Best selling author, Dr. Daniel Goleman, defines emotional intelligence as the “capacity for recognizing our feelings and the feelings of those around us; for managing those feelings; and for motivating ourselves.”
Emotional intelligence involves developing abilities that fall into five domains.
Observing yourself and recognizing a feeling as it happens.
2. Managing emotions:
Handling feelings so that they are appropriate; realizing what is behind a feeling; finding ways to handle fears and anxieties, anger, and sadness.
