Society is a complex web of interactions, in which an individual should be able to get along with people harmoniously. This is the fundamental of Social Intelligence (SI). This paper stresses the importance of SI. People with high SI possess magnetic powers that attract others, and are friendly, supportive and caring; they are successful in the society. But people with low SI have problems in interpersonal relationships and are a misfit in the society. This paper discusses the essential characteristics of SI, steps to develop SI, domains of SI, essential requisites for an employee to accomplish success and the effects of poor SI. It concludes by emphasizing that developing or cultivating SI helps one to become successful.
