In a world increasingly driven by technology emotional intelligence is more important than ever. As we struggle to cope with the heightened pace and uncertainty of our environment, and find the nature and form of our interactions with others changing, it is necessary to understand and adapt our emotional intelligence to this changing context.
First defined by Daniel Goleman in his seminal book, Emotional Intelligence, this is a field that is now recognized as central to performance, on a par with or perhaps even more significant than IQ.
The model describes two equally important domains of emotional intelligence
1. The Personal Domain
Before understanding how we interact with others, we must first understand ourselves. The Personal Domain looks at the twin competency clusters of Self-Awareness and Self-Management.
Self-Awareness explores how accurately we understand our emotions and how they impact us. It helps us understand our self-image, awareness of strengths and development areas, and openness to feedback.
Self-Management explores our ability to manage our emotions under pressure. Not merely from the perspective of controlling emotional outbursts and moods, but also in terms of maintaining focus, optimism, and drive.
The Personal Domain is the starting point for building greater emotional intelligence, as we must first understand and manage ourselves before understanding and influencing others.
2. The Interpersonal Domain
The second essential element to realizing greater interpersonal impact is developing an enhanced awareness of others and how to influence them. The Interpersonal Domain examines two critical competency clusters in this regard: Social Awareness and Relationship Management.
Social Awareness explores our natural orientation to understanding the needs and emotions of others. It helps us build greater empathy and become more effective collaborators, committed to finding solutions which further the interests of both parties.
Relationship Management examines our natural influencing style. It builds an understanding of natural strengths and underused influencing strategies. It provides a roadmap for developing our influencing effectiveness and our ability to build coalitions and rally support for our ideas and plans.
The Interpersonal Domain opens the door to becoming a more effective leader and more influential presence, capable of building and sustaining strong interpersonal relationships with others.
