Our cognitive intelligence determines our capacity to reason, practice, technical skills and solve intellectual problems. On the other hand, according to research in neuroscience, our behavioural intelligence is what determines not only how we view our situations but how well we interact with others personally and professionally.
Emotional Intelligence coaching is intrinsically linked to performance. Raising this factor gives us the ability to manage our emotions and the emotions of those around us and use them adaptively, even under pressure.
Emotional Intelligence also referred to as EI is being ‘Smarter about Feelings’.
Emotions drive all behaviour and performance, which makes investing in emotional competency development a solid business decision as well a personal one.
The concept of emotional intelligence (EQ) was coined by psychologists Peter Salovey and John Mayer in 1990. It was further researched and popularised by psychologist Daniel Goleman. He released a pathbreaking book, Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More than IQ.
