Emotional intelligence taps into a fundamental element of human behavior that is distinct from your intellect. It affects how we manage behavior, navigate social complexities, and make personal decisions that achieve positive results. Being successful in today’s workplace, in that sense, depends greatly on our ability to understand and effectively manage emotions. Learn how you can develop this fundamental sense of awareness to enhance your career and leadership trajectory.
