Emotional Intelligence is an essential internal toolkit, a collection of soft or interpersonal skills, that one needs to develop to effectively communicate with others. It is required to help one understand and manage oneself, and skilfully grow your relationships with others. The current pandemic has made it more vital than ever, to communicate in a manner that is clear and unambiguous, not based on habits but on the situation as it unfolds, with an open, empathetic yet critical mind. Take this opportunity to strengthen and apply these vital competencies.
