IMAGINE, you could have a skill wherein any given conversation with colleagues, clients, or subordinates–you could be keenly aware of, and even experience, their feelings and thoughts.

Sounds like some X-Men-like psychic superpower, right? Well, what if I told you that anyone could have this uncanny ability and use its strength in the workplace!
Emotional intelligence is the capacity to recognize the impact our feelings have on ourselves, tune into the feelings of those around us, manage our emotions and actions, and interact skillfully with the people around us. Studies have shown that those who lead with Emotional Intelligence are better equipped to inspire and mobilize others towards making a positive impact in the world!
