Overview

Most people focus on the importance of cognitive intelligence in predicting academic and professional success. But a growing amount of evidence suggests that other traits – including the ability to control impulses, manage adversity, find internal motivation, and build relationships – are essential in achieving the best outcomes in both personal and professional relationships.
