Emotional intelligence (EI) has become a hot topic and as a manager, if you can master the art of emotional intelligence, your leadership and management skills will truly flourish.
Some say that mindfulness is the foundation of emotional intelligence. According to U-Cal Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center, mindfulness is about “maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and the surrounding environment.”
People with a high degree of emotional intelligence know what they’re feeling and are also, in tune with the feelings of those around them. They understand what their emotions mean and can control how it affects others.
