Emotionally intelligent leaders are indeed more successful than their less emotionally intelligent peers.

I’m sure you’ve heard a little something about emotional intelligence in the past couple of decades, although its roots go back a lot farther than that.

And one of the greatest benefits of emotional intelligence is that helps leaders create work environments where people at every level are collaborating and aspiring to do their best work.
That is critical in the 21st-century global business world.
