A startling finding by researcers and scientists is that an individuals Success in life is only 20% a function of IQ, actually 80% of the reasons for success is other forces .. which majorly consist of EQ.
Every strong EMOTION has at its root an impulse to action; managing those impulses is basic to emotional intelligence.
Emotional Intelligence (EI) is the capacity to acquire and apply the information of emotional nature to feel and respond emotionally. It is the ability to experience and productively manage emotions. EQ ( Emotional Quotient) is the measure of EI.
Be it a teacher or a manager at work, an Emotionally competent individual will definitly excell in life… professionally as well as personally …
tomorrow I shall write on the impact & need of EQ for our school teachers ..
