It Is Time to Focus on Emotional Intelligence

December 9 2016 - Businesses and industries have been focusing on recruiting smart and intelligent workers and building strong teams based on competence and skills for many years. Over the past couple of years, however, that focus has shifted towards emotional intelligence or EI. More than half of today's HR specialists and hiring managers look for good emotional intelligence from potential candidates for all the right reasons. Online MBA programs and other courses are also shifting towards developing students' EI better.

Potential employees with good EI can be expected to work better under pressure. They will also be able to handle criticism better, deal with problems and find suitable solutions more effectively and generally perform really well in various situations. All of these advantages are benefiting companies, especially in today's competitive market.
