Launch Event: Emotional Intelligence

Join Mark Runco from Career Success and Crystal Ott from The College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences as the explore Emotional Intelligence.

Emotional Intelligence refers to the capacity to recognize and manage our own feelings and to recognize and respond effectively to those of others. There are various theorists who have developed models of emotional intelligence. For the purposes of this presentation, Crystal will be using Daniel Goleman’s Emotional Intelligence Quadrant to discuss EQ. It includes self-awareness, social awareness, self-management, and relationship management. Emotional intelligence plays a critical role in one’s ability to be successful in the job search, interview and starting a career.

Research shows that emotional intelligence is a skill that can be improved. This session will use Goleman’s quadrant to walk through various areas that fall under the emotional intelligence umbrella and how improving them could be helpful to your future success.
