Challenges of Leadership EQ & Positive Influence Leadership

2 Emotional Intelligence
Emotional Intelligence has been defined as: The capacity for recognizing our own feelings and those of others, for motivating ourselves, for managing emotions well in ourselves and in our relationships. Interpersonal intelligence is the ability to understand other people: what motivates them, how they work, how to work cooperatively with them. Intrapersonal intelligence is a correlative ability, turned inward. It is a capacity to form an accurate model of oneself and to be able to use that model to operate effectively in life. D Goleman: "Emotional Intelligence" (Bantam, 1995) & "Working with EI" (Bantam, 1998) 2a-2
