This self-assessment questionnaire is designed to get you thinking about the various
competences of emotional intelligence as they apply to you.
Daniel Goleman first brought ‘emotional intelligence’ to a wide audience with his 1995 book of that
name. He found that while the qualities traditionally associated with leadership such as intelligence,
toughness, determination and vision are required for success, they are insufficient. Truly effective
leaders are also distinguished by a high degree of emotional intelligence, which includes:
Self-awareness
The ability to recognise what you are feeling, to understand your habitual emotional responses to
events and to recognise how your emotions affect your behaviour and performance.
When you are self-aware, you see yourself as others see you, and have a good sense of
your own abilities and current limitations.
Managing emotions
The ability to stay focused and think clearly even when experiencing powerful emotions.
Being able to manage your own emotional state is essential for taking responsibility for your
actions, and can save you from hasty decisions that you later regret.
Motivating oneself
The ability to use your deepest emotions to move and guide you towards your goals. This
ability enables you to take the initiative and to persevere in the face of obstacles and setbacks.
Empathy
The ability to sense, understand and respond to what other people are feeling. Self-
awareness is essential to having empathy with others. If you are not aware of your own
emotions, you will not be able to read the emotions of others.
Social Skill
The ability to manage, influence and inspire emotions in others.
Being able to handle emotions in relationships and being able to influence and inspire others
are essential foundation skills for successful teamwork and leadership.
