Emotional intelligence (also known as EQ) refers to your ability to recognise, understand and manage your emotions. EQ is an incredibly useful skill to possess at work, as, despite existing preconceptions, our workplaces are not emotion-free zones, and your ability to regulate your emotions and understand those of others can lead to a happier, more productive workplace. Emotional intelligence centres on five key areas: self-awareness, emotional control, self-motivation, empathy and social skills. Here's what those five mean in practice and why they are so important to have at work.

1. Self-awareness
The first step in developing emotional intelligence is self-reflection. This involves taking stock of your feelings and how you react to certain situations on an ongoing basis, and pinpointing where your strengths and weaknesses lie. The better your understanding of your emotions and gut reactions, the easier it is to manage them.
