Emotional Intelligence - what does it consist of?

Daniel Goleman in his book – Working with Emotional Intelligence breaks down the attributes of emotional intelligence into 2 general areas of Personal Competence: how we manage ourselves; and Social Competence - how we handle relationships with others.  Under Personal Competence he further breaks it down into three sub-components of: Self-Awareness; Self-Regulation; and Motivation.  Under Social Competence he breaks it down into two sub-components of: Empathy consisting of an awareness of others’ feelings, needs and concerns; and Social Skills as an Adeptness at inducing desirable responses in others.  As opposed to IQ which is generally not as fluid or as changeable across a lifespan, emotional intelligence is more readily learned, and we can increase in our emotional intelligence abilities.  Our level of emotional intelligence is a significant influencer in achieving interpersonal success as well as career success.  You can learn more about this by reading on your own about it or addressing these concepts through Life Coaching or Counseling. http://www.emapdrschulz.com/life-coaching
