Boost Your Performance at Work With Emotional Intelligence

There is a growing body of research that suggests emotional intelligence (EI) can be a powerful predictor of success in the workplace. Emotionally intelligent employees are able to effectively manage their own emotions, as well as the emotions of others. This can lead to increased productivity, improved communication and teamwork, and reduced stress levels in the workplace.While some people are naturally more emotionally intelligent than others, there are things that everyone can do to improve their EI.

For example, learning to become more aware of your own emotions, and understanding how they affect your thoughts and behaviours, is a key step in managing them effectively. Developing empathy – the ability to see things from another person’s perspective – is also important for managing relationships at work. And finally, practicing good stress management techniques can help you to stay calm and focused when things get tough.

If you want to boost your career prospects and improve your performance at work, developing your emotional intelligence is a great place to start.
