Emotions affect people twenty-four hours a day regardless of where they find themselves. It goes without saying that emotions have a significant impact on how people behave as individuals and as members of groups.
Emotional intelligence is the intelligence that people have when they are in tune with their emotions and are also aware of what people around them are feeling. People with emotional awareness then use this knowledge as they manage their own behaviours and interact with others.
Research indicates that people with a high degree of emotional intelligence are more likely to be successful. They are more likely to recognize their strengths and weaknesses and focus their energies on projects that are important to them. They also have a knack for engaging others and building relationships that allow them to draw on the abilities of the people around them.
