Developing Emotional Effectiveness

Would it surprise you to learn that a recent survey of American businesses revealed that more than half of employees lacked the motivation to continue learning and improve their job skills?  Or, that 40% were unable or unwilling to work cooperatively with fellow employees?  And, that just 19% of those applying for entry-level positions have the needed self-discipline to perform responsibly?  These are all key components of emotional intelligence.

Emotional intelligence, once viewed as fluff and unnecessary, is now one of the most frequently identified components for business success.  Unlike inherited intelligence, emotional intelligence can be learned with no set developmental limits.  When individuals understand and manage themselves well, the net effect is improved contentment and increased productivity.
