Emotional Intelligence is one of the best predictors of personal and professional success. In fact, research by the Institute for Health and Human Potential shows that EI accounts for 85-90% of exceptional performance.
We also know that the demand for talent with well-developed EI skills will continue to grow. Global Consulting firm, The McKinsey Group states that between now and 2030, the need for social and emotional skills will outpace the need for cognitive skills.
