What is Emotional Intelligence?

According to two of the leading researchers on the subject, Peter Salovey and John. D. Mayer, Emotional Intelligence is: “the ability to monitor one’s own and other people’s emotions, to discriminate between them and to use this information to guide one’s thinking and behaviour.”


Can Emotional Intelligence be developed or improved?

Yes, the wonderful aspect of Emotional Intelligence is that it is not fixed. We can work on developing it throughout our lives and the benefits are numerous. The qualities of Emotional Intelligence are now highly recognized as a major strength. It is so important that the United Nations recently had a conference on the topic.
