The purpose of developing Emotional Self-Awareness is that it allows us to understand how our bodily sensations and our emotions impact ourselves, others, and our environment. Each moment is an opportunity to be self-aware. Thus, the more we practice it, the more proficient we become and the greater our capacity to recognize the space between stimuli and our response to that stimuli, ensuring a more conscious and skillful approach.

Without Emotional Self-Awareness, it is difficult to become proficient in and consistently use the other Emotional and Social Intelligence Competencies.

In Emotional Self-Awareness: A Primer, Daniel Goleman and his colleagues introduce Emotional Intelligence and the Emotional Self-Awareness Competency, laying the foundation for developing Emotional Intelligence in Leadership. This is the first in a series of Primers that explores each of the 12 Emotional and Social Intelligence Leadership Competencies, with a thorough overview of the Competency Model itself.

Daniel Goleman, Richard Boyatzis, Richard Davidson, Vanessa Druskat, and George Kohlrieser explain the Competencies: what they are, why they matter, and how to develop them.

Here's some of what's included:

What is Emotional Intelligence?
Emotional Intelligence Competencies
The Competency Model
Leadership effectiveness and Emotional Intelligence
The brain and body basis for Emotional Self-Awareness
How to know if you're self-aware
Self-Awareness in action
The group equivalent of self-awareness
Whether you are individual looking to elevate your personal performance, a consultant or coach in need of research-based resources, or a head of leadership development in your organization seeking a brief yet informative resource to share with your team, this Primer is for you.
