Transcript of EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE
Using EI for effective leadership.
An effective leader uses emotional intelligence to better understand and lead their employees in the direction they wish to go.
"Emotional intelligence (EI) is a person’s ability to (1) perceive emotions in the self and others, (2) understand the meaning of these emotions, and (3) regulate one’s emotions accordingly" (Robbins, 2013)

What interested me the most was the subject of Emotional Intelligence. I noticed that the difference in management and the regular employees, was that most of the employees at my job do not have a grasp on emotional intelligence. Some are quick to temper flares, gossiping, and taking things too personally. The managers on the other hand, usually took things in stride, calmly addressing the situation and coming up with a solution. It differentiates a leader from a manager and a manager from a subordinate.
