How to Improve Emotional Intelligence in Teams
Everybody has heard about intelligence quotient (IQ). Many people have even tried taking tests to discover how intelligent they are. Over the last couple of decades, there has been a increase in awareness of a different index called the emotional quotient (EQ), which is a measure of emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence is the ability to identify, manage and use emotions in one’s daily life. This is underpinned with empathy - the ability to recognise and understand the emotions of others.
Like any other assessments of intelligence, emotional intelligence can be measured but it can change and be developed through application and learning. The concept itself been developed by psychologists – as well as employers - as somone with higher levels of emotional intelligence can make a better choice for a job that requires being a leader or a part of a professional team.
