Building Emotional Intelligence
Emotional intelligence (EI) is the capacity to identify, understand, and work with one’s own emotions and those of others. Its benefits are far reaching – and it can be learned and strengthened.
At work, those with high EI are more engaged and have improved performance, are perceived in a better light by peers, and demonstrate superior leadership skills. Personal benefits include greater well-being, better mental health, greater stress tolerance and resilience, and greater leadership potential. It also extends to building relationships. It helps us act more cooperatively, with a stronger ability to manage and resolve conflict.
