Emotional Intelligence and Leadership

Emotional Intelligence and Leadership
Emotional intelligence is recognised as having the ability to monitor our own other people’s feelings and to use this knowledge to guide ones thinking and actions. We make decisions not only based on outcomes but also the emotional qualities associated with the decision. Emotional intelligence is a set of skills that scaffold leadership and the safe delivery of care in the NHS. Self-awareness and Self-management are personal competencies that can be developed to support you in your leadership journey. Social awareness and Relationship management are social competencies that are recognised too.
