Professional Development Series - Emotional Quotient (EQ)

The Foundation of Decision-Making: In the workforce today, businesses are now structured in a way that almost everyone has some level of decisionmaking ability. Whether the decisions are big or small, they have a direct impact on how successful, efficient and effective individuals are on the job.  As a result, it is becoming more and more importantfor employees to focus on and improve their decisionmaking abilities. This may seem as simple as learning fromour mistakes, but it really starts at a much deeper level.  Making better decisions starts with understanding your own Emotional Quotient (EQ).

What is Emotional Quotient?  While it is often misunderstood as intelligence quotient (IQ), Emotional Quotient is different because instead of measuring your general intelligence, it measures your emotional intelligence. Emotional Quotient is the measure of one's ability to sense, understand and effectively apply the power and acumen of emotions to facilitate high levels of collaboration and productivity. In the business environment, Emotional Quotient is important because it helps you leverage your awareness of emotions for effectiveness in the workplace.

At any level, the PDS Emotional Quotient version will empower you to understand your own EQ so you can avoid making high-risk decisions without understanding how your emotions are influencing your choice. Instead you can make educated decision and take emotionally-intelligent actions while free of being hijacked by your emotions.
