So we’ve talked a lot in this series about how computers fetch and display data, but how do they make decisions on this data? From spam filters and self-driving cars, to cutting edge medical diagnosis and real-time language translation, there has been an increasing need for our computers to learn from data and apply that knowledge to make predictions and decisions. This is the heart of machine learning which sits inside the more ambitious goal of artificial intelligence. We may be a long way from self-aware computers that think just like us, but with advancements in deep learning and artificial neural networks our computers are becoming more powerful than ever.

Video Summary:
IQ hasn’t been found to be a good predictor of success in life or in business. In fact higher IQ tends to be counter-intuitive to achieving such success. A better predictor of success is Emotional Intelligence or EQ (one’s emotional quotient). Although under-recognized, it plays a pervasive role in our everyday interactive life.

As social animals, humans’ emotions significantly impact our relationships, the very substance of our society. On an individual level, the ability to recognize our own emotions, to distinguish and control them, and to recognize and empathize with the emotions of others are the cornerstones of emotional intelligence. Individuals vary considerably in their abilities on these rather distinct measures, typically being stronger in one or two than in the others.

Identifying opportunities for improvement in emotional intelligence opens a pathway to improved relationships and greater success. Education to sharpen the skills involved in emotional intelligence via books, videos, and life coaching, as well as interpersonal practice offers promise for growth to every person who wants to increase their EQ and their success in business and personal relationships.

In today’s 24/7/365 globalized workplace, emotional climates are constantly being brought to the surface as we cross cultures, languages and time zones on a daily basis. Learning to effectively manage our emotions is no longer a ‘nice to have’ but a ‘need to know how’. With reference to recent research in neuroscience, Maureen Bridget Rabotin shares some proven techniques on how to better handle your emotions in challenging times.

Emotional intelligence and leadership go hand in hand in many ways. If you want to become an effective leader, then you need to understand that emotional intelligence can help you in leaps and bounds.

These days, becoming a leader is not just about being the best in your field. More importantly, it is about knowing how to handle people as well as yourself.

Find out the correlation between emotional intelligence and leadership below.

Sensitivity Is Key.

By developing your EI, you are also developing your ability to sense what mood your team members are in.

They dont have to tell you a single thing, but a twitch of an eyebrow or a sudden change in attitude already alerts you to the fact that something is going on.

By knowing these small things, you are given the ability to predict how things might play out. As a leader, this is a very important skill to have.

Knowing When To Act.

Another benefit of combining emotional intelligence and leadership is that you get to know when to do something or when to stay back.

Timing is crucial. As a leader, it becomes your responsibility to know when to act. Its tough, but with your already existing leadership skills and your emotional intelligence, you will soon perfect it.

Lets say you are hoping to introduce a new member into your group. For some reason, the idea of adding someone to your unit does not sit well with your team. Equipped with high EI, youll now be able to deduce when the best time is to do this.

Making The Right Decisions.

When emotional intelligence and leadership fuse together, youll be guided to make the right decisions. Facts and figures may sway your decision; but ultimately, it is how you feel about something that decides things for you.

In fact, when you are being interviewed for a job by the head of the HR, youll be asked questions that gauge the kind of principles and morals you hold.

Interviewers want to know how high your level of emotional intelligence is. Will you panic when you meet a crisis? Will you be a good leader or will you be better as a follower?

Emotional intelligence and leadership cannot be separated. You can look at these two concepts on their own; but when combined, these two hold a lot of important lessons for any aspiring leader. Dont be so quick to disregard emotional intelligence because one day, it can be the ladder to your success!
