How Is Your Emotional Intelligence Today?

Anita M. Harris has a new article at MSN’s Encarta Training Center, Emotional Intelligence. According to Harris, Richard Boyatzis says,

There was a time when if you were smart and worked hard, you could pretty much expect to get ahead. But in today’s team-oriented companies, emotional intelligence--the ability to access, manage, and make use of your feelings--may be far more important to your ongoing success than intellectual knowledge, or even technical skill.

The article explains more about it and what you can do to improve yours. Interesting reading.

If you’re not yet familiar with the term 'emotional intelligence' here’s an article by the Consortium for Research on Emotional Intelligence in Organizations: Emotional Intelligence: What it is and Why it Matters, by Cary Cherniss, Ph.D.
