The World Economic Forum’s report on ‘Future of Jobs’ lists ‘Emotional Intelligence’ (EI) in the top 10 skills needed to thrive in the 4th Industrial revolution. Research from Harvard, Stanford, and Carnegie Foundation show that 85–87% of our success accounts from emotional intelligence skills, yet we only pay attention to them 10% of the time. In fact, with two people having same IQ and experience, the one with higher EI would be a more successful leader 90 % of the times. Which one you seek to be?

In this Salon, participants will explore:
* Why EI is such a crucial skill for personal and organizational productivity?
* How can you elevate your EI and cue your success?
