"Emotional intelligence is the key to being really successful," he told Business Insider.
Perhaps that's why more and more companies are asking interview questions that are designed to measure a candidate's emotional intelligence - which is the ability to perceive, control, and evaluate emotions
Phil Johnson, founder of Master of Business Leadership (MBL) Inc., an online coaching platform, says in a LinkedIn post that these are some of the most common ones:
1. What makes you laugh?
2. When is the last time you were embarrassed? (What happened? How did you handle the situation?)
3. What activities energize and excite you?
4. How do you have fun?
5. What are two personal habits that have served you well?
6. How good are you at accepting help from others?
7. How good are you at asking for help?
8. What is one of the internal battles to have each day?
9. What makes you angry?
10. How could you create more balance in your life?
11. Who inspires you? Why?
12. On an "average day" would you consider yourself a high or low energy person?
13. On an "average day" is your main focus on results and tasks or people and emotions?
"Emotional intelligence multiplies the results and effectiveness of intellectual intelligence," Johnson writes in the LinkedIn post. "Emotional labor is the most difficult type of work to do and up until now, the easiest to avoid. It is the essential education we need to embrace the unimaginable."
