When we talk about intelligence, the first thing we think about is logical and rational intelligence, what we call IQ. But there is also an emotional intelligence that helps us recognize and guide our moods and those of others. This ability is becoming increasingly important in the world of work. In a 2018 survey conducted by the recruiting site Carrier Builder, 71% of HR managers and executives said they believe emotional intelligence is a more important requirement than IQ.
A fundamental skill at work, especially for those who carry out a managerial function is the Charisma, one of the most coveted, fascinating, and controversial qualities, strictly connected to leadership.
Some define charisma as the “ability to exercise, thanks to intellectual gifts or personal charm, a strong influence on others and to assume the role of a guide”.
Many people, are now, talking about working from a distance or what some people would call “smart working”. But many are questioning this, saying that work is a social thing and part of doing the work is looking into the eye of the other person .
