Leadership: Developing Your Emotional Quotient
Emotional Intelligence (EI) is the ability to be self-aware of how your emotions affect your ability to work with others; control your behaviors when experiencing negative emotions; be aware of other emotions in the room; and respond to the emotional reactions of others.
