The business impact of emotional intelligence is clear.
As EQ increases, so does business impact as teams become better versed in behaviors that lead to positive outcomes, whether it's creating customer-sensitive brand ambassadors, a more cohesive team, a more articulate and confident sales force, or a more inclusive and diverse workplace where new ideas are welcome and innovation can flourish.
There are 5 pillars of emotional intelligence, according to the experts at BlueEQ, an Advantage Performance thought leader partner and creator of the BlueEQ™ emotional intelligence self-assessment:
- Social perception
- Social effectiveness
Within each are another 5 dimensions comprised of skills that people can practice and perfect.
Unlike IQ, a high EQ can be learned.
