A Brief Introduction to Emotional Intelligence
Michigan resident Ron Sorey has held executive leadership positions in sales and business development with a number of companies. In addition to his experience as a sales professional in Michigan, Ron Sorey possesses an in-depth understanding of emotional intelligence.
Psychologists describe emotional intelligence as an individual’s capacity for objectively analyzing and managing his or her own emotions and the emotions of others. Generally speaking, emotional intelligence is defined by how adept an individual is at harnessing emotions to solve a problem or complete a task and managing emotional responses, as well as overall level of emotional awareness.
While emotional intelligence can be exceptionally complex and valuable in a professional setting, individuals engage in simple displays of emotional intelligence on a daily basis. A few common examples include cheering up an unhappy friend or attempting to calm a person who has become angry or frightened. Psychologists continue to debate whether or not, and to what degree, emotional intelligence can be taught or enhanced, but studies have indicated that elevated focus among young students can yield higher emotional intelligence later in life.
