"What matters for success, character, happiness and lifelong achievements is a definite set of emotional skills – your EQ — not just purely cognitive abilities that are measured by conventional IQ tests.” — Daniel Goleman.
While leadership qualities are traditionally associated with intelligence, toughness, determination and vision are required for success, they are insufficient. Truly influential leaders are distinguished by a high degree of Emotional Intelligence, including self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy and social skill.
Emotional intelligence, also called EQ, is the ability to understand and control our emotions. Emotionally intelligent people know how to recognize their negative emotions and reduce the bad impacts on their lives.
