The self-assessment evaluation signifies some essential traits and strengths whereby, critical understanding of this analysis can adequately improve my capabilities and personality in management skills. However, my present results in self-awareness are unsatisfactory to me, particularly in emotional intelligence. Personally, I am sensitive to issues, but I have learned to maintain my calm (sentiments), more so, when disappointed by an individual or a situation, which may result to negative implications such as making illogical or unreasonable decisions. Nevertheless, the only positive thing with such weakness is that I always understand other people’s emotions, which means, I rarely hurt anybody, but I still end up
Although this main analyses were focused on total emotional intelligence, they found that all four emotional intelligence subscales, and in particular, the managing emotions subscale, were associated with some of this outcomes. Their findings extend some of the past researches that revealed some associations between those self-report measures of emotional intelligence such as job performance (e.g., Law et al., 2004).
In examining emotional intelligence one must understand what exactly it means. Emotional intelligence is the ability to express, control and recognize one’s own emotions while also being able to handle interpersonal relationships with empathy (Kotze & Venter). Emotional intelligence on the surface may seem like an inherent talent or trait but as Kotze and Venter explain in their study it can be a learned and measureable trait. Emotional intelligence looks at an individuals management skill set as a whole to assess capacity. Traits such as personality, mood, motivation, and other seemingly genetic qualities do contribute to emotional intelligence but the actual skill can be developed and learned despite what one is “given”.
As nurses, one may experience varied emotions such as happiness, sadness, anxiety, failure, anger and etc. Nurses are programmed to respond to a vast array of emotions. As a nurse leader, it is critical that emotional intelligence come into play. This intelligence helps us acknowledge our emotional instinct and help us to act rational. Emotional intelligence gives us the ability to withdraw our own emotions from a situation to make a strategic decision for the benefit of a patient. According to Daniel Goleman (1998), Emotional Intelligence is "the capacity for recognizing our own feelings and those of others, for motivating ourselves, and for managing emotions well in ourselves and in our relationships.

Emotional Intelligence refers to the ability of a person to recognize, understand and master their own emotions as well as those of others (Codier & Codier, 2017). For anyone in a leadership position, charge nurse, nurse manager or director, being able to recognize and manage emotions in themselves and others is a great advantage. Indeed, emotional intelligence is viewed as one of the best predictors of a successful leader (Codier & Codier, 2017). According to Goleman and colleagues (as cited in McEwen & Wills, 2014), Emotional Intelligence is separated into four categories of self-awareness, self-management, social awareness and social skills. Self-awareness could be considered the most important of the four as it describes the ability to understand our emotions and recognizing our own strengths and weaknesses (McEwen
Emotional intelligence is an important factor which influences an individual success in their life (Ishak, Chiu, Rahim, Mahat, Hashim, Mutalib and Jdaitawi, 2013). “Intellectual intelligence contributes only 20% to one’s success while the remaining 80% of a person’s success in life is contributed by emotional and social intelligence” (Goleman, 1997). Yusof and Yaacob (2012) had mentioned that in their study that “Emotional intelligence is one of the main aspects of the National Education Philosophy”. Through the National Education Philosophy the important for emotional intelligence is extremely obvious and essential as intellectual intelligence and spiritual intelligence. If the students possess positive emotions towards their course, they
One of the leading theories of human decision making is Prospect Theory (Kahneman & Tversky, 1979). It is a more psychologically accurate approach to describing human decision making, compared to the expected utility theory. In particular, an important element of prospect theory, reference-dependent preferences, is based on the main idea that an individual’s assessment of an outcome, is not only determined by the outcome itself but how the outcome compares to a reference point. In doing so, it typically assumes that outcomes relative to the reference point; are evaluated by an S-shaped value function – capturing two key components: loss aversion (suggesting losses hurt more than gains feel good) and diminishing sensitivity (by being convex
"A leader is a person who decides; sometimes he decides right, but always he decides.” As this anonymous quote demonstrates, leadership and decision making are inextricably linked. Leaders are often called upon to make important decisions which will have far-reaching impacts on the lives of many people. Because of this, it is essential that those who wish to become great leaders work diligently to cultivate their decision-making skills. Aspiring leaders can learn to make positive decisions by studying the traits of the great decision makers of history, such as Rosa Parks, Cesar Chavez, Marie Curie, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Franklin Delano Roosevelt. When one looks at the similarities between these influential leaders, it becomes clear that effective decision makers consistently display the qualities of bravery, rationality, and selflessness.
In “Serve To Be Great” Tenney makes several references to the importance of emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence is the ability to recognize emotions, control them, and apply them to solving a problem or task. In the fire service we deal with hectic and disturbing situations daily. It is imperative that we as leaders are able to maintain a calm and collected demeanor. We cannot allow our emotions or the emotions of others to affect our decision making.

I find taking personality tests very interesting. One part of the previous assignment, was to complete the Holland test. I was asked to choose characteristics from six different categories. The categories with the highest amounts of checks were artistic, conventional, and social. I agree with the test that I am artistic and conventional. However, I do not agree with social. This was surprising to me. I think I am social to a certain point. I do not hate people but being around some for too long bothers me. I believe I am social in the aspect of like helping groups of people. I also took another test based on Holland’s personality characteristics. I received the same results. I clicked on the option to show careers that best fit with my personality
According to Goleman’s emotional intelligence model (2001), four component include self awareness, self management, social awareness and relationship management.
An understanding of what precisely creates emotional intelligence is essential not simply due to the capacity that is so fundamental to leadership but because some people are strong in some of its elements which can be totally lacking in others (Ovans, 2015). The overall result of (Kerr, et al, 2005) data analysis shows that the person’s emotional intelligence may be a key to effective
