Emotional Intelligence: A Pathway to Self-Understanding and Improved Leadership Capacities
In 1995, Goleman wrote his book, Emotional Intelligence, based upon Salovey and Mayer's (1990) work. Since then, emotional intelligence (EQ) has become one of the hottest leadership topics in corporate America and has filtered into the not-for-profit and educational arenas as well. It is through an individual's emotional intelligence that he/she will be able to deal with life and lead others in a more positive manner. This article described the successful incorporation of emotional intelligence training in Ohio State University Extension's leadership training.
