Emotional Intelligence

Posted: 2 months ago

When we think about an
effective leader the characteristic that comes to our minds is emotional
intelligence. Emotional intelligence is the ability to recognize your emotions,
understand what they’re telling you and realize how your emotions affect you. It also involves your perception of others: when you understand how
they feel, this allows you to manage relationships more effectively. It is said
that people with high emotional intelligence are usually successful in most
things they do because they are the ones that other people want in their teams.
An American psychologist developed a framework or five elements that define
emotional intelligence and they were: 
Self-awareness:
to understand your own feeling.  
Self-regulation: the ability to control
their emotions and impulses.
Motivation: a set of facts and arguments
used in support of a proposal.
Empathy: ability to know what others
wants from you.        
Social skills:
managing emotions of others that include inspiring others. Organizations
are highly using emotional intelligence when they hire or promote.
For Example, one largest cosmetics company recently revised their hiring
process for the salesperson to choose candidates based on their emotional
intelligence. The result was better than the people that were selected on the
old system. The ability to manage people and relationships is very important in
all leaders, so developing and using your emotional intelligence can be a good
way to show others the leader inside of you.
