OUR NON-NEGOTIABLES: EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCEBy Eric Duea | Company Updates
At the Gunter Group, we consider emotional intelligence essential for understanding and solving complex problems. In short, emotional intelligence is the ability to understand and manage emotions in yourself and others. For us, it’s about more than accurately reading and adapting to social cues, although this is an important part of EQ. It’s pulling from the depths of our intelligence, experience, and heart to show up fully for ourselves, each other, and our clients. It’s an approach that not only feels great but gets the best possible results.
