Emotional intelligence is the ability to manage your emotions as well as understand and interpret those of other people. Higher levels of emotional intelligence can help you make better decisions and think more rationally.
Ground breaking research by Daniel Goleman redefines intelligence and success. In his best selling book "Emotional Intelligence: Why it can matter more than IQ" he asks does IQ define our destiny? Goleman argues that our view of human intelligence is far too narrow, and that our emotions play a major role in thought decision making and individual success.
