Emotional Intelligence Is On The Rise
Hard times of any kind - financial, familial, or job-related - create more intense and often prolonged negative emotions that ultimately result in stress. For many people, their Emotional Quotient (EQ) skills desert them at precisely the time when they need them the most - under stress. Only those with well-trained EQ skills can effectively weather the storm. This collective stress seems to be having a significant impact on our collective emotional intelligence.
