9 Questions Emotionally Intelligent People Always Ask

9 Questions Emotionally Intelligent People Always Ask | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Emotional Intelligence (EI or EQ) has been a hot Inc. topic written by many of my colleagues. I've also registered my thoughts on the power of EQ in leadership, or how to respond with emotional intelligence to people who push your buttons.

 

But ask any scholar and they'll tell you the study of EQ has not had a smooth history. It has been debated since the mid-1990s over its effectiveness as an evidence-based leadership model,  or as a predictor of job success.

 

Sure, I agree that in many professions -- some higher-level teaching, medicine, accounting, engineering, and other highly-technical professions -- IQ still remains the best predictor of job success.

9 Questions You Need To Ask

Daniel Goleman, the foremost authority on emotional intelligence, has put together these questions to help you evaluate your own emotional intelligence, and get you thinking about your strengths and limitations in EQ.

 

Are you usually aware of your feelings and why you feel that way?

Critical Thinking: A Necessary Skill in the Age of Spin - Randy Kasten

Critical Thinking: A Necessary Skill in the Age of Spin - Randy Kasten | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
G. Randy Kasten is an attorney and author of Just Trust Me: Finding the Truth in a World of Spin.

   The ability to think critically is one skill separating innovators from followers. Critical thinking reduces the power of advertisers, the unscrupulous and the pretentious, and can neutralize the sway of an unsupported argument. This is a skill most students enjoy learning because they see immediately that it gives them more control.              

   The first step in teaching critical thinking is to help students recognize how easily false ideas can creep into their belief system. For example:

1) People believe stories because they are the ones available;

2) Beliefs may justify past actions;

3) People may not recognize the significance of their own perceptions.

   Students don't need much convincing that two of the biggest enemies of the truth are people whose job it is to sell us incomplete versions of the available facts, and the simple absence of accurate information. They may need more convincing that a significant problem is their own willingness to believe what they want to believe.
