Food for Thought: Emotional Intelligence
Managing your emotions doesn’t always mean keeping them in check. By understanding our emotions – what causes them, how we show them, and what affect they have on ourselves and others – we can make better decisions about how we interact with those around us.
HRDQ has recently made available a great online tool for measuring and improving your Emotional Intelligence. The Emotional Intelligence Skills Assessment (EISA) measures your “EQ” on four scales: Perceiving, Managing, Decision Making, and Influencing. Our staff all took the assessment recently, and we’ve all found it to be a great platform for reflection and self-improvement, as well as a reminder of how important emotional intelligence is in, and out of, the workplace.
