Emotional intelligence is the ability to understand, use and manage your own emotions in positive ways to relieve stress, communicate effectively, empathise with others, overcome challenges and defuse conflict.
Emotional Intelligence is increasingly relevant to organisations and developing people.
The Emotional Intelligence principles provide a new way to understand and assess people’s behaviours, management styles, attitudes, interpersonal skills, and potential.
