Jovian Concepts has partnered with PBC Guru (Professional Book Club Guru) to engage in a fun and educational form of professional development. PBC chose "Emotional Intelligence 2.0" by Travis Bradberry and Jean Greaves for this quarter's Leadership Team book.
"Emotional Intelligence 2.0" offers a program that will increase your emotional intelligence quotient (EQ) if you utilize four core skills:
1) Self-Awareness: Self-awareness is the foundational emotional intelligence skill. Those with high self-awareness understand what they do well, what motivates them, what brings them fulfillment, and how certain people or situations provoke discord.
2) Self-Management: The authors state "self-management is your ability to use your awareness of your emotions to stay flexible and direct your behaviors positively." It is built upon your self-awareness foundation. It is key for being able to focus on long-term goals.
3) Social Awareness: Social awareness is the ability to objectively understand and respond to the needs of those around you. Those with high social awareness understand what is really happening in a situation.
4) Relationship Management: Using your awareness of emotions to successfully manage your interactions in the moment or over time. This is the most complex part of the emotional intelligence quotient.
