Emotionally Intelligent LeadershipBecause the campus environment provides a rich array of diversity and opportunities for honing leadership skills, college students are in the unique position of having a "learning lab" at their disposal.Emotionally Intelligent Leadership is a groundbreaking book that combines the concepts of emotional intelligence and leadership in one model—emotionally intelligent leadership (EIL). This important resource offers students a practical guide for developing their EIL capacities and emphasizes that leadership is a learnable skill that is based on developing healthy and effective relationships. Step by step, the authors outline the EIL model (consciousness of context, consciousness of self, and consciousness of others) and explore the twenty-one capacities that define the emotionally intelligent leader.Leadership, the authors explain, is within everyone's ability to develop and is not just for those in official roles in formal organizations. The book explores the concept of leadership as a process among people working together productively in the group rather than simply a top-down phenomenon. Emotionally Intelligent Leadership offers a clear and engaging perspective on leadership as well as a practical guide for applying leadership skills. The book offers tools for reflection on the concepts of leadership. It also provides students with exercises to learn more about themselves, work more productively with others, improve relationships, and be more effective in demonstrating their leadership the authorsMarcy Levy Shankman is a professional consultant and founder of MLS Consulting, through which she facilitates leadership development with institutions of higher education, fraternities and sororities, and nonprofit organizations.
