He claims that “To be successful requires the effective awareness, control and management of one’s own emotions, and those of other people.” In other words, to be emotionally intelligent. “Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is the ability to perceive emotions, to access and generate emotions so as to assist thought, to understand emotions and emotional knowledge, and to reflectively regulate emotions so as to promote emotional and intellectual growth.” EQ embraces two aspects of intelligence:
• Understanding yourself, your goals, intentions, responses, and behaviour; and
• Understanding others, and their feelings. This module explains what EQ is, how to apply it to personal and workplace relationships and how to evaluate and develop your EQ skills.
