Then, evaluate your own emotional intelligence and examine the role of emotional intelligence in the work of health care leaders and in health care organizations.
This assessment is dedicated to examining emotional intelligence (EQ). The concept of emotional intelligence was developed by Daniel Goleman and has four main components: self-awareness, social awareness, self-management, and relationship management (Daft, 2023). Emotional intelligence is loosely defined as an individual’s ability to “perceive, identify, understand and manage emotions in self and others” (Daft, 2023, p. 146). Experts argue that emotional intelligence is a better predictor of successful decision making and interpersonal relationships than cognitive intelligence, or IQ (Daft, 2023).
Additionally, emotional intelligence is now recognized as a critical factor in leadership development. Your work on this assessment will build on the personal leadership assessment you completed in the first assessment. That leadership assessment examined five critical domains from a high level. In this assessment 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.
