Why do you need to develop emotional intelligence, not professional skills

Our artificial intelligence will select suitable professions for you. It does not evaluate your professional skills but predicts that 80% of professions succeed. Read Career guidance by skills that Menteora refutes.

We advise you first to pump emotional intelligence, not professional skills. Because now, there is a new trend in hiring and selecting people. Emotional intelligence and compliance with the company’s values come to the fore.

Your professional competencies fade into the background because a reasonable and adequate person will receive all the necessary knowledge for work if desired.

To determine if you match the corporate spirit of the company, HR at the interview is trying to understand you. Is it possible to spend 6 hours with you (the applicant) at the airport when the flight is delayed? The team takes those who will be pleasant to spend these 6 hours.

It is easier to negotiate with people who are close in spirit, it is easier to conduct a dialogue, you understand them better, and in general, it is pleasant to spend time in a closed, open space.

Develop empathy and awareness. Develop emotional intelligence. It will help you find the job of your dreams more than any knowledge.

Your employees' emotions will reveal their true motivation

If you develop emotional intelligence, you better understand the people around you. This factor will help you interact more effectively and anticipate their desires. And it will also make it easier for you to understand their true motivation, which sometimes words can't convey. 

Senses can reveal information that people cannot communicate directly to us because these signals come from their motivational system. The areas of the brain that control our actions are not directly connected to the regions responsible for reflecting and explaining our behavior to others. Consequently, it may be difficult for people to accurately describe the factors that cause them to act this way rather than that. 

Instead, the brain area responsible for emotion exchanges signals with the rest of the brain. These are "decoded" and interpreted according to the situation, after which experiences arise.

Three critical aspects of motivation can be inferred from outwardly manifested emotions: success, loyalty, and orientation. These are not the only things that can be imagined from experiences but are central to motivation. These things can be really evaluated based on people's emotions. 

The success factor tells us whether a person is getting closer to or has recently reached a goal. Success in achieving a goal creates positive emotions, while defeat creates negative emotions. Therefore, if an individual displays positive emotions - joyful anticipation, happiness, or relief - these are signals that they have recently achieved success or are confident that they are about to achieve it. When people show negative emotions (fear, excitement, sadness, or frustration), they demonstrate that they have recently had a fiasco in achieving their goals or are about to have one. 

This is important to remember because employees who constantly experience negative emotions are in a situation of failure and task failure. This means that we can talk to them about whether something can be changed in their work situation in a way that will ease their burden. It also allows them to discuss personal difficulties preventing them from being productive. When people feel that their needs and wants are cared for at work, they are much more committed to their organization.

A recent trend has been to focus on creating positive emotions in the workplace. However, the higher people's satisfaction with their current state, the less motivated they are to progress and strive for new heights. A few negative experiences show that people have a goal they still need to achieve. Therefore, it is essential to maintain a balance between a pleasant work atmosphere and the support of colleagues in their pursuit of new challenges. 

The dedication aspect is how much people care about the goal. You can "read" a person's loyalty from the strength of their reactions. For example, if someone has an intense emotional response to some work proposal, we often say they have been "hit on. In reality, we have simply put an obstacle between the person and a goal that is important to them. The strength of the response is hard to control on the part of one subject or another, so it depends on the degree to which one's motivational system is "enabled."
