Good Things Happen To Good People.

Earlier, I wrote about several west Michigan companies on a hiring streak. Gentex, for example. Steelcase is another looking for people. Sure, you need a resume and need to look and act like you want the job. What else. Behave yourself and be somebody.

A third of the managers taking part in a new CareerBuilder poll say they’re now giving more consideration to a person’s Emotional Intelligence, or E-I, when making decisions on hiring and promoting people. Nearly 60-percent admit they would not give a job to someone who has a high I-Q but a low E-I, and 75-percent would be much more likely to promote the person with the greater E-I than to the employee with the higher I-Q.

Bosses value workers with Emotional Intelligence for a number of reasons. They see those with a high E-I as employees who are “more likely to stay calm under pressure,” who “know how to resolve conflict effectively,” and who “lead by example.”

Managers add that workers with higher Emotional Intelligence “take criticism well,” and can “admit and learn from their mistakes.” Bosses also find that these people are “empathetic to their team members,” and they “tend to make more thoughtful business decisions.”
