  • ISSN : 0258-2236


The first part of this article defines what it means to be emotionally and socially intelligent and describes a scientific approach to measuring this behaviour. The second part empirically demonstrates that this construct is important in that it significantly impacts a wide spectrum of human performance based on a review of existing research findings. The third part of the article reviews additional findings indicating that the relevant competencies and skills involved in this type of behaviour can be enhanced in the schoolroom, workplace and clinical setting. The importance and implications of the findings presented are discussed as well as the next steps needed to educate more people to be more emotionally and socially intelligent.
