|As an organizational development professional, you required excellent skills to get you to where you are now in your professional career. But if you are to progress to the next level in your career or you want to be a more effective leader, what will that require? We now have over 3 decades of research on emotional intelligence (EI).

What exactly is EI/EQ and why is it so important for professionals who work with organizations?
