It is a widely accepted belief that soft skills make an important difference in how people feel and respond to their boss and senior management. If they feel they are valued, appreciated, and heard, they are engaged and motivated to achieve goals set out by leadership.

An indicator of how well we use our soft skills is our level of Emotional Intelligence. Called “The Other Kind of Smart,” by TalentSmart, a leading authority in the field, Emotional Intelligence is the key indicator of our success in business and as a leader, and, yes, in our happiness. Emotional intelligence is the single best predictor of performance in the workplace and the strongest driver of leadership and personal excellence. Some of us are born with a great deal of emotional intelligence; others are not. Most of us are not aware of how our emotions may be adversely affecting our thinking and our reactions. The good news is that we can learn to increase our emotional intelligence.
