  • Emotional Intelligence (EI) Matters
  • EI is the hidden advantage
  • EI is one of the predictors of job performance
  • EI Improves both productivity and psychological well-being in the workplace
  • EI is the most crucial determinant of success in the workplace
  • EI is the ability of a person to use emotions as a guiding tool for managerial effectiveness and leader’s excellence

Multinational corporations and giant industrial groups are increasingly realizing that EI plays a dominant role in enhancing corporate performance. (Goleman, D. 1995, 1998, 2001, 2006).

Emotionally intelligent organizations have employee who are:

  • Motivated, Productive, Efficient, aligned with the business and committed;
  • Effective, confident, likable, happy and rewarded

The workplace has become the field of competition, demands, pressures, interpersonal difficulties, and simply to put roller coaster ride. Workplace challenges are self- created or experienced by others. If one wants to succeed one must have the ability to respond positively to such challenges. Otherwise, it may lead to emotional disturbances in the form of frustration, anger, anxiety etc., which in turn affect individual productivity.
