Emotional Intelligence provides practical advice and strategies for improving emotional and social intelligence quotients by embodying the disciplines of personal authenticity: unconditional trust, respect, truth, honesty, fairness, care, openness, and forgiveness. Understanding the emotional effects of blame and the importance of personal accountability will lead to learning and professional success. Personal and professional success in a diverse organization depends on the ability to understand, master, and express emotions-that is, self-mastery-and to perceive and respond to the emotions of the people with whom we live, learn, and work-that is, empathy. These two faculties represent our emotional intelligence, the capacity that determines our actions, personal patterns of interactions, and the pattern and quality of all relationships. It is, therefore, essential to establishing success in the diverse workplace. Fundamentally, a community is a system of relationships between people with common interests. Focusing on commonality raises the priority of appreciating and understanding differences, and this priority comes from within a community rather than being imposed on it from outside. Thus, we must move beyond diversity and differences to commonalities as the foundation for building effective organizations and communities. Learn to refocus your organization on commonalities, develop effective strategies for personal accountability, and aim for success with Emotional Intelligence.
