Emotional Intelligence is such a powerful ability that always attracts success to your doorstep. Having emotional intelligence can save you from a myriad of social problems and stress, especially when it comes to sales. A lack of emotional intelligence is guaranteed to prevent you from establishing a connection with potential clients you may encounter in the field.
Do you have Emotional Intelligence?
What is emotional intelligence? It is the ability to identify and control one’s own emotions, and to recognize rather than react to others’ emotions as well. In short, being aware of one’s emotions and being able to control them, along with having understanding and empathy for others, are signs of emotional intelligence. Emotional Intelligence creates self-control that puts a stop to frustration about how others behave. It keeps the power to maintain peace of mind in one’s own hands rather than putting it in the hands of others. It allows us to respond in uncomfortable situations rather than react.
People with high emotional intelligence are usually better team players, better problem-solvers, and overall better people-persons.
People who have high emotional intelligence are very aware of their own emotions. They know their triggers and are capable of controlling their emotions, even in stressful situations. This is a powerful thing! High emotional intelligence also demands a motivation to understand others’ situations and empathize with them. It’s the ability not making about yourself in order to fully understand another.
