That’s the best part about EQ – we all have it. We’re all aware that some things come easier to us, and other areas are where we struggle. We all know – for the most part – that there are ways we can improve our EQ. That’s the other great part – it’s something that we can actually develop. It’s not like IQ, where you pretty much have the brains you have. With EQ, you can work to develop and strengthen areas that are important for you.
EQ doesn’t just apply to leaders – it benefits everyone in a workplace. Qualities like Interpersonal Relationships, Flexibility, and Problem Solving are beneficial for individual contributors as well. In fact, if you start developing your EQ before you move into a leadership role, you’ll have a much greater chance for success.
