“The Head or Heart” Emotional Intelligence: A Critical Skill for Better Decision Making
June 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Research shows that emotional intelligence (EI) enables us to make effective decisions. Cornell University researchers found that individuals with higher EI picked up better on critical bodily signals and used that information to avoid risky decisions. In contrast, those with lower EI often didn’t notice these subtle bodily signals, and when they did pick up on these cues, they misinterpreted them.
All workplaces require decision making and all decisions have both cognitive and emotional components Strong emotions help leaders to make effective decisions. Being emotionally intelligent enables a person to understand the impact that emotions can have on decision making, they can be objective and avoid acting in a rash way when making a decision. A person with high emotional intelligence will demonstrate a calm composure and are pragmatic in their manner. They can focus on solutions and have the ability to separate emotions from the issue.
