Social vs. Emotional Intelligence
Who knew the “terrible twos” would set a person up for their future existence in the professional world? It’s a formative time in a child’s life, when they start to express social and emotional cues. As the child becomes an adult, individuals develop social and emotional intelligence—both of which have strong roots in their childhood years.
Social intelligence and emotional intelligence each have unique characteristics. And it’s important to understand them both individually so business leaders, managers, and employees better comprehend how they work together.
