Emotional Intelligence (EQ) and its' Value to Human Resources:

EQ is the ability to sense, understand and effectively apply the power and acumen of emotions as a source of human energy, information and influence. EQ helps us understand how and why we react and respond to certain events in the organisation. It also helps us to appreciate that our daily encounters are shaped not just by our rational judgment and our personal history but are largely influenced by our perceptions and expectations.

Understanding Emotional Intelligence helps us to respond appropriately to feelings in response to criticisms and motivation. The high EQ individual demonstrates creativity and other abilities to pursue goals with vision, perseverance and energy. It is Emotional Intelligence that motivates us to pursue our innermost values and aspirations, transforming them from things we think about to what we live.

Basic components of Emotional Intelligence:

Self-Awareness which is the ability of an individual to recognise and understand one's moods, emotions and drives as well as their impact on others.

Self-Regulation or the ability to control or redirect impulses and moods as well as the ability to suspend judgment so as to think before acting.

Empathy or the ability to understand the emotional makeup of other people and skill in responding according to their emotional reactions.

Interpersonal skills which indicate the individual's proficiency in managing relationships and building networks. Interpersonal skills also involve the ability to find common ground and build rapport.
