Why did we decide to cover the theme of emotional intelligence? Because empathy is typically associated with emotional intelligence as it is related to an individual connecting personal experiences with experiences of the others. At the same time, nowadays the psycologists emphasize strong connection between the emotional intelligence and your employability – studies have proven that people with higher EI have greater mental health, job performance and leadership skills.
