He asked himself , “What can we do to reduce stress at work, and improve productivity of teams?”
With the seeds of this idea, he teamed up with Andrey to create EQMatch.
Our society has always put intelligence and skills at the forefront.
It was only in the 1990s that the term “Emotional Intelligence” was officially coined.
