The academic achievement gap in poverty schools coupled with the pressure of school ranking based upon standardized tests causes many educators to focus mainly on the academic needs of students.  many of our poverty students lack the Emotional Intelligence that provides an avenue for academic success.  We must build an awareness of emotional intelligence and then build this in our students just as we build their cognitive intelligence

How does this fit into your leadership framework? Do your arrows flow in the same direction? Does it matter? I believe self-management is the key to the flow, impact, and goal of change for leadership. For me, this is box #1 ... where's yours?

EQ really rocks! its presence is subtle but the result is real! To illustrate this :I was looking for my friend in one of those employment agencies when the scenario unfold.Later, I found out a little bit more about  " the offender" as I felt so sorry for her and chatted with her. Apparently 'the offender' is a trainer but was unfortunately finding it hard to land herself a job in the new land she just came to. She was 'enrolled' in one of the government's employment agencies, which was supposed to help her find a job ( by sending her CV to reverse marketers, setting up seminars for her to attend - on revamping CV and tailoring her cover letter to the job she is applying.) She was glad as these means she will also find new friends. One day she said she made a pact with her new found friends to practice one of her tools that she uses in her coaching/ training business. She was practicing one of her tools in one of the rooms in that organisation, when someone came up to her asked her what she was doing ( as it seemed to the untrained eyes, she was playing a board game but once she explained it, that someone told her that she needed to book the room first. So she duly waited for the manager and put what she was doing on hold. The way the manager came  & told the "offender" that was definitely not fitting what I expect of a manager. ( this was the part where I  actually the witnessed) I looked at the unfolding scenario with a sense of disbelieved.  While the manager maybe correct (all organisations have in place their rules and regulations), the way 'the offender' was being handled was really demeaning and lacking of respect.  Instead of saying "I am sorry but this place is strictly for job searching only and you will need to practice elsewhere"( or something along the line) , she came up with words that were quite hurtful and the attitude was one of " I am the rule here, follow or out". what makes it worse was the fact it was on the public domain part of the organisation.Undoubtedly 'the offender' reacted in ways fished out by the manager heavy handling of her(she later told me) . She felt like a criminal and at any one time, there were 2 people ( the manager and another sturdy man, next to the manager, ever ready to bounce her from the organisation).


understandably the manager has to be firm and stern as some of the unemployed probably already demoralized and not themselves, can be insensitive or even unreasonable, but I wonder at the same time, if the manager was also proactively looking for that kind of behaviour by the way she handled the 'offender'?

ALL jobs need EQ, but especailly so with jobs that connect you with others and jobs that need you to built human relationship, having human touch. With EQ tools we will be able to diffuse the situation in a better way. Like everything else EQ gets better with more practice. so kids and EQ is definitely a good idea, no, It is a great idea! and it is definitely "TAUGHTABLE!" ( did I just coined a new word?):)

"At a recent congressional hearing, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan agreed with Shriver’s positive assessment of SEL’s potential. "These are learned skills," he said. "Children can have huge challenges, but when you help them learn how to handle them, you have a chance … If we are not addressing this, we're not in the game."

John Michel's curator insight, July 4, 2013 1:55 PM

Empowering students with tools and techniques to calm themselves, observe the world, and exert positive pressure on their environments reduces the distraction caused by inner and outer turmoil, freeing kids up to concentrate more effectively on the rest of what they are learning. In this way, SEL not only helps enhance students’ emotional wellbeing and maturity but also improves their academic achievement.

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman | iEduc |

Daniel Goleman, in his article “Leadership That Gets Results”, has identified six different leadership styles, and he believes that good leaders will adopt one of these six styles to meet the needs of different situations.


None of the six leadership styles by Daniel Goleman are right or wrong – each may be appropriate depending on the specific context. Whilst one of the more empathetic styles is most likely to be needed to build long-term commitment, there will be occasions when a commanding style may need to be called upon, for example, when a rapid and decisive response is required.
