Intelligence quotient (IQ) measures intelligence and reveals a person’s cognitive ability and logical thinking. Emotional quotient (EQ) reveals a person’s ability to identify, assess and control the emotions of others. Studies show that EQ may have an even stronger influence on company executives’ effectiveness than IQ or technical competence. With every organization’s commitment to efficiency, it’s becoming increasingly vital to learn about EQ.

On May 15 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Profiles Asia Pacific will offer a public seminar on Enhancing Leadership Effectiveness that will educate participants about the effect of a leaders’ EQ on an organization and its human capital. Seminar participants will learn to identify and define different types of intelligence, and investigate research findings on the importance of emotional intelligence. In addition to EQ education, participants will also get a chance to apply their knowledge by identifying different Emotional Intelligence Models and their components, and design action plans for both individuals and organizations.
