What are the pillars of Emotional Intelligence?
In order to recognize, understand, and manage our emotions we need to dominate the 4 pillars of Emotional Intelligence.
- social awareness
- and relationship management
Below I will briefly describe each one of the pillars: SELF AWARENESS Self Awareness is the conscious understanding of what makes us us. The holistic knowledge of one’s feelings, preferences, dislikes, and experiences. SELF MANAGEMENT Self management is the sense of responsibility over our own behaviour. It is not limited to passive acknowledgement and includes dynamic respability towards one’s wellbeing. SOCIAL AWARENESS Social awareness is skill everyone can cultivate that helps us to emphatize with others by stepping out of our personal perspective. It is about trying to understand the way other people experience life. RELATIONSHIP MANAGEMENT Relationship management is about using your self-awareness, self-management and social awareness to help you and others manage interactions successfully. The pillars are like a domino waterfall, they are connected, they need each other.
There’s no straight forward formula around HOW to cultivate each one of them. We are all different, with different experiences of the world, so the way we grow, the way we learn will be different from person to person. BUT there are key pieces of knowledge that anyone trying to embark on this self-development journey need to obtain. If you are interested in starting to heal the relationship with yourself and return to your core, to what truly matters to you there’s something I want to share with you…
