Using Emotional Intelligence to Keep Calm Under Pressure

Five Factors of Emotional Intelligence

Have you ever been in a situation where your emotions are clouding your ability to think straight, see things clearly, or make good decisions? Your emotions, when not effectively managed, can challenge your judgment and make regular activities difficult.

There are four main pillars that support a healthy emotional intellect.

People with a High Level of Emotional Intelligence:

Are Self-Aware.

Instead of just feeling without understanding the source, they can trace their emotions back to their origins and see them logically. They also have a realistic grasp of their strengths and weaknesses.

Conduct Self-Management.

They can rein themselves in, delay gratification, account for the needs of others, and balance their desires accordingly. They can also walk the middle ground between initiative and patience. They handle change well and follow through with commitments.

Are Socially Aware.

They understand and tune into other people's emotions and can adapt to unspoken social cues. They can also see the interpersonal interactions within groups and larger organizations.

Excel in Building Positive Relationships.

They just play well with others, inspire and influence people positively, communicate well, and manage conflict proactively.
