Emotional Intelligence

What is Emotional Intelligence

Emotional Intelligence (EI) is the ability to recognize, regulate and express one’s emotions effectively while also being able to understand the emotions of others. It’s not about being emotional but being intelligent about your emotions. Sounds too soft for a results-oriented, growth-mindset leader like you? Think again. There are numerous studies that link high EI to high performance.(You’ll find some in our blog HERE.) And unlike IQ, EI can be improved with continual practice. That’s why actions and protocols that enable EI are at the center of our community at EFBC.
