Emotional Intelligence and Growth Mindset
Enthusiasm, passion and a positive attitude towards life demonstrates to others that you have a purpose and a larger mission. The ability to recognize, understand and manage your emotions and those of others, especially while under pressure, showcases your strong leadership skills and can open the doors to tremendous opportunities both at work and in life.
Pyschologist, Dr. Carol Dweck proposes that people have a self-perception about themselves in their personal and professional lives. Having a “fixed mindset” where people believe that their basic qualities, such as intelligence or talent, are simply fixed traits. Alternatively, in a “growth mindset” people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and effort. Having a growth mindset gives us a positive spin on life and a can do it attitude. Such a mindset can increase your personal and interpersonal effectiveness. People with growth mindsets are lifelong learners and are constantly bettering themselves.
