Daniel Goleman defines emotional intelligence as our capacity to be aware of, to control, and to express emotions.

This means understanding the intricacies of our emotional landscape, exerting authority over our feelings, and being adept at effectively communicating with others. Leadership effectiveness relies heavily on ones capacity to establish healthy interpersonal connections.

Furthermore, emotional intelligence enables leaders to manage interpersonal relationships with wisdom and ease.

Elements of emotional intelligence

Self-Awareness: Refers to the capacity to understand one’s own emotions, strengths, weaknesses, and how they influence one’s performance and relationships.

Self-Management: The capacity to regulate both positive and negative emotions and impulses, as well as to exhibit flexibility and adaptability in response to varying situations.

Social-Consciousness: The capacity to show empathy towards others, effectively navigate political situations, and actively establish professional networks.

Relationship-Management: The skill of motivating and inspiring individuals through persuasive communication, fostering strong bonds, and effectively resolving conflicts.

Leaders must strive to gain a deeper understanding of both themselves and others

To effectively lead with emotional intelligence, leaders must tap into the valuable insights gained from their employees’ diverse backgrounds and take into account the various life experiences that people bring to the table.

Demonstrating an understanding of your employees’ perspectives, including their social identity and how their experiences shape their views, showcases a genuine openness to see the world from their point of view, without passing judgment.

This empathetic approach is not only a sign of strong leadership, but it also fosters a sense of inclusivity and belonging within your team.

When employees feel seen, heard, and valued for who they are, they are more likely to be engaged, motivated, and committed to their work.
