As noted by Daniel Goleman (2002), self-awareness, self-regulation, social skills, and empathy are all aspects of emotional intelligence. Self-awareness refers to your ability to know your strengths, weaknesses, drives, and motivations. Self-regulation involves being able to control your emotions, based on outside stimuli. Social skill is the ability to manage relationships. Empathy refers to the ability to consider others’ feelings and thoughts and put yourself in their position. Throughout his research, Goleman found effective leaders in organizations tend to score high on emotional intelligence. He calls skills and technical abilities important as the gateway to get into management positions, but once people move up the ranks into executive positions, emotional intelligence skills are crucial.
