Four Domains of Emotional Intelligence

Did you know emotional intelligence is a key predictor for success? It’s more reliable than education, standard IQ, etc.

If we want to be successful – at whatever it is – we must prioritize emotional intelligence.

Self-Awareness

Ability to perceive and identify emotions in oneself & understanding root causes, including the impact on emotions and behaviors. This is a base necessity for EQ. Without it, all other domains will suffer.

Self-Management

Ability to harness emotions to facilitate thinking and actions for positive outcomes. Key traits are self-discipline and willpower. It is extremely difficult to manage oneself without self-awareness.

Social Awareness

Ability to understand others’ emotions & emotional cues, including what people need at any given moment. Key trait is empathy. Without the ability to this for ourselves, it is hard to do this for others.

Relationship Awareness

Ability to harness emotions of self and others to achieve a common goal. Key traits are communication, conflict management, and team-building. All other domains are necessary for this one!!

Please check out recent posts for more information about identifying triggers to uncover our unmet needs so that we can align our behaviors with who we want to be and what we want to achieve without harming others in the process.

And please remember, emotional intelligence is not just about what WE need; it’s about what we need *and* how we can achieve it without having a negative impact on others.
