Emotional Intelligence 2.0 Assessment
For decades scientist and other researchers have primarily focused on intelligence as a significant predictor of success, typically IQ tests. In recent years, psychologist have begun to better understand that emotional intelligence is as important as other forms of intelligence and that it may be an even better predictor of success than general intelligence. Why? Because emotional Intelligence is the ability to understand and manage emotions. It has been proven to have a significant impact on mental and physical well being, but also to better equip individuals with negotiating skills, to making friends and influencing others, etc. all key attributes for leadership. Remember we use our emotional skills to navigate the everyday challenges of life and when we can manage feelings and handle stress that is critical to our success.
According to Daniel Goleman, an American psychologist who helped to popularize emotional intelligence, there are 5 key elements to it:
- Self-awareness – Knowing how you feel, how your emotions and actions impact others. Having a clear picture of your strengths and weaknesses
- Self-regulation – Those who can regulate rarely verbally attack others, make rushed decisions, or compromise on values. It is all about staying in control.
- Motivation – Consistently work toward goals & have high standards for their work
- Empathy – Ability to put self in someone else’s shoes, listens attentively, responds to feelings and provides constructive feedback.
- Social skills – Good communicators, manage change and resolve conflicts easily. Able to set an example by walking their talk.
The better that you can manage these areas, the higher your emotional intelligence.
