Managing Self for Leadership – Emotional Intelligence

On the outset the core of good leadership for managing teams one leads are the skills for managing self. Some of the ideal skills on managing self include emotional competencies, time management, and communication skills with sharp focus on listening skills.

It has been reinforced through research that Social and Emotional abilities are found to be four times more important than Intelligence Quotient (IQ) in determining professional success. The person's ability to perceive, identify and manage emotions is the basis for social and emotional competencies that are important for success in almost any vocation.

An important aspect of emotional competencies is that these can be acquired at any stage in life, provided one is ready to learn. Aristotle highlighted the importance of emotional competencies when he said, “Anyone can become angry – that is easy. But to be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose and in the right way – this is not easy.”

To attain emotional competencies an individual has to realize:

  • Self-Awareness: Knowing one's emotions.
  • Embark on self-management.
  • Inculcate Social awareness or reading others’ emotions.
  • Develop relationship management or managing others’ emotions.
  • Believe in delegation of responsibilities.
  • Know how to manage time.
  • Be an active listener.
  • Skills for managing self are very important to become a successful leader. Follow the above small but important steps to generate emotional competencies, time management and listening skills and be successful in your career.
