Using Emotional Intelligence (EQ) and Cultural Intelligence (CQ) knowledge, tools, and techniques in managing projects


One unhappy person can ruin your beautiful plans.  The process side of project management is disciplined and relatively finite - the real challenge comes with managing the people involved with the project and their day-to-day motivations, interactions, and issues.  Emotional Intelligence tools and techniques can help manage the people side of the equation and make following processes easier for your team.  Cultural Intelligence (CQ) plays an important part in managing the people side of project management, even within co-located teams.
