The ability to express and control our emotions is essential, but so is our ability to understand, interpret, and respond to the emotions of others. Imagine a world in which you could not understand when a co-worker was feeling sad or was angry. Psychologists refer to this ability as Emotional Intelligence, and some experts even suggest that it can be more important than the intelligence quotient(IQ) in your overall success in life. Emotional intelligence as a term didn't come into our vernacular until around 1990. Despite being a relatively young term, interest in the concept has grew tremendously over the last 20 years.
Emotional Intelligence is the ability to identify and manage one’s own emotions and the emotions of others, to handle interpersonal relationships, to solve challenges and to make the most effective decisions.
Emotional intelligence is a very important skill in leadership. It is said to have five main elements such as - self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skills.
Students who can understand emotions can accurately label their own and others’ emotions. They know what causes emotions, how emotions change, and how emotions combine. Those who can manage emotions know how to regulate their emotions in stressful situations, they will know what to do to maintain good social relationships with others.
Students with higher levels of emotional intelligence are able to better manage and connect themselves with others around them. This can help them develop improved self-motivation and more effective communication skills which is essential to become more confident.
Developing emotional intelligence is an ongoing process that has a large impact on students’ ability to deal with challenges and learning to live more independently, amongst other factors. It plays a pivotal part in helping students better handle the challenging aspects of academic life.
