Why Do Employers Value EI More Than IQ?

December 21 2016 - There are many ways to boost your career and increase your income. One of those ways is by improving your emotional intelligence. According to studies by the University of Maryland and the Online Master in Business Administration program, hiring managers and HR specialists now value emotional intelligence more than IQ. Showing a high level of emotional IQ is just what you need to land that managerial position you have always wanted.

Employers value emotional IQ more because people with high emotional intelligence are much, much better at understanding emotions in the people they lead. This means they are better able to resolve conflicts, work under pressure and manage stress. Those with high EI are also better at leading by example and making cool, calculated business decisions.

The same studies also conclude that high emotional intelligence can help you be a better business owner in general.
