When it comes to happiness and success, emotional intelligence (EQ) matters just as much as intellectual ability (IQ), probably more. Emotional intelligence helps you build stronger relationships, succeed at work, and achieve goals. Certainly in nonprofits, where people are the greatest resource, improving individual emotional intelligence optimizes both individual and organizational effectiveness.
