The process of transformation of wisdom (other’s experiences and suggestions in the form of books and quotes etcetera) and knowledge (your experiences associated with the individuals) education, and environment plays a great part in sustainable development in all sectors, for the benefit of society, and the nations – if they cross the international borders. The process utilizes the art and science imbibed in overall management but most important is the managing of human resources.
The management of any project in any field is mostly dependent on management of human resources and communication management.
There are many knowledge areas and processes in the project management and these can be customized according to the need of the project and its management requirements, but human resource management is of prime importance. The selection process of these resources in the past has been and even followed today was /is based on Intelligent Quotient (IQ).
I repeat the definitions of IQ and EI/EQ again as below:
In IQ the cognitive abilities are assessed through vocabulary reading, comprehension and mathematical and reasoning skills and assessment is based on the scores assigned to assess intelligence abilities and this practice exists even in higher educational competitions and is recommended in various private and government organization and also in the international transfers of human resources. (It is based more on objectivity)
In year 1985 emotional intelligence (EI, and also known as Emotional Quotient EQ) was advocated, but ultimately Daniel Goleman in 1995 made efforts for its better understanding and use.
EI/ EQ is individuals ability to identify, understand, evaluate control, and express emotions of self and others and groups. (It is based more on subjectivity) Together IQ and EQ provide success in practically all the fields.
When the kids go to the Play School they have social interactions with others and to remain in the group, they try to aware about their strengths and weakness and the strengths and weakness of other’s and try to remain in the social interaction with some adjustments within the limits of age and environment. This is EI/EQ. As they go to higher classes their ability is judged more because of their scores. Their travel path changes from EI/EQ to more towards IQ and this should be avoided.
More than twenty percent of companies are now measuring EQ/EI in the hiring or production process.
IQ gets you hired- Eq gets you promoted
Research indicates that technical skills account for less than 15% of one’s values in obtaining, keeping or advancing in a job. More than 85% of job success is based on personal conduct and the ability to put other at ease. Almost 100% of education dollars go to teach facts and figures which account for only 15% of success in work!
(An extract from Harvard business operations unit)
EI/EQ helps in the development of individuals, in the development of team and in the development of leadership which ultimately enhances the organizational development
In today’s environment getting the work done at workplace along with living with people in collaborative manner is very necessary and as such IQ need to be supported by EQ/EI for overall success.
We know that that the workforce at work places is appointed at the same time with same qualifications for a particular field.
But why some of them advance in careers leaving the others behind?
Why some are successful, and some are not?
It is not the IQ that matters in such cases, but it is EI/EQ development that matters.
Cognitive intelligence is the ability to understand information, imagine possibilities, use intuition, solve problems, and make decisions.
What Is Emotional Intelligence?
Emotional intelligence is the ability to understand the needs and feelings of oneself and other people, manage one’s feelings, and respond to others in appropriate ways.
The four major skills of EI/EQ model are given in the table below along with the further description
