Enhance Your Emotional Intelligence

Emotional intelligence is about people. And so is talent development (TD). For TD professionals to succeed, they must be comfortable with all aspects of working with people. The best tool for their success is emotional intelligence.

Part of the ATD Soft Skills Series, Emotional Intelligence in Talent Development is your resource for developing your emotional intelligence skills. Expert Patrick Malone explains emotional intelligence and explores its five dimensions: self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skills. He examines why emotional intelligence matters to the self, to organizations, and to your business, along with the barriers you face when building these competencies.

While improving your emotional intelligence can seem daunting, Malone demonstrates that developing strong emotional intelligence is attainable by examining real-world challenges that TD professionals face. Learn how to manage the stress of constantly doing more with less; focus on one task at a time and do it well; effectively communicate your message; and identify and address conflict.

Included are reflection questions and exercises to practice and test your development.
