• Emotional Intelligence – a dated approach to people development?

    Is it me, or is Emotional Intelligence starting to feel a little dated? An approach to people development that seems to be getting close to the end of its shelf-life? It strikes me now that the work that Daniel Goleman did to bring the work of Solovey and Mayer to widespread public attention was completed before social media became so ubiquitous.
    The value that I have derived from EI as an approach is in its ability to address a set of development challenges that have substantially changed over the past couple of decades, to the extent that I’m now considering EI as the wrong tool, or possibly the right tool but used wrongly?
