EQ vs. IQ: The Secret to a CPA's Success

Course Overview:
Many people still believe that Intelligence Quotient (IQ) outweighs Emotional Quotient (EQ) in the workplace and that success is dependent on our IQ level. Modern research, however, shows over and over that a high IQ might get you in the door, but a high EQ will get you ahead. In this course we will learn to understand IQ and EQ and why they both have their place in career success. In particular, we will review the components of EQ and learn how it is measured and tested.

Learning Objectives:

After completing this course, participants should be able to:
  • Differentiate between Emotional Quotient (EQ) and Intelligence Quotient (IQ).
  • Identify the general measurement tools used to test both IQ and EQ.
  • Recognize why studies conclude that EQ may have such a great impact on a person's work performance.
  • Specify what to look for and what may be needed to maximize your own EQ.
