The Key Components of Emotional Intelligence for Academic Teams


Learn how to recognize emotions in yourself and others to improve your productivity or prepare for a promotion.

Overview

Academic leaders and faculty members often cite the importance of interpersonal skills when leading an academic unit, managing a research team, or functioning as a productive member of any team or unit in academia. However, emotional intelligence and self-awareness are less commonly mentioned as predictors of success among academic teams.

In this video course, department chairs and faculty will discover the connection between emotional intelligence and individual, team, and department results. Through Daniel Goleman’s four pillars of emotional intelligence, you will get ideas for how to:

  • Manage graduate students, research teams, or labs more effectively
  • Handle conflict and difficult personalities with more ease
  • Mentor and manage graduate students

You will learn Daniel Goleman’s four pillars of emotional intelligence and informally assess your skill in each of these pillars. Once you have a greater awareness of how you “show up” for yourself and others, we’ll offer simple suggestions for how you can manage yourself and your relationships more productively.

Who should attend?

In addition to faculty and department chairs, academic search committees who need to assess the emotional intelligence of candidates may also benefit from this course.
