Impact statement

Emotional intelligence (EQ) is the ability to recognize and regulate emotions effectively. In 1990, psychology professors Peter Salovey and John D. Mayer established the theory of EQ. In his book Emotional Intelligence, renowned author Daniel Goleman explains the five components of EQ:

  • Awareness of emotions and noticing them as they occur
  • Handling emotions with poise and demonstrating the ability to self-soothe and overcome obstacles
  • Self-motivation and harnessing emotions to achieve high performance
  • Empathy towards others and the capacity to relate to their feelings
  • Social competence in social interactions and leadership positions– necessary for healthy interpersonal relationships


Building a workforce of sound employees and managers who appreciate their self-worth and that of others contributes to positivity in the workplace. EQ lays the groundwork for employees to flourish and build strong interpersonal relationships, empowering them to create a more meaningful and happier work culture.
