Emotional Intelligence (EI) is increasingly relevant to organizational development and developing people,
because the EI principles provide a new way to understand and assess people's behaviours, management styles,
attitudes, inter-personal skills, and potential.

EI is that quality in a person that endears him/her to others. It is a synergistic combination of two
³intelligences´ ± intra-personal and inter-personal intelligences.

Success requires more than IQ (Intelligence Quotient), which has tended to be the traditional measure of
intelligence. There are people who are academically brilliant and yet are socially and inter-personally inept.
And we know that despite possessing a high IQ rating, success does not follow.

Realising the importance of emotional intelligence for upward mobility on the corporate ladder, Olympia
College had organized a workshop by guest speaker, G.K. Lim on ³       
   
  
 ´ at the Kuala Lumpur campus on 21 August 2010 to assist the participants to understand the
concept of Emotional Intelligence (EI) and to show them how to acquire this useful skill.
