Emotional Intelligence (EI) – new skill & habit to develop (Linkeldin )

What is it all about ?

Understanding and Observing our own/others emotions to achieve goal.

Why is it so important now ?

As per recent research its found that the knowledge which we gain through education/profession is somehow detached with the emotions and thus we all often fail to reach goals…both personal and professional…of course it effects individuals and Organizations as a whole. Recently top companies are now using combination of AI with emotional feed as a tool to interview applicants.  According to recent study the contents in the resume/cv are no longer relevant and cannot justify how a person can perform in the future. If there is an possibility to evaluate a person on behavior based assessment like how a person behaves in stressful condition or when defeated …..it will be more useful for the organization which is hiring this person. Pymetrics is a good example, lot of top companies are slowly moving from scanning of hundreds of profiles to usage of AI+emotional traits to evaluate job seekers. Pymetrics is a new, game-based recruiting tool that assesses the strengths of candidates and recommends the right careers and companies for them. The pymetrics games were created based on decades of well-established neuroscience research. They assess fifty key cognitive and emotional traits.
