Emotional Quotient, or Emotional Intelligence, is essentially emotional self-regulation. Watch this video in order to explore how your emotional quotient (EQ) is linked with personality, IQ, and workplace performance.
As described in the video, EQ is broken down into the following two parent categories, each with two subsets categories, personal competence = self-awareness and self-management & social competence = social awareness and relationship management. In the book Emotional Intelligence 2.0, these four categories each have 17 strategies for improvement.

Learning about your emotional quotient will help you manage conflict within your work and personal relationships, giving you a broader understanding of yourself and others. The more aware we are, the more able we are to manage our stresses and be better prepared to combat burnout, feel healthier, and stay happier in the workplace & within personal relationships.
