Emotional Intelligence is very important in Project Management. It will help us to improve communications and relationships with our stakeholders and thus increase motivation and productivity.

What is Emotional Intelligence?

It is the ability to monitor one’s own and other’s feelings and emotions, to discriminate among them, and use this information to guide one’s thinking and action.The word “Emotional Intelligence” came up in 1990 with Peter Salovey and John Mayer.

Few people from the cultural, academic or business environment ignore the term or its meaning. And this is mainly due to the work of Daniel Goleman, a researcher and journalist for the New York Times, who brought the subject to the spotlight throughout the world through his work 'Emotional Intelligence' (1995).

Elements of EI

There are many EI models of which some are: Self-Awareness, Self-Regulation, Motivation, Empathy and Social Skills.

A good project manager should definitely have the EI Skill.
