How to add more EQ to your IQ

Listen on:

EQ is your ability to understand and deal with the emotional side of life. Most of us have spent thousands of hours and even hundreds of thousands of dollars at school learning. But how much have you invested in learning, practicing, and applying knowledge around your emotional intelligence?  

Employees with a strong EQ don’t hate their careers. They don’t dread going to work in the morning and they are not constantly anxious about work. They make mistakes but learn and grow from them. They motivate people and have empathy and compassion along the way.
