Emotional Intelligence Is Good for Business

August 14, 2014

Build stronger relationships to help achieve a successful career in direct selling. Check out how emotional intelligence can have a direct influence on your business.

Take a moment and think about the way you interact with others and how you regulate emotions in nearly every aspect of your life. Building stronger relationships, achieving career goals and succeeding at work―that’s what emotional intelligence looks like. While work ethic and knowledge are essential for an effective work life, emotional intelligence―the way you manage emotions (your own and those of others) ―can have a major influence on your business. 

At WorldVentures, we strive to provide rich and unique opportunities for our Representatives and customers. Our Reps make money doing what they love; that’s one of the reasons why WorldVentures has opted for the direct-selling model, because it allows for a hands-on approach to vacation club memberships. 

We’re committed to assisting customers in making the right choices for themselves and their families. Our Independent Representatives around the world strongly embody the five factors of emotional intelligence―self-regulation, social skills, empathy, self-awareness and motivation.*
