Health care leaders are expected to be able to enter the workplace, assess priorities, and work with teams to accomplish the organizational mission. Typically, this involves both clinical and financial goals, as well as the motivation of teams to get the work done.
Emotional intelligence (EI) is the ability to perceive emotions (both our own and the emotions of those around us) understand the causes and meanings of different emotions, and use this knowledge of emotions to guide how we think about and respond to people and situations (Salovey, Mayer, & Caruso, 2004). In 1995, Daniel Goleman brought the concept of emotional intelligence into the business world with his book Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ. Goleman’s model defines EI as a blend of skills and characteristics that guide leadership decisions and can influence organizational success. In fact, EI has had a tremendous impact on the business world and many organizations worldwide use EI for hiring, promoting, and developing employees (Goleman, n.d.).
As a health care leader, you will face a variety of obstacles and will need to use leadership skills to move teams forward and overcome barriers. Assessing the environment encompasses the morale and needs of individual team members, as well as perhaps the department or strategic business unit. Effective leaders utilize their natural leadership strengths and can enhance results via integration of personal leadership and emotional intelligence.
