) can be defined as a set of emotional and social skills that influence the way we perceive and express ourselves, develop and maintain
social relationships, cope with challenges, and use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way.
Why is EI Important?
While emotional intelligence isn’t the sole predictor of
human performance and development potential, it is
proven to be a key indicator in these areas. Emotional
intelligence is not a static factor – to the contrary, one’s
emotional intelligence changes over time and can be
developed in targeted areas.
Applications of emotional intelligence include:
• Leadership Development
• Organizational Development
• Executive Coaching
• Team Building
• Student Development
