Read This Now: E.I. and a Loyal, Motivated Staff

“Emotional Intelligence and a Loyal, Motivated Staff”

I like to use principalaim to highlight an educational perspective that I share or that I am wrestling with. Today’s “Read This Now” features an article about leadership and emotional intelligence from Emotional Intelligence guru, Daniel Goleman. Goleman’s ideas around emotional intelligence have always inspired me because I, too, believe that “people need both emotional intelligence (which includes qualities of self-awareness and managing oneself) as well as social Intelligence (social awareness and managing relationships with others) [in order] to engage and motivate others.” I believe this is especially true for anyone in a position of leadership. Enjoy!  tlb
