IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING WORD LIMIT REQUIREMENTS:

The purpose of this assignment is to reflect upon the role of emotional intelligence in collaboration and planning.
To document your leadership experiences, team collaboration, and learning, you will complete a series of weekly journal entries that will be used as the basis for the Week 6 benchmark assignment. A person’s level of emotional intelligence can often determine their reaction to crises. As a public health professional, the ability to remain calm and make good decisions in sensitive, stressful situations, and to be able to read and appropriately react to the emotions of others, is of primary importance.

- Discuss your strengths and weaknesses as they relate to emotional intelligence. Discuss whether there are specific steps you will take to develop your emotional intelligence and explain why.
- Discuss how you relied on your emotional intelligence in working to identify crises, develop action steps, and collaborate with your group. Provide specific, examples as support.
- Explain the role emotional intelligence has played in your ability to collaborate and perform as a member of an interprofessional team. Provide specific examples that illustrate this.

- Social skills.

Lets look at how you can develop good skills in each area.

Your score is 14 out of 15
In his 1995 book “Emotional Intelligence: Why it can Matter More Than IQ,” Goleman explained that people with high self-awareness are “aware of their moods as they are having them.”
To increase self-awareness , learn about mindfulness . This involves focusing on the present moment including how you’re feeling. And keep a journal in which you write about and analyze the emotional situations you experience from day to day.
You also need to understand your strengths and weaknesses to build self-awareness. Do a personal SWOT analysis , and ask for feedback from your boss, friends, and trusted colleagues to find out how you can improve further.

Self-regulation is about staying in control. To develop your skills in this area, learn how to manage your emotions effectively.
If you often get angry , note what triggers this feeling, and think about why this happens. Use techniques such as deep breathing to calm yourself down, and give yourself time to pause before you respond to emails or requests, so that you don’t say something that you’ll later regret. (See our article on anger management to learn more about this.)
You may also be affected by other negative feelings and emotions, such as anxiety and stress . So, do what you can to manage these feelings effectively.
Accountability is another important element of self-regulation. Take responsibility for your actions and behaviors, and make sure that these align with your values .

Self-motivation is strongly affected by your emotions. When you’re distracted by your emotions, you may find it hard to see tasks through.
Boost your motivation levels by developing self-discipline , and by looking for and celebrating small wins simple jobs that, when you’ve completed them, give you a sense of achievement.
Also, set yourself longer-term goals . When you decide what you want to achieve, you’ll focus on what really matters to you. This can be highly motivating, especially when you connect personal goals with career-related ones.
If you’re still struggling to get motivated in your current role, take some time to rediscover your purpose .

Empathy is the ability to recognize other people’s emotions and understand their perspectives. Goleman calls this aspect of EI “the fundamental people skill.”
To develop empathy , start by simply thinking about other people’s viewpoints. Imagine how they may be feeling, and use active listening skills to understand them fully when they express their emotions to you.
Try not to interrupt or talk about your own feelings during the conversation. Look at their body language , too: it can tell you a lot about their emotions. If you watch and listen to others, you’ll quickly become attuned to how they feel. (The Perceptual Positions technique can give you a particularly sharp insight into what other people may be thinking and feeling.)
If you’re a leader, read our article “What’s Empathy Got to do With it?” for tips on using empathy in leadership.

Even if you’re not a natural “people person,” it is possible to develop better social skills.
The Leadership Motivation Assessment: Score 62 ” This implies a strong motivation to lead.” ” If you’ve found that you are strongly motivated to lead, and you’re already a leader great! If you’re not already a leader, this is definitely an area you should investigate as you plan your career.
Your score shows that you want to be a leader and that you’ve got the confidence to do it. So, what are your next steps to realizing that ambition? First, learn the foundations of leadership with our article, Core Leadership Theories , and, as we mentioned above, demonstrate Transformational Leadership .”
Leadership style from assessment: Score: 23 “You lean toward a democratic or participative style of leadership. You tend to set the parameters for the work and have the final say on decisions, but you actively involve your team members in the process.
This style can build trust between you and your people, as they’ll likely feel engaged and valued. But it’s not great in a high-pressure situation that requires a fast turnaround, as it will slow you down. And, if you dislike disagreement or conflict, you might struggle with how people respond to consultation. Read more below.”

I am a stickler for good organization in everything. I do not want to have to dig for your answers. For instance, if an assignment asks you to provide three examples of something, I suggest that you number them 1-3 so I can find them easily. I also expect that when you submit something as a narrative, you pay attention to how you organize your thoughts: use paragraphs with a topic sentence and supporting sentences; and change paragraphs whenever you introduce a new idea. Also, if there are multiple parts to an assignment, use sub-heads within the paper to organize them.
To get maximum points you need to follow the requirements listed for this assignments 1) look at the word/page limits 2) review and follow APA rules 3) create subheadings to identify the key sections you are presenting and 4) Free from typographical and sentence construction errors.
