Emotional Intelligence - It's Not What You Think!

How are you feeling today?

Carry your emotions on your sleeve

Defining emotional intelligence:

The ability to sense, understand, and effectively apply the power and acumen of emotions to facilitate higher levels of collaboration and productivity.

EQ vs. IQ – IQ is what we use to measure our intelligence. Everyone has a score and it ranges some higher, some lower. Average score of 100.

  • EQ is very different than IQ.

  • IQ is only responsible for about 10 to 25% of performance / productivity.

  • 90% of the difference between average and superior performers is EQ

  • Allows you to interact with others better.

  • IQ doesn’t change much but the skills for raising EQ can be learned.

  • You can learn the skills to raise your EQ. (Good judgments, decision making, etc.)

  • It is how we make decisions and how / what we decide to do.
