Think about some of the best leaders you’ve known in your career. Were they great listeners, empathetic, cared about your and others well-being, and had your back? These are signs of emotional intelligence. It’s an essential skill that can be developed and help build meaningful connections in high-performing teams.

On this episode, Deloitte chief well-being officer Jen Fisher talks with Dr. Dan Goleman, psychologist and author of the bestseller, “Emotional Intelligence and Social Intelligence: The New Science of Human Relationships”, about the importance of emotional intelligence throughout the workplace.

We’re all born with emotional capacities. They vary greatly person to person. The good news is it [emotion] is learned and learnable. You’re given set points for your neurotransmitters in the brain that determine whether you’re outgoing, shy, and so on, but all of that can be changed with learning.

— Dr. Dan Golelman, author of Emotional Intelligence and Social Intelligence: The New Science of Human Relationships
