  • SELF AND OTHERS
  • Howard Gardner – multiple intelligences (1980s) Term “emotional intelligence” was formally coined by Mayer and Salovey in 1990 Daniel Goleman’s book was incredibly influential – although some say it’s unreadable!!!!Today’s session is based around the BarOn model for EQ explained in the orange book Introduce BarOn’s tool for measuring EQExplain the correlation between the book and the tool Mention the 15 EQ areas WHICH GENDER DO YOU THINK HAS THE HIGHEST EQ?
  • AS WE GO THROUGH THESE, BE THINKING OF WHICH WILL HELP MOST IN BUILDING RESILIENCE Big impact on someone’s overall EQ Solid foundation on which to build (if someone has low self-regard, this can have knock-on effect on other areas)Age, gender, background, past experiences could all have an impact Gender split Split between body image and accepting ‘whole’ self  
  • Can you trace your feelings/emotions? Another key area – having high levels of self-awareness will help you in lots of others EQ areas e.g. if understand self, may find it easier to understand others too Split between understanding themselves and being able to express this, which has a clear link to assertiveness
  • Strong link between assertiveness and self-regardIf very high assertiveness, would look at empathy and impulse control, too; if they were low, what might this behaviour look like? What might behaviour look like if someone had high levels of assertiveness with low levels of impulse control?
  • High independence would indicate an individual who is happy to go their own way, even if other team members don’t agree What if we have lots of managers with high levels of independence?
  • Ability to understand where you want to go in life – are you on the right path? Low SA could also be depression rather than lack of compass Possibly a national movement with the recession?
  • Also related to team awareness and ability to work together
  • Obama identified the empathy gap (see page x in workbook) Also, our Government has identified that there needs to be a greater emphasis on recruiting nurses with demonstrable empathic skills So we know it’s an important! Empathy often developed within families – needs to be nurtured in childhood in order to avoid problems later If someone had high levels of empathy and low levels of assertiveness, what might their behaviour look like?
  • Manager who is taking people through change will need strong relationship skills POSSIBLE QUESTION – FOR A MANAGER WHO IS TAKING A TEAM THROUGH SIGNIFICANT CHANGE, WHICH EQ AREA WILL BE THE MOST USEFUL?
  • Walking down the street
  • Responding to change Someone may appear to be very flexible – but may actually be low in assertiveness!
  • If you solve problems based on “gut” reaction, it is likely that problem solving won’t be one of your highest strengths
  • Ability to cope Strong links to wellbeing
  • Strongly linked to stress tolerance is impulse control - access to ‘pause’ button, highly desirable in a manager Has anyone been managed by someone with poor impulse control? How was that as an experience? What did that behaviour look like?Why isn’t impulse control given its due in the workplace? Indicator of poor impulse control - road rage Supermarkets
  • Barometer – good link to what is going on and will be highly influenced by bereavements, divorce, etc.
  • Importance of optimism - strong links between it and general wellbeing and longevity
  • 1.50pm Refer to definitions in on page 11 of workbookKey words to pick up on: ‘recover’, ‘adjust’ and ‘toughness’ – so there’s something around bouncing back and adjusting to change Before I wrote this module, I asked you what you wanted me to cover and the work that kept coming up was a variation of ‘bouncebackability’!, which relates nicely to these key words Something to remember – we can all increase our levels of resilience. Throughout today, we’re talking about behaviours and skills that can be learned and developed
  • Growing in emotional resilience requires that you work towards greater self-knowledge. It is important, for example, that you to learn to identify how you react in emotional situations. Becoming aware of how you react when stressed helps you gain better control over those reactions.In short, emotionally intelligent people intentionally use their thinking and behavior to guide their emotions rather than letting their emotions dictate their thinking and behavior. People who are highly emotionally intelligent tend to also be highly emotionally resilient. (Harry Mills, & Mark Dombeck)
