Why is emotional intelligence (EQ) so important?

 Show Interest
In 2011 a survey of over 2,000 hiring managers and HR professionals, found that 71% valued EQ over IQ and 75% said they were more likely to promote a high EQ employee. 

In view of this, if you are in job search mode or seeking a promotion, it seems eminently sensible to work on your EQ.  

There are numerous characteristic behavioural traits of people with a high EQ. Of these traits, one of the most important indicators is the ability to communicate a message both succinctly and with enthusiasm. 

“But,” I hear you say “l just don’t sound enthusiastic!” 

If this is you, think about a time when you were talking to a friend about your favourite hobby, book, holiday, boy band, film, opera - anything that you talk about excitedly. 

Now work with your mentor to master the art of talking about your career and your achievements with the same excitement, passion and enthusiasm. #proteuscareermanagement #enthusiasm #emotionalintelligence #careeradvice
