Through a number of models, authors and tools, Emotional Intelligence has given us new ways of regarding ourselves, our relationships, and the developmental choices we have. Living with purpose and passion means moving toward fulfillment of our potential personally, professionally, and emotionally. Emotional Intelligence gives us a compass to understand the navigation of all these elements of life.
