This is an image from a series of six. In 2013 I put together unlikely couples for an exhibition. Back then I believed you can get on with whoever, simply by making enough of an effort. Yes, that was back then. In the meantime I have learned a hard lesson, and this is how I came across the term Emotional Intelligence (EI). It is one of those things some people possess without actually knowing, others don’t. But obviously one can work on it. I hear it becomes more and more sought after in the corporate world, particularly in leaders.
