While emotional intelligence (EI) isn’t always necessary to get ahead in life, the absence of these skills will make managing and leading people more difficult.

Summary

This article by Art Markman, writing for Fast Company, makes the following points:
  • A key element of emotional intelligence is the ability to read how people are feeling.
  • If you are consistently passed over for promotions, it could be that others are noting that you lack EI.
  • People usually need the support of those around them. If you don’t get that support, it could be your lack of EI skills
