The Difference Between EQ and IQ

“If you’re so smart, why aren’t you rich?”

"What is the one thing all entrepreneurs have in common?, - the desire to achieve their success !. What is success? Success is defined as the ability to set and achieve your personal and professional goals. This sounds simple but of course it is not. An individuals definition of success will naturally change over time, we want different things and pursue different goals simply because we age and accumulate experience. Only in recent years have we begun to appreciate the powerful links between emotional intelligence and our success. Ever heard the question “If you’re so smart, why aren’t you rich?”. We now know that emotional intelligence matters twice as much as cognitive abilities such as IQ or technical expertise. In the June 21, 1999 Fortune article “Why CEOs Fail” authors Ram Charan and Geoffrey Colvin demonstrate that unsuccessful CEOs put strategy before people. Successful CEOs shine – not in the arena of planning or finances – but in the area of emotional intelligence. They show integrity, people acumen, assertiveness, effective communication and trust-building behaviour. In the past 100 years IQ and IQ testing have dominated societies view of human potential. However, research proves that only 1% of success is down to IQ whereas 26% is down to how competent we are with our emotional skills.
