Recent studies indicate that Emotional Intelligence (EQ) influences behaviour in a wide range of domains including school, community, and the workplace. At the individual level, it is believed to relate to academic achievement, work performance, our ability to communicate effectively, solve everyday problems, build meaningful interpersonal relationships, and even our ability to make moral decisions.
Given that emotional intelligence has the potential to increase our understanding of how individuals behave and adapt to their social environment, it is an important topic for study as an overall part of human behaviour.
Emotional competence refers to the personal and social skills that define how effectively individuals perceive, understand, reason with and manage their own and others’ emotions and feelings. These skills are important at work, because emotions are an inherent part of workplace activities at all levels. There now is a considerable body of research suggesting that a person’s ability to perceive, identify, and manage emotion provides the basis for the kinds of social and emotional competencies that are important for success in almost any job. For example, research has found that the primary causes of derailment in management careers involve deficits in emotional competence. The three primary ones are difficulty in handling change, not being able to work well in a team, and poor interpersonal relations.
