The new measure

The rules for work are changing. The new rules predict who is most likely to become a star performer and who is most prone to derailing. No matter what field we work in currently, they measure the traits that are crucial to our marketability for future jobs.

Remember the old school days, when academic abilities were the most important standards to success. These rules are largely irrelevant to this standards. The new measure takes for granted having enough intellectual ability and technical know-how to do our jobs; it focuses instead on personal qualities, such as empathy, adaptability, initiative and persuasiveness.

If you work for a large, small organization or for yourself, your ability to perform at peak depends to a large extend on your having these abilities-though almost certainly you were not taught in school.Even so, your career will depend to greater or lesser extend, on how well you have mastered these capabilities.

In a time with no guarantees of job security, when the very concept of a job is rapidly being replaced by transferable skills,this are prime qualities that make and keep us employable. Talked loosely for decades under a variety of synonyms, from character and personality to soft skills and competence, there is at last a more precise name: Emotional Intelligence.
