Emotional Intelligence is defined as the capacity to be aware of, control, and express one's emotions, and to handle interpersonal relationships judiciously and empathetically.

Over the past year, EQ has become less important to companies because of the NEED for someone to fill the seat. This is just creating more problems, as less care is invested into uncovering the fit into the organization. 

We need to understand that high performers are taking their time to find the right opportunity. So this is your wake up call to SLOW down!

Now, more than ever, it is critical to cultivate our own emotional intelligence & implement intelligent hiring practices into your organization.
