“Emotional hijacks aren’t pleasant, but they’re inevitable. The question is: What are you going to do with them? With the right strategy, you can make them work for you, instead of against you.“
-Justin Bariso, EQ Applied
In order to stay employed in today’s workplace, you must understand your level of emotional intelligence. Justin Bariso in his book EQ Applied defines emotional intelligence as, “the ability to make emotions work for you, instead of against you.” If you have a high level of emotional ability you will be valued as an employee and leader in your organization and this will help increase your likelihood of being considered for promotions and special projects.
Harvey Deutschendorf of Fast Company said, “once someone gets promoted, technical skills become less necessary, and interpersonal ones become more critical in their workplace.” Emotional Intelligence is one of the most important factors that employers use to decide if they will hire or promote you, and that is why iMar Learning Solutions is here to help you improve in this area by focusing on leadership development, creative problem solving, analytical thinking, collaboration, and emotional intelligence.
