You recently were asked to attend a meeting to discuss the hiring process in your workplace. The Human Resources Director attended and made the following statement: “We obviously want intelligent people, but we also want them to have emotional intelligence”.
What did the HR director mean by that? To learn more about emotional intelligence, explore the sites listed below. Please take one of the Emotional Intelligence (EI) tests. Reflect on your results and explore ways that you might develop an enhanced emotional IQ.
The following sites have informal self – administered surveys that introduce the concept of EI in an interesting and personal way. There are also links at these sites to follow-up on emotional quotient (EQ) assessment and enhancement approaches.
After taking the test, write a 2 – 3 page paper that covers the following:
•Test results and a description of your experience in taking the test – a reflection on the results of the test.
•Explanation of emotional intelligence including examples. Include the theories and ideas around EI.
•Why emotional intelligence is important
•Ways that one can enhance their emotional intelligence
Be sure to document your references using APA format.
