But, researchers have found that people with average IQs outperform those with higher IQ 70% of the time. It turns out that the missing link in determining a persons long-term success is emotional intelligence, or EQ.Many organizations make the same mistake by focusing on developing hard skills, while the truth is that soft skills, such as emotional intelligence, have been demonstrated to be the strongest predictor of job performance. Plus, high levels of EQ in the workplace creates more rewarding, collaborative, and satisfying workplace relationships, which, in turn, leads to reduced stress and anxiety and greater productivity.   Talent Smart studied 34 important workplace skills, including emotional intelligence, and found that EQ was the highest predictor of work performance and overall success.   Another study of over 40 fortune 500 companies found that programmers in the top 10th percentile of EQ produced software 3 times faster than programmers with low EQ, and high EQ sales representatives outperformed others by 50%.   Studies have found that high EQ also correlates to increases in earnings, problem solving skills, and leadership effectiveness. In fact people with high EQ make an average of $29,000 more a year than those with low EQ.

Here are several examples of why.   After supervisors in a manufacturing plant received training in emotional intelligence, such as how to listen better and help employees resolve problems on their own, lost-time accidents were reduced by 50 percent, formal grievances were reduced from an average of 15 per year to 3 per year, and the plant exceeded productivity goals by $250,000 (Pesuric & Byham, 1996).   In another manufacturing plant where supervisors received similar training, production increased 17 percent. There was no such increase in production for a group of matched supervisors who were not trained (Porras & Anderson, 1981).   The US Air Force used emotional intelligence training and the EQ-I (Emotional Quotient Inventory, Multi-Health Systems, Toronto) to select recruiters and found that the most successful recruiters scored significantly higher in the emotional competencies of assertiveness, empathy, happiness and emotional self-awareness. They found that by using EQ to select recruiters, they increased their ability to predict successful recruiters by nearly three-fold. The immediate gain was a saving of $3 million annually. In a large beverage firm, using standard methods to hire division presidents, 50% left within two years, mostly because of poor performance. When they started selecting based on emotional competencies such as initiative, self-confidence, and leadership, only 6% left in two years. The executives selected based on EQ were far more likely to perform in the top third: 87% were in the top third. Division leaders with these competencies outperformed their targets by 15 to 20 percent. Those who lacked emotional competencies under-performed those that did by almost 20% (McClelland, 1999).
