Who Cares?
   Schools
       “empathy, perspective taking, rapport, and cooperation” are among
        the competencies the school is looking for in those who apply
        - Jill Fadule, director of admissions, Harvard Business School

   Corporations
       “A 1997 survey of benchmark practices among major corporations,
        done by the American Society for Training and Development,
        found that four out of five companies are trying to promote
        emotional intelligence in their employees through training and
        development, when evaluating performance, and in hiring.”

Product and Services Success
   Innovation
       “market forces appear to be the primary influence on innovation.
        From 60 to 80 percent of important innovations in a large number of
        fields have been in response to market demands and needs.
        - James M. Utterback - MIT

   Success…
       “…the introduction of 224 new electronics products - half successes
        and half failures - [it was] found that the key success factor was the
        development team’s interaction with the customer. Very few
        innovations emerge because someone in the organization says,
        ‘Aha, maybe we can find a user for this technical idea’.”
        - Modesto Marquis - University of Miami

What about IQ?
   Emotional Intelligence comes out on top
       “a study of Harvard graduates in the fields of law, medicine,
        teaching, and business found that scores on entrance exams - a
        surrogate for IQ - had zero or negative correlation with their
        eventual career success.”
        - Daniel Goleman.

Anger? Who, me?
   Be remembered well
       We are most often remembered for our ability, or lack of ability, to
        handle adversity. When we handle it well, we are remembered
        well.
       What kind of person are you when you’re angry? People tend to
        remember that most.




   So, what is Emotional Intelligence?….
