What is Emotional Intelligence (EI)?

"There was a time when I thought that brains were everything. That view has dimmed recently. I think brains are important, but now I also look for good team builders, good communicators, courageous people who don't get stuck with an idea. You need people who are more nimble, who have the ability to lead organizations in changing and tumultuous times comfortably, without panicking."

Larry Bossidy
Chairman & CEO, Allied Signal, Inc.
