Emotional intelligence enhance your creativity and its a unique way to manage your emotions smartly .


What is Emotional Intelligence?

“Emotional Intelligence is your ability to recognize and understand emotions in yourself and others, and your ability to use this awareness to manage your behavior and relationship.”

Yes, emotions actually play a very vital role in your life and also it may affect your colleagues as well.

As Carl W. Buehner said,

“They may forget what you said, but they will never forget how you made them feel.”

EQ is to control your mind and your body action against anything which might hurt you or it causes distraction in your routine, it might create a fuss in your professional life. No doubt, you are smart enough, you have enough knowledge and understanding about the project you are working on, you can lead or master all the pros and cons of your project but at the same time, you face so many other challenges which can create anger and frustration causing hurdles in your success.

EQ is important to understand how to make yourself cool and calm in all kind of difficult situation when sometimes you manage to control your failure,

Your anger, your feelings, your temperament and when you deal with your team members to handle their mood, their problems, their issues, their ego, there conflicts among them, this is actually mastery on emotional intelligence. Study has been shown mostly higher performer have a high level of EQ

What is the difference between IQ and EQ?

There is an absolute correlation between IQ and EQ. Your success and good outcome result is not only based on your high level of IQ, It is directly correlated with emotional Intelligence.

Study of EQ skills is as important as any other technical skill. Everywhere in your life be at your workplace or your personal life

You have to work with team members, where you face disagreement and disapproval, instead of reacting on differences, by using SELF-MANAGEMENT you need to clear all the conflicts effectively, showing empathy, caring attitude and by managing other’s feelings with the sensitivity you can achieve a high level of EQ.

Self-awareness and Social- awareness are a real factor of EQ, You cannot maintain good repport with your colleagues or team member without listening to them and without providing them a healthy work environment with self-recognition you can lead and get success in your business.


For being an intellectual person, you need to understand the basic requirement of emotional intelligence. This is a skill you can learn or master on this intelligence, how to deal with your anger, what to say when to say, what is the right way to speak, how you can mold or transform yourself and your mind with the current situation. A positive approach and relaxed attitude can be a great tool for mastery of this emotional intelligence.

You can learn how to coach and supervise your brain; I would add here Benjamin Franklin;

“Whatever is begun in anger, ends in shame .”

I believe, the one who does not stop himself from speaking ill, he must be ended up with frustration and anxiety.

The ability to create a balance between self-management and relationship-management basically is a key to success because it is very important how you respond to stressful situations or events for instance if you react or lose your cool, maybe you slow down your process of success. Emotionally strong people have the gut to face challenges, stressful situations, and ups and downs in their personal and professional life but on the other hand, if you do not have an awareness of emotional skill then you are going to face the real challenge in your life.

How to Improve Your Emotional Intelligence...

The study of emotional intelligence is equally important as the study of other subjects .it’s a science and the perfect combination of smart skills. You can increase your performance through emotional intelligence at the workplace. These are the following steps;

  1. Observe how you react to people. ...
  2. Look at your work environment. ...
  3. Do a self-evaluation. ...
  4. Examine how you react to stressful situations. ...
  5. Take responsibility for your actions. ...
  6. Examine how your actions will affect others – before you take those actions.

Why do I need to improve emotional Intelligence?

To improve your life you need to work on your EQ. It’s definitely more important than IQ. You can measure IQ but EQ can be observed .it helps you to know yourself, to recognize your behavior and others as well. You learn to appreciate and acknowledge other’s efforts. You can get confidence and feeling of accomplishment, it helps us to connect with our surrounding, to reduce stress level at our workplace.

I would add here a beautiful quote from Helen Keller,

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.”
