Standing Out with Emotional Intelligence in the Fourth Industrial Revolution


In our globalizing world, the demands of the system from us, the requirements to ensure a sustainable economy, and the skills that employees must have to stand out in this system are changing and transforming. This technological transformation phase we are currently in is called the Fourth Industrial Revolution by the world's leading economic leaders and scientists. Covering the Internet, data exchanges, cyber-physical systems and today's production technologies, this term sheds light on a new economic era.

Perhaps the biggest feature of the Fourth Industrial Revolution is that production and services rely heavily on non-human elements such as automation and artificial intelligence. In this new technological order, which is feared to create employment problems, to stay away from this fear and to stand out as a sought-after employee is to embrace the only power that all this automation does not have: emotions.

The ability to feel, empathize, and make prudent decisions are the forces that will make the biggest difference in the new economic order. Discovering and exploiting emotions and the extremely valuable data they provide us will enable you to stand out as an employee or leader, adapt to transforming economic systems, and follow the waves of change well. Recognizing and developing your Emotional Intelligence competencies provides you with the tools you will need on this journey. Here are some of the key skills that Emotional Intelligence provides:

  • Getting to know yourself. By analyzing your feelings and thoughts correctly, you can monitor your reactions and improve your awareness.
  • Developing empathy. By understanding the feelings of the people around you and reading the situation, you can predict how you should act. You can strengthen the sense of trust in your organization by making people feel that they are cared for and understood.
  • Creating a vision. By taking emotional as well as rational data into account, you can create and sustain a meaningful and powerful vision that people will want to be committed to.
  • To lead. With charts and schedules, you can be an inspiring leader who looks after people, brainstorms with them, rather than a manager telling your employees or colleagues what to do.

Being open to change. It is of great importance to follow the innovations in this constantly changing and updated system, rather than having a rigid and unchanging attitude. Knowing how to show flexibility, you can take prudent steps by being open to innovations, leaving behind what no longer serves you. In this way, you can make room for new future systems, ideas or applications, and you can start to adapt them correctly.

The above are just some of the skills and competencies that Emotional Intelligence offers. We invite you to explore your Emotional Intelligence to take advantage of what emotions offer us, to know that we will survive whatever wave of change hits the shore, and to have the key to sustainable success.
