Have you ever wondered why EQ matters more than IQ? Lousin Mehrabi is an international trainer and coach in complex negotiations, emotional intelligence and leadership. Each person’s emotional quotient is a key aspect of determining how they manage interpersonal relationships. Developing a good sense of interpersonal awareness and maintaining connections with others remains an important aspect of the business world. As Lousin Mehrabi states during the interview: “It’s important to know yourself, [and] be humble [by knowing] what you can do and what you can’t do by putting your ego aside.”

Learning how to be better negotiator through understanding more about ourselves and others can help many of us achieve more of our career goals. In this episode, Hala Taha and our guest Lousin Mehrabi discuss the importance of understanding EQ and share valuable tips on how to develop the skills needed to succeed in negotiations and leadership roles.
