Friday Unwind – The strongest predictor of success = EQ

18 Aug

“IQ only explains 20% of what we do. Emotional intelligence explains ~60% of people’s performance…”

Dr. Travis Bradberry gave one of the most powerful talks at last week’s 2016 Global Leadership Summit…and also one of the most research based as well.

This brief talk is filled solid statistics and examples that should help more than prove why we need to focus on emotional intelligence in hiring, promoting, and developing leaders.

For those interested in learning more or building yours, Dr. Bradberry related that the four key skills of EQ are:

  • Self awareness
  • Self management
  • Social awareness
  • Relationship management

“90% of top performers are high in EQ.”

all the best, kevin
