WHAT IS EQ?

EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE

Also known as EQ or EI, emotional intelligence is where logic and emotion intersect. When we are emotionally intelligent, we do not react on emotion but instead harness their power; we know how to interpret their data and regulate our thoughts and mood to increase our performance, mental clarity, relationship quality, effectiveness at communicating, and reduce our anxiety and fatigue due to burnout and stress.
