The Importance of a Leader’s EQ

Daniel Goldman has written about emotional intelligence before, but relating EQ to leadership provided ideas for reflection.  Self-awareness, self-management, empathy, and relationships are the four areas highlighted for leaders to develop in their quest for effectiveness.  Just as we tell our teachers: it is all about relationships – the same is true for administrators with teachers.  Without that emotional connection and physical presence, the knowledge and smarts just won’t build the team effort needed to surmount the challenges of education today.
