EI has gained in importance over the past few years for its contribution in several fields like working environnent, leadership and relationships among individuals. Emotional Intelligence (EI) is a way of recognizing, understanding, and choosing how we think, feel, and act. It shapes our interactions with others and our understanding of ourselves. A main reason IQ no longer predicts success once we are on the job is that everyone we are competing with is about as smart as we. That’s when emotional intelligence adds great value. The empowerment of women is one of the central issues in the process of development of countries all over the world.
