Emotional intelligence (abbreviated as EI, often interchanged with EQ, emotional quotient, which is a term for measurement) is the set of emotional skills that a person uses to navigate their daily lives.
Research has demonstrated that an individual’s EQ or (EI) is often a more accurate predictor of success than their IQ.
How can that be? No matter how intellectually intelligent someone is, their personal and professional success will depend highly on how well they communicate and interact with their colleagues, partners, customers, and employees.
What is emotional intelligence?
Having an Awareness is the only way we can hope to improve. EI assessments and coaching bring awareness to the role emotions play at the workplace.
Leaders and employees at all levels need to understand their strengths and weaknesses. That's why assessment is a great place to start, even for those without any prior knowledge of the concept of emotional intelligence.
Understanding your baseline at the given moment will give you a better idea of what you'd like to work on, and how it will impact your career and personal life.
The EQ-i 2.0 is an assessment that can be run virtually, and combined with coaching to identify areas for improvement and lay out a medium-term plan on building the skills that will help you excel at work.
Emotional intelligence has the power to transform individual leaders and teams.
Emotional Intelligence comprises a range of soft skills that can indeed be improved. Once you are aware of emotions and how they play a role, and you have an idea of which areas you'd like to strengthen, it's a matter of goal setting and practice.

Interpret & understand emotions. Emotions impact our decisions and working relationships.
There's no doubt about the transformation that the pandemic caused. Many organizations have reformed their office and remote work policies and many employees have grown to love the benefits.
However, in many companies, emotions and relationships have taken a backseat in leadership development strategy during this time. Although the mode of communication has changed, productivity and innovation are still based on human relationships. The ability to work together, perceive others' emotions, and regulate one's own emotions is key to business growth. That's where emotional intelligence will help you get ahead.
Just because we aren't working next to people, doesn't mean we should lose sight of relationships.
