Do You Have Emotional Intelligence?
Do You Know What It Is?
Emotional Intelligence (EI) is the ability to understand and manage your own emotions, as well as understand and influence the emotions and behaviors of others.
EI consists of Self-Awareness, Self-Management, Social Awareness, and Relationship Management.
Using DentalPost's FREE EI Assessment, you will find out where you rank, to learn your strengths and areas for improvement. EI is extremely important in healthcare to take care of patients in the best way possible.
There are subtle cues that will alert you to a patient's well-being, including their comfort level, boundaries, and undiagnosed illnesses that need to be addressed. After taking the EI assessment, we will help you understand your limitations to improve your score and your care, both improving your life and your patients' lives as well.
What is Self-Awareness?
Self-awareness is the ability to recognize and understand your own feelings in the moment. This includes being aware of your emotions, what causes specific emotions, and being able to control your emotions when given the opportunity. It also includes accurately knowing your strengths and limitations and having a desire for self-improvement, learning, and accepting honest feedback.
What is Self-Management?
Effective self-management is the awareness of your own emotions, directing behavior and positive decision-making. This includes aspects of controlling negative behaviors that are driven by emotions, as well as being able to remain flexible and adaptable in response to the circumstances of a given situation.
What is Social Awareness?
Positive social awareness gives you the ability to understand people's emotions and perspectives. This includes the anticipation of others' feelings, showing empathy, and understanding their needs.
