When it comes to the inner workings of human beings, however, it’s not always to (a) find the data or (b) convince those who don’t believe the data that there’s a strong correlation between business success and emotionally intelligent employees.

We’re going to be doing our best on the EQ @ Work Blog to help develop the EQ Business Case and we’d love to know your questions to help guide our research and we’d like to know about good resources you have found. Together maybe we can help make the case!
