When I first took an Emotional Intelligence course (EQ) I learned a great deal about our EQ (Emotional Quotient) and that it is actually more important than your IQ. Emotional Intelligence is the capacity to be aware of, control, and express one's emotions, and to handle interpersonal relationships judiciously and empathetically.
You can only control YOU not others.
Leaders have higher EQ's than others
Your Emotional Intelligence is more important for your success as a leader than your IQ.
