EMOTIONAL-INTELLIGENCE-PRESENTATION Emotional Intelligence and the Trump Administration may not have as much in common as the prior administration of Barak Obama but, the Trump administration does put forth a great opposing view of how emotional intelligence or EI can be understood.  What I am suggesting is having a high EQ as opposed to IQ would serve as an ability allowing you to understand the folks under your leadership and those exposed to the environments, affected by your choice decisions.  No one can read minds, but if you could, reading the minds of a person and understanding exactly why they do what they do, the logical idea in a child’s mind might suggest you’d use that power as a super hero or X Men. I’m not intentionally diverting from political correctness X Lady doesn’t quite have the same conditional tone, does it? But, if you, DNA mutant for good knew when the time called upon your skill as the Emotional Intelligence (EI) hero you would become the ultimate conflict resolution-ist.  And, depending on your quotient or EQ strength you’d become one among the greats.  I’m sure this would be a good point to discuss political views between the former Obama administration and the current Trump administration but, I’m not one to lead you to making the decisions my EQ isn’t quite that high, yet.  But, if you realize which of these characters possessing the greatest skills in leadership would contend with the opposition, draw upon their superlative talents as the EI hero and voilà, the student would emerge to enter the mastery of understanding, emotional intellect would kick in (Trushell, 2004).  Emotional Intelligence is described as ability “to build relationships” (DuBrin, 2012, p. 481).  Although, it would be great to be seen as having superior or super human capabilities as implied by writer John M. Trushell.  Emotional intelligence as a fantasy of American pulp fiction as I allude to in the opening does not totally have to result in fictitious results.

EI, is the motive to engage innate abilities as empathy and trust.  Trust, however has to have some degree of disciplined control.  Among capable leadership and those who are under the subjection EI can produce amazing collaboration and resolution.  EI results in actions performed by and between individuals, groups or organizations making those who take steps to engage “constructive use of … emotion” more effective through their administrative processes (DuBrin, 2012, p.481).  Imagine the difference among subordinate members of a group who have two persons to follow.  One person is seen among the group as a leader and the other person is seen as an authority figure but, not a leader.  The superior individual with the highest level of EI would be described as the person viewed as being aware of the needs of the subordinates.  And, the title of leader may apply to anyone among this group possessing the advantage of emotional trust from members of the group.  Identifying the second category of highly ranked heroes of administration can be difficult since, they aren’t necessarily specified by managerial appointment they are recognized by the way their peers engage with them.

Scores that have been adopted to measure a level of emotional intelligence such as MSCEIT, its scoring process determines a person’s EI based on a scale identified as a quotient.  There are highly questionable methods to these measurements.  Measurements that could determine if a person is able to control their anger must take into consideration more than the scope of anger management tools as psychometric assessments as the, HCR-20.  Mayer, Salovey, Caruso & Sitarenios, (2003) contend there are concerns regarding the reliability of such tests.  They challenge validity of emotional intelligence itself and whether results of tests will provide consistent results.  In my own self-examination, I have been evaluated a having “Good EQ”, in theory.  I do believe I have some degree of leadership abilities which would support good EQ results.   However, I don’t believe my results would replicate if I would take a similar study under slightly different questions or different demands they might indicate some similarity but highly unlikely to be the same.  DuBrin (2012) describes this as an ability to connect with people and understand their emotions” (p. 162).  Is it truly necessary to connect?  I believe having what is described to be emotional intelligence leads to a better understanding of what makes a great leader, better.  Connecting to people is essential to administration and leadership even though EI claims are made to imply being first in this regard scientist credit Darwinian ideals as emotional expression as the central token of adaptive leadership traits.  For further edification, I have taken liberty to provide you with reference resources, until next time I sit with my pen – ENJOY THE SITES!
