“Emotional intelligence” refers to a set of competencies that support our ability to manage ourselves and our relationships with other people. People with strong EI are able to understand other people and the dynamics of an organization, and influence events to achieve their goals and the goals of the company. They have strong interpersonal relationship skills, can adapt to rapidly changing environments, and maintain balance during high stress situations.
