Emotional intelligent (EI) managers have good people skills to succeed in their personal and business lives. EI rather than IQ is a better predictor of success, and a combination of both is needed for success in the workplace. IQ is a good predictor of the necessary general education and technical skills. However, many people with high IQ fail to get promoted because they lack people skills. While high IQ will get you the job, it is more important for success to have emotional intelligence, to control emotions, read the moods of people, persist despite adversity, and get along with others.
