Emotional Intelligence: The Key To Successful Leadership Infographic

Conventional wisdom holds that business success is a simple product of hard skills, clear thinking, and bold risk-taking.

Recent research suggests that emotional intelligence-sometimes derided as "soft"-is a key ingredient in a leader's effectiveness and the success of a project or business. By seeking out employees with high emotional intelligence, businesses can position themselves to succeed in today's economy.

Emotional Intelligence accounted for 58 % of success in jobs, by far the strongest predictor of success when tested alongside 33 other workplace skills.
