Leading with Emotional Intelligence

This self-assessment questionnaire is designed to get you thinking about the various competencies of emotional intelligence as they apply to you.

Daniel Goleman first brought ‘emotional intelligence’ to a wide audience with his 1995. He found that while 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 recognize what you are feeling, to understand your habitual emotional responses to events and to recognize how your emotions affect your behavior and performance. When you are self-aware, you see yourself as others see you, and you have a good sense of your own abilities and 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 setback.

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.

Prior to our face-to-face session this week, please complete the following assessment.

Step #1

For the following questionnaire you will assess and score each of the statements. The assessment provides you a range from 1- 5. Score your assessment using a scale where:

1 indicates that the statement does NOT apply at all

indicates that the statement applies about half of the time

5 indicates that the statement ALWAYS applies to you

Step #2

Transfer your scores to the calculation table and total your results. Keep in mind that this is not a psychometric test and the answers you give are likely to vary depending on your mood when you take it.

Scoring Interpretation

This self-assessment questionnaire is designed to measure your authentic leadership by assessing four components of the process: self-awareness, inter- nalized moral perspective, balanced processing, and relational transparency. By comparing your scores on each of these components, you can determine which are your stronger and which are your weaker components in each cat- egory. You can interpret your authentic leadership scores using the following guideline: high = 16–20 and low = 15 and below. Scores in the upper range indicate stronger authentic leadership, whereas scores in the lower range indi- cate weaker authentic leadership.
