Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is the ability to monitor your own emotions as well as others’; to distinguish and label different emotions correctly, and to use emotional information to guide your own thinking and behavior and to influence others. Emotional Intelligence not only helps us fulfill our personal dreams, and improve relationships with others, it also facilitates our ability to lead or help others through difficult, emotionally stressful times. For the Medical profession, the ability to relate and communicate to patients, providers and staff is critical for success.
