We need this as we go into each day. Children need to be learning and using in their learning.

Dr. Amy Fuller's curator insight, July 8, 2013 8:20 PM

Daniel Goleman, a guru or emotional intelligence, provides questions for self-reflection.  I've read his book on Emotional intelligence and he reports emotional intelligence, or what some of us call "soft skills," as the main indicator of success in the workplace. 

 

According to these 10 questions, intended for self-reflection, emotional intellegence includes self-awareness, acknowledgement of personal limitations and strengths, emotional regulation, adaptation to change, negotiation, empathy, persuasion, ability to focus and being a team player. 

 

And the good news: emotional intelligence competencies can be upgraded.
