Emotional Intelligence - Better Predictor of Success then IQ
radha bhagirathee, Student (University), United States

Studies have shown that there is a direct co-relation between emotional intelligence and success in real life. A high IQ is not necessarily a predictor of success.

Implementation of Emotional Intelligence
Steven Coleman, Manager, United States
I agree that an average IQ and high EQ equals success. In considering this post, I believe that relationship management and self management are two critical elements for successful leaders. In analyzing my intelligence, I too rate myself as a person with an average IQ, however, my ability to empathize and understand my weaknesses in the area of self management has been extremely rewarding and the cornerstone of my success. In summary, many of our leaders believe their education from many of the so-called prestigious schools indicates that implementation of emotional intelligence is less than adequate.

Average Intelligence Does Good
Marc Tremblay, Manager, Canada
In my last year at a Canadian military college, my superior officer said that he would rate me as an officer of average intelligence. I was young and somewhat hurt at the time. I got out of the military some years later and, with a lot of work and persistence, I have been going very well since. I have since had the time to reflect on what my superior officer said. He was right. But he did not factor in the equation is my strong work ethic and "soft skills" which set me apart from my peers. My conclusion? Hard work plus average IQ plus high EQ equals success.
