Emotional Intelligence quotient (EQ) has become a vital part of how today's HR meets the significant challenges it faces. In the middle of the "Talent War", especially at the highest levels in organisations, emotionaly intelligent employees i.e. , the ones who have the capacity to grasp, appreciate and discerningly manage emotions of others, can give organisations a competitive edge. Success at work is 80% dependent on emotional intelligence and only 20% dependent on Intelligent quotient," HR magazine, November 1997. As a consequence, EQ has become more relevant to important work-related outcomes such as individual performance, organizational productivity because its principles provide new ways of understanding and assessing behaviours, attitudes, interpersonal skills, and potential of people.

First, any effort to improve the EI of organizational members will ultimately fail unless it affects naturally occurring relationships among those members. The second important implication is that interventions that focus on only one part of the model are not likely to be very effective. So, for instance, a training program designed to help members become emotionally intelligent will not be of much help because it targets only one part of the modelHR functions. Such training efforts will succeed only if the organizational leadership and culture support them
