Emotional Intelligence: What is it? Why is it so important? What are the implications?
I found the results useful:
“The results of this study indicate that companies should place greater emphasis on developing the attributes of emotionality (capacity for relationship skills, empathy, emotional perception and expression) and self-control (capacity for controlling emotions, urges, and managing stress) when hiring new managers or promoting persons to higher positions of leadership in the organization.”
This also reflects the importance of developing Emotional Intelligence among educators and learners, and the feeling, perceptions and emotions whilst learning in social networks.
How does emotional intelligence relate to the divided brain? Is emotional intelligence still a myth in neuroscience? Would emotional intelligence require both sides of the brain to function well?
Not sure if these are of interests to our fellow MOOC Changers.
Would emotional intelligence lead people to become smarter, wiser? May be, in accordance to the research findings. But again, there are still many assumptions here, when the definition of what Emotional Intelligence is is still emerging at this digital age. How does emotional intelligence impact on educational leadership?
