DEHR Consulting's one sheet on Emotional Intelligence
Emotional Intelligence (EI) is a learnable, measurable, and scientifically validated skillset. There are different types of intelligence. IQ and EI are not mutually exclusive, but EI is twice as predictive of performance than IQ. EI enables cognitive development and is sometimes called “being smarter with feelings.”
Why we’re different from others teaching/offering training on EI
Once a scientific topic becomes popular, especially a trainable skill, many people see it as simply a business opportunity. We are scientists. We thoroughly understand the science behind EI and how to help others acquire and improve their skillset. With a strong educational background in psychology, our team also knows how people learn.
