Five Components of Emotional Intelligence at Work

Recently, I spoke at a significant healthcare organization on the importance of Emotional Intelligence at work. Like so many companies they are facing rapid change and employee burnout.

  • According to the World Economic Forum’s Future of Jobs Report, Emotional Intelligence will be one of the top skillsets to develop and invest in to be successful.
  • 75% of careers are derailed today for reasons related to emotional self-management including interpersonal problems and the inability to handle stress and conflict. –Center for Creative Leadership
