A good article on Emotional Intelligence to share with you.
What was regarded in the past as a “soft skill” has emerged as one of the most critical determinants of career and leadership success: emotional intelligence. While leaders may not be able to change the aspects of their personality that others find unappealing, adding communication and thinking strategies can help improve their interactions with others, and ultimately lead to higher career success.
The 3 tenets of emotional intelligence:
- Social self-awareness – Recognize who you are socially and emotionally.
- Empathy – Read people and situations accurately.
- Self-control– Respond appropriately based on who you are interacting with and what the situation calls for.
