Emotions are at the heart of cultural interactions. Individuals who are emotionally intelligent tend to be more empathetic, committed and motivated, and energetic. All which are helpful in cultural competency and working with differing groups or individuals. The more individuals are able to understand and manage their emotions, the more comfortable their interactions with others and their environments.
