Emotional Intelligence

Create a 6-9-page analysis and reflection on why emotional intelligence is a key competency for health care and its role in promoting teamwork and collaboration.

Introduction
This assessment is dedicated to emotional intelligence (EQ). Emotional intelligence was pioneered by Daniel Goleman and has four main components: self-awareness, social awareness, self-management, and relationship management (Daft, 2015). Emotional intelligence is loosely defined as an individual’s ability to “perceive, identify, understand and manage emotions in self and others” (Daft, 2015, p. 146). Experts argue that emotional intelligence is a better predictor of successful decision making and interpersonal relationships than cognitive intelligence, or IQ (Daft, 2015).

You will look specifically at emotional intelligence. By completing this assessment, you will evaluate your EQ and explore the role that EQ plays in successful leadership.
