Why Emotional Intelligence (EQ) today? It was one of the topics during our IP-Sprint (for Innovation & Planning, Learning, Training and knowledge transfer) last week and I am thinking about picking it up for our team building activity closing the PI Planning next week Monday. We have our company wide #Spirit-Day for personal development and learning tomorrow, and I will use it to prepare some more details for the EQ-session. Preparing a learning experience for the team is also a learning experience for me --> learning by doing.

“In a study of skills that distinguish star performers in every field from entry-level jobs to executive positions, the single most important factor was not IQ, advanced degrees, or technical experience, it was EQ.  Of the competencies required for excellent in performance in the job studies, 67% were emotional competencies.” — Daniel Goleman, taken from The Best Emotional Intelligence Quotes of All Time
