Leadership and Emotional Intelligence

Leadership and Emotional Intelligence | Disability Employment and Education | Scoop.it

Using emotional intelligence can help you succeed as a leader. But what is emotional intelligence, and why is it that success in life sometimes seems unrelated to intelligence and how hard you are prepared to work?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dr Goleman describes five main elements of emotional intelligence:

 

- Self-awareness.


- Self-regulation.


- Motivation.


- Empathy.


- Social skills.

 

Emotional intelligence is the ability to understand and manage both your own emotions, and those of the people you lead. Having a high EQ means knowing what you are feeling, what this means, and how your emotions can affect other people. For leaders, having emotional intelligence is essential for success.

 

Take time to work on self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skills. They will certainly help ensure that you succeed as a leader.
