5 Components of emotional intelligence

6 Identifying emotions The ability to accurately recognize how you and those around you are feeling

7 Using emotions The ability to use emotions to actually help thinking

10 In general, EQ involves: Being aware of and managing your emotions Having good interpersonal skills Being adaptable Managing stress well; and Having a positive general mood

15 What difference does EQ make at work?

16 U.S. Air Force Best recruiters scored highest on EQ competencies of Assertiveness, Empathy, Happiness and Emotional Self Awareness. Selecting recruiters based on this led to a $3M savings

17 Experienced partners at a multi-national consulting firm Those that scored above median on 9 of 20 EQ competencies Delivered $1.2 M more profit (139% gain)

18 300 top-level executives from 15 global companies Six competencies distinguished stars from average performers Influence, Team Leadership, Organizational Awareness, Self-Confidence, Achievement, Drive and Leadership

19 Research in over 200 companies and organizations worldwide In moderately complex jobs (sales clerk, mechanic), top performer is 12 times more productive than average performer

20 In most complex jobs (insurance salesperson, account managers), top performer is 127% more productive than average performer

21 1/3 of this difference is due to technical skill and cognitive ability

22 The remaining 2/3 is due to EQ

23 National insurance company Insurance sales agents weak in EQ competencies of self-confidence, initiative, and leadership sold policies averaging $54,000

24 Those strong in at least 5 of 8 EQ competencies sold policies worth $114,000
