Emotional Intelligence as a Leadership Skill
We all want to be successful in life. We want to move forward in our careers, and want to move up in the so called 'corporate foodchain'. However, most people make the mistake of thinking that it is merely a matter of skill and competence. This is not true. While yes, skill does matter in the workplace, it does not affect your career as much as you think.
Being skilled at your job certainly helps you get that promotion, or that job raise or anything else you aspire for. The part where it gets tricky is the fact that being skilled alone may not help you. You need to develop on some other key areas in order to truly succeed at your career.
