Neuroscience of Emotional Intelligence


In the new world of work, the need to perform at a high level is the focus point in any organisation. This highlights the need for positive psychology in the workplace to keep employees engaged in such a highly demanding environment. Research has shown that 91% of employees in SA are disengaged. This means that they have become transient employees, only there for the pay check. This points towards the need for a different way of thinking about human behaviour in the work place. E-motion is the driving force behind behaviour where behaviour is the visible part and emotions may often be submerged. Contrary to previous beliefs, emotions form a very important part of everyday functioning. Therefore, using emotions intelligently forms the foundation for effective engagement with others.
