At BizLifeSolutions we define social intelligence as a person’s ability to handle self, others and situations appropriately, effectively and respectfully.  Social intelligence is the cornerstone of success in all parts of life whether personal, social or professional.

Two individuals can have comparable job expertise, education and experience.  What will set them apart is their level of social intelligence.  Those without it have a much harder time advancing in their careers, being productive or motivating and inspiring others.

A few markers of social intelligence are:

  • Accountability
  • Responsibility
  • Integrity
  • Communication
  • Reliability

To ensure everyone in the organization is operating at the same standard with regard to social intelligence, integrating specific interpersonal metrics into performance reviews is essential.  Check out our Bizassessments to find out how we can customize performance reviews for you!
