7 Traits To Emotional Intelligence

According to research, high performers typically have high emotional intelligence (EQ). Furthermore, your EQ has a more significant overall positive influence as you advance in an organization. As a result, developing your EQ is essential if you want to succeed, move up the corporate ladder, and contribute to your organization as a true team player. Moreover, it’s a legal requirement. Therefore, understanding your “seven selves” is critical for determining your current EQ level and what you can do to improve it.
