Jay Williams On Emotional Intelligence As A Competitive Differentiator

September 9, 2019

[132] People weren't actively buying on Amazon ten years ago. We weren't streaming our movies at home, nor were we getting our groceries delivered. We're getting to a point where someone might have 1/40th of the human interaction they would have had 20,30 years ago. That creates a premium on the hair and beauty industry's craft. Robots and AI might be knocking at various industries' doors, but they'll only be replacing repetitive and monotonous jobs. According to the World Economic Forum, the ability to read, understand and adjust behaviour when facing various emotions will be one of the top ten skills businesses will be giving importance to in the coming years, especially when hiring staff.

Featuring business coach, speaker and author Jay Williams, this week's conversation picks up a concept left hanging in Phorest FM Episode 116: emotional intelligence.
