Emotional intelligence (or EI) has been defined as having the capacity to identify & comprehend emotions as well as their impact on attitudes and behaviour. People that possess high levels of emotional intelligence are in tune with both their own emotions and the emotions of others. In the workplace, emotional intelligence is of the utmost importance. Numerous studies have concluded that modern, emotionally savvy managers are more adept at people management and inter-personal interactions than authoritarian managers.
