EQ in the Workplace
According to the World Economic Forum, by 2020, the top ten employment skills will be emotional intelligence skills. “Overall, social skills— such as persuasion, emotional intelligence and teaching others—will be in higher demand across industries than narrow technical skills, such as programming or equipment operation and control. In essence, technical skills will need to be supplemented with strong social and collaboration skills.”
Emotional intelligence, or EQ, refers to the ability to perceive, understand and manage our own feelings and emotions. EQ skills are critical for leadership, team effectiveness, work performance, influence, work/life balance and wellbeing.
