Emotional Intelligence is the ability to recognize, understand and express your
emotions in ways that are respectful of self and others. It is a balance between
the human aspects of emotion and cognition that result in better decisions and a
healthier life. Emotional Intelligence in a phrase coined in 1990 by Salovey,
Mayer and Caruso about the field of research on the emotions.
From “Executive EQ” by Robert Cooper, Ph.D. & Ayman Sawaf
Emotional Intelligence 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 [like IQ except with emotions] motivates us to pursue our unique potential and purpose and activates our innermost values and aspirations, transforming them from things we think about to what we live.
