Emotional Intelligence & Your Career – How EQ is the New IQ

Contrary to popular opinion – Knowledge is NOT Power….

You must self-manage & optimise your personal strengths to separate you from the crowd

EQ (also referred to as Emotional Intelligence) refers to a measurement of emotional intelligence. The good news is that unlike IQ, which tends to be constant, EQ can be intentionally raised. You can increase your EQ, communication skills and confidence levels.

Your level of EQ (or EI) impacts your job the more you work with people.  Studies have shown that EQ can have as much as 12x an impact on productivity for Doctors, Consultants, and Sales People.

Your level of EQ is measured by your understanding of five core areas.

  1. Self Awareness: (The ability to recognize and understand your moods, emotions, and drives, as well as their effect on others)
  2. Self Regulation:(The ability to control or redirect disruptive impulses and moods and the propensity to suspend judgement and think before acting)
  3. Motivation:(A passion to work for reasons that go beyond money or status and a propensity to pursue goals with energy and persistence)
  4. Empathy:(The ability to understand the emotional makeup of other people)
  5. Social Skills: (A proficiency in managing relationships and building networks)

Confidence is built around mastery. If you don’t feel confident about an issue or area in your life it is up to you to learn about it and to make the change. Immerse yourself in learning everything you can about that particular challenge and the topics surrounding it.

Soft skills can make or break a career.  Knowing how to use them effectively will help you to land that new job; get the promotion you dream about; help you to communicate clearly and be heard, but ultimately, these skills will make you happier. You will feel more in control of your life; be able to maintain stability when the going gets tough and you will be more confident to take on challenges.
