What Is Emotional Intelligence? > EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE—A WORKING DEFINITION

EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE—A WORKING DEFINITION

At the risk of oversimplifying, emotional intelligence is the dimension of intelligence responsible for our ability to manage ourselves and our relationships with others. Each day, both in our personal and business lives, opportunities and challenges present themselves. It is EQ that enables us to recognize and move toward the opportunity. And it is EQ that enables us to meet even the toughest of life's challenges.

EQ is the distinguishing factor that determines if we make lemonade when life hands us lemons or spend our life stuck in bitterness. EQ is the distinguishing factor that enables us to have wholesome, warm relationships, or cold, distant contacts. EQ is the distinguishing factor between finding and living our life's passions or just putting in time. EQ is the distinguishing factor that draws others to us or repels them. EQ is the distinguishing factor that enables us to work in concert and collaboration with others or to withdraw in dispute.
