EQ is the acronym for Emotional Intelligence. So not only do you and I have an IQ (Intelligence Quotient), we also have emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence is not about traditional intelligence. It is about our ability to handle ourselves and others. It is all about our ability to get along with others and build relationships.

The concept of EQ was introduced by Daniel Goleman in 1995. His book (also called Emotional Intelligence), helped us to understand that it is not just technical and analytical abilities that make a successful leader. Yes these are important qualities. But the most successful leaders also have a high degree of emotional intelligence.  There have also been some excellent articles on EQ in the "PM Network" magazine published by the Project Management Institute.
Here is the great news; EQ (unlike IQ) can be developed.
'EQ for Project Managers' will give you an understanding of the five components of Emotional Intelligence and help you identify tools to boost your own EQ.

What are the five components?

Self-Awareness - A person who is self-aware understands their own moods and emotions and also how those moods and emotions may impact others.

Self-Regulation - Someone who exhibits self-regulation thinks before they act. Remember that person you worked for? The one who used to get red in the face, yell and scream and throw notebooks across the room? They were not exhibiting self-regulation at all.

Motivation - If you love to work and it is not just for money or for status; if you have a strong drive to achieve; then you know about motivation.

Empathy - The empathetic individual is able to understand the emotions of others and also learns to treat them as they wish to be treated.

Social Skill - Do you know someone who is able to meet new people and immediately develop a rapport with them? It is likely that they are very accomplished in the area of social skill.
Together we will discuss the five components and how you can grow your emotional intelligence right now!



About Margaret Meloni

In her more than 18 years in Corporate America which included roles in Fortune 500 management, Margaret Meloni observed how individuals who learned to cope with conflict succeeded and recognized their full potential, while others became road blocked. Margaret developed a passionate belief that it takes courage and skill to be human at work and that all individuals have a responsibility to treat each other with dignity, respect and compassion. Her vision is to create a group of successful individuals who are at peace with their authentic selves; a group of individuals who help and support others; a group who bring humanity to the office and thrive because of it. Margaret sees a world where achieving
peace and achieving success go hand-inhand. As a former Information Technology Executive, Margaret always knew that her preference was for the people behind the technology. Now Margaret brings these beliefs to individuals from many professional backgrounds. The common thread across her client base is the desire to experience peace at work and the recognition that peace is not absence of conflict, peace is the ability to cope with conflict. For these people, Margaret Meloni is truly ‘A Path to Peace’. ™
