Emotional Intelligence (EI)

Emotional intelligence (EI) refers to an individual’s ability to recognize their own feelings as well as the feelings of others, for motivating themselves, and for managing themselves and their relationships.  These abilities are distinct from traditional academic intelligence and cannot be measured by IQ.   Emotionally intelligent leaders help their organizations to create competitive advantages through their staff using a number of avenues such as:  increased performance, improved motivation and teamwork, enhanced innovation and restored trust.
