What is Emotional Intelligence (EI)?
EI is the ability to recognize and manage your own emotions and to connect to the emotions of others. Great leaders are able to manage their emotions when there is tension and conflict so they can engage more skillfully. Great leaders know that emotions are infectious – as a leader you have the power to unleash best performance or to sabotage it.
