Your Task

Using the first two of Daniel Goleman’s (2020) Emotional Intelligence (EI) domains of self- awareness and self-management, students are to write an EI self-reflective report. Students are to use a variety of EI development tools and strategies provided during classes to assist in their reflections.

Assessment Description

In this EI self-reflective report students will demonstrate how what they have learned in the first four weeks of the trimester has improved their understanding of EI, in particular their levels of self-awareness and skills in self-management. Students are to refer to the outcomes of the psychometric test (link below) and at least one other of the EI tools (e.g., mindfulness and journaling) to demonstrate their increased knowledge and understanding. Finally, students are to reflect on any implications of their increased EI in their future career as a professional.

LO1:Analyse the key features of emotional intelligence and cultural intelligence, as well as one’s own strengths and weaknesses in relation to EI / CI.
LO2:Apply the concepts of emotional and cultural intelligence to the modern workplace, and the implications for leadership, teams and for transforming organisational cultures.
