  • Introduction

    Picture a manager who never loses his/her cool. Especially, in unpredictable times when morals are low and motivations are sinking. Think of someone who you love to talk to, respect their opinion and admire their calm approach to life. This person has high levels of Emotional Intelligence (EI). This individual knows how to manage his/her emotions and regulate the emotions of others. This well-tempered human handles adversity with a smile. People with high EI (managers in particular) can positively engage and involve others by successfully tuning into their behaviors, feelings and thinking. They can build and sustain close relationships and pacify colleagues in difficult situations. Through practical applications of EI, effective human capital management becomes a reality. Hence, EI can be a very useful tool for getting the best out of your team.
