Key Insights

Emotional Intelligence, Emotional Leadership or Emotional Quotient is the capability of individuals to recognize their own emotions and those of others, discern between different feelings and label them appropriately, use emotional information to guide thinking and behaviors, and manage or adjust emotions to adapt to environments or achieve one’s goals.

Five Elements of Emotional Intelligence:

  • Emotional Self-Awareness – being aware of what you are feeling moment to moment as well as seeking to understand the impact this has on others.
  • Self-regulation – attempting to control or redirect your emotions and learning to anticipate the consequences before you act on impulse.
  • Motivation – utilizing emotional factors to overcome and persevere.
  • Empathy – learning how to tunr in and sense the emotions of others.
  • Social skills – learning how to effectively manage relationships and inspire others.
