Emotional Intelligence is the capacity to be aware of your emotions, control your emotions, while becoming aware of others emotions and judicially conversing with them in ways that improve interpersonal relationships.
Emotional Intelligence involves understanding your INTRA-PERSONAL self and your INTER-PERSONAL relationships. The preferred Emotional Intelligence model is the EQ-i 2.0. It delves into 5 categories of the characteristics that make up your daily functioning. It includes the normal assessment of your Self-perception, Self-expression, and Interpersonal relationships then goes one step further by assessing your Decision-making skills and your Stress Management abilities.
As you study the information in the EQ-i 2.0, you learn to be more emotionally intelligent in these areas:
- Self-awareness or Self-Perception. The area of self-awareness is concerned with self-acceptance, self-esteem, self-confidence, and assessments you make on a daily basis about your self-worth.
- Self-Expression or Self-Management. When working to improve self-management, you will be looking at your assertiveness, your self-discipline and self-control, your trustworthiness, your problem-solving abilities, your ability to be adaptable when necessary and your ability to live on the positive side of life.
- Interpersonal or Social Awareness. When you are socially aware, you take social responsibility, you are more tolerant and empathetic, and you increase your ability to communicate and build rapport one-on-one with others.
- Relationship Management. Do you want better teamwork and collaboration on your team? Then increase the emotional intelligence of team members. Emotional intelligence skills help you manage conflict and influence the behaviors of others.
- Decision Making. This subscale includes impulse control and how you can make logical and informed decisions and relate to others in an emotion-controlled mode. Understanding Decision Making helps you be inclusive of the team’s ideas and opinions.
