What is the one thing that 90% of high performers take time to develop? It is also the ONE thing that contributes to 58% of today’s job performance ratings and it’s so critical that people with this ONE thing make $29,000 more than their peers – and that is no joke!
It’s something called Emotional Intelligence or EQ. A person with Emotional Intelligence can live with ‘grace under fire’ meaning they can be cool and collected when others around them are angry and upset. These people with high EQ because they handle stress better and have more awareness can stop, think and look at all options in any situation and come up with better solutions and do so with calmness.
“Emotional Intelligence is the subset of social intelligence that involves the ability to monitor one’s own and other’s feelings and emotions to discriminate among them and to use this information to guide one’s thinking and action.” Peter Salovey and John D. Mayer
