Emotional Intelligence, a pillar of human skills

Emotional Intelligence, a pillar of human skills, has its founding fathers and disciples who continue to propagate its importance. Let’s find out who the visionaries behind this revolutionary concept are and how it impacts our behavioural assessment.

The fathers of Emotional Intelligence: Emotional Intelligence (EI) was conceptualised by two eminent psychologists: Peter Salovey (now President of Yale University) and John D. Mayer. Their pioneering work in the 1990s laid the foundations for this field by focusing on the ability to perceive, understand, manage and use emotions effectively.

Their disciples: Salovey and Mayer’s most renowned disciple is Daniel Goleman. His book “Emotional Intelligence” and his numerous conferences around the world have helped to popularise the concept and show how EI plays an essential role in personal and professional success. Goleman also broadened the scope of EI by identifying five key skills: self-awareness, self-control, motivation, empathy and social skills.

Another well-known disciple is Travis Bradberry, co-author of “Emotional Intelligence 2.0”. He focuses on improving EI skills through assessments and practical advice.

Conclusion: Emotional Intelligence, conceived by Peter Salovey and John Mayer, remains a crucial skill in the professional world. Thanks to their disciples such as Daniel Goleman and Travis Bradberry, this concept continues to spread throughout the world, having a positive influence on behaviour, relationships and success.
