Technical competence alone is insufficient to achieve the highest levels of success. Emotional intelligence is essential for physicians and leaders attempting to cope with an increasingly complex and fast-paced world. But, what is emotional intelligence? How does it apply to healthcare? And, how do we use it to improve performance? This lecture focuses on a large body of scientific work that has been done on emotional intelligence, sometimes referred to as EQ. Emotional intelligence involves specific skills that can be developed over time. Moreover, having a high EQ has been correlated with measurable business results.
