Even if emotional intelligence is the determining factor for remarkable leadership, this does not mean that intellect on its own is not important. Brain anatomy, neural networks and cognitive skills can be enhanced and strengthened through experience and interaction with the given environment (according to Richard Boyatzis and Annie McKee (1998), Resonant Leadership.«Re­newing Yourself and Connecting with Others Through Mindfulness, Hope and Compassion».Harvard Business School Press,Boston,Massachusetts. 2006. ) . Hence, individuals are called upon managing difficulties and challenges within organisations, at the same time exhibiting the relative intelligence. They must be capable of identifying associations in seemingly unrelated data departments, as well as understanding strategy, economy, technology and the market, in order to use and communicate the acquired knowledge quickly and efficiently (from the book “Leadership Today”).
