We Had a great presentation today on Emotional Intelligence (EI) at the Learning Technology Leadership institute. The two primary characteristics of EI are Personal (understanding oneself) and Social (empathy and political awareness). It made me think about successful projects and collaborations I have had in the past. I may not have been aware of it at the time but these interactions required the ability to traverse various emotional landscapes in very short periods of time. It amazes me how truly complex human interactions really are!
