Professional Development

Emotional Intelligence has been shown to be the differentiating point when it comes to professional success. Daniel Goleman, an American psychologist, developed a framework of five elements that define emotional intelligence which include: self-awareness and empathy.

Self-Aware people are willing to take an honest look at themselves. They know their strengths and weaknesses, and they work on these areas so they can perform better. Many people believe that this self-awareness is the most important part of emotional intelligence.

Empathy is perhaps the second-most important element of emotional intelligence. Empathy is the ability to identify with and understand the wants, needs, and viewpoints of those around you. People with empathy are good at recognizing the feelings of others, even when those feelings may not be obvious. As a result, empathetic people are usually excellent at managing relationships, listening, and relating to others.
