Why does EI matter? And why does it matter now?
The way you make people feel has a critical impact on how they engage with you.
Emotional intelligence has a regulatory role that can be paramount in understanding things precisely and achieving effective communication without resorting to confrontations or increasing tensions.
Recent studies by Capgemini and LinkedIn place EI as one of the essential skills for the times we live in and our futures. Work cultures are adapting to fast-paced environments, and as emotional and social beings, we need to recognize and constructively manage emotions within our working cultures.
Emotional intelligence benefits everyone in the workplace.
For individuals, it can improve mental health, relationship satisfaction, career success and overall happiness. In addition, beyond oneself, EI creates a more positive environment in the workplace and makes interactions between colleagues more pleasant and productive.
It also contributes to better stress management and allows people to handle high work demands.
For leaders, having emotional intelligence is a huge advantage since it helps them make better decisions, motivate their teams, solve problems easier, encourage creative thinking, and feel less stressed.
Emotional intelligence coaching can help professionals and leaders have a more positive work experience.
