7 Reasons Why Emotional Intelligence Is One Of The Fastest-Growing Job Skills
According to the World Economic Forum’s Future of Jobs Report, emotional intelligence will be one of the top 10 job skills in 2020. The awareness that emotional intelligence is an important job skill, in some cases even surpassing technical ability, has been growing in recent years. In a 2011 Career Builder Survey of more than 2,600 hiring managers and human resource professionals, 71% stated they valued emotional intelligence in an employee over IQ; 75% said they were more likely to promote a highly emotionally intelligent worker; and 59% claimed they’d pass up a candidate with a high IQ but low emotional intelligence.
The question then, is why companies are putting such a high premium on emotional intelligence. These are seven of the top reasons why highly emotionally intelligent candidates are so valuable.
