Daniel Goleman Introduces Emotional Intelligence
Understanding the Four Attributes of Emotional Intelligence – Part 4: Relationship Management
The last EQ domain that author Daniel Goleman identified is relationship management, and this is where those first three domains all converge. Goleman says the competencies involved in managing relationships include:. Your employees need to understand how they can influence positive connection and teamwork in each of their personal and professional relationships. Managing the health of relationships is a lifelong effort that pays huge dividends in the fulfillment people find at home and at work. Dysfunctions in the workplace often stem from the assumption of ill will running rampant among colleagues and teams. This creates a mindset of people being simply something you have to deal with, rather than interact with, or even enjoy! One of the most toxic ways that poor relationship management manifests at work is through gossip.
It is the bond you build with others over time. You need to be able to see the benefit of connecting with many different people, even those you are not so fond of. Solid relationships are something that should be cherished. They are the result of how you understand people, how you treat them and the history you share. The weaker the connection you have with someone, the harder it is to get your point across. The difference between an interaction and a relationship is frequency. It is a product of the quality, depth and time you spend interacting with another person.

Search Candidates. We have reached the final installment of this blog series on Emotional Intelligence. This installment will focus on relationship management and how self-awareness, self-management, and social awareness are building blocks of relationship management.
Emotional intelligence otherwise known as emotional quotient or EQ is the ability to understand, use, and manage your own emotions in positive ways to relieve stress, communicate effectively, empathize with others, overcome challenges and defuse conflict. Emotional intelligence helps you build stronger relationships, succeed at school and work, and achieve your career and personal goals. It can also help you to connect with your feelings, turn intention into action, and make informed decisions about what matters most to you. You probably know people who are academically brilliant and yet are socially inept and unsuccessful at work or in their personal relationships. IQ and EQ exist in tandem and are most effective when they build off one another.

The final area you need to develop as part of your emotional intelligence and raising your EQ is that of relationship management. This is the ability to be aware of the emotions of those people your interact with and along with your own emotions build a strong working relationship. Relationship Management includes the identification, analysis, and management of relationships with people inside and outside of your team as well as their development through feedback and coaching. It also incorporates your ability to communicate, persuade, and lead others, whilst being direct and honest without alienating people. This is the aspect of your EQ that enables you to succeed in inspiring other people and helping them to reach their full potential. It is also vital in negotiating successfully, resolving conflicts, and working with others toward a shared goal. Your success in this final area is directly correlated to your success in the other three areas because management is all about getting work done through other people, some of whom you have no direct authority over.
