How Can I Use Emotional Intelligence Systematically?

To gain the maximum outcomes from your commitment to Emotional Intelligence (EI) a very practical and easily remembered approach would be to set yourself up with an Emotional Intelligence Framework which would then be woven into your professional image and communication strategies both inside and outside the workplace.

Such a Framework might contain some (or all) of the following – the exact content is up to you but must be values that you subscribe to;

  1. Self-Awareness
  2. Emotional awareness (that of your own and of others)
  3. Accurate self-assessment (perhaps use a critical friend to give you some balance with this?)
  4. Self-confidence
  5. Self-Regulation
  6. Self-control
  7. Trustworthiness
  8. Conscientiousness
  9. Adaptability
  10. Innovativeness
  11. Self –Motivation
  12. Achievement drive
  13. Commitment
  14. Initiative
  15. Optimising activity and opportunity

Good Luck!
