We all know about IQ, however there's one more quotient called EQ. It is collaborated with emotionality. People who have a high EQ are kind of magnets for others. You are following such people, listen to them and go for them wherever they go. They are not conflict people – they put away all negative. Moreover, they do have leader's will and you definitely can't manipulate them.
First mention about EQ wasn't so long time ago in 1995 by Daniel Goleman. Moreover, Goleman insists that IQ isn't so important as EQ. The psychologist motivates it in a way that you have to rule your emotions well to be smart. After that, specialists made research which shows that for management activity it is true. Effective administration needs about 85% EQ and only 15% IQ. By developing EQ a leader can work productively under emotionality all over a company and use it effectively.
