Dimension 3: Emotions and Emotional Range

Emotional Intelligence (EI) refers to the ability to recognize, understand, and manage one’s own emotions, while also being able to recognize, understand, and influence the emotions of others. EI means being aware of your current emotional state and the emotional triggers that might derail you. When you can name your emotions, make meaning from what you’re feeling, and exercise emotional self-regulation, you have the essential relational skills which strengthen presence and use of self. Self-reflection and feedback help us understand whether our emotions are supporting or limiting us. Emotions are a “gut” gauge for what really matters. Important matters typically arouse excitement or anxiety. If no emotional energy is present, the idea or activity may not have enough interest to merit investment. If strong emotions are present but disregarded, you may later have to manage the unfinished business of regret or dissatisfaction. (Figure 1.4)
