This is the first book for students that combines the concepts of emotional intelligence (EI) and leadership into one model of Emotionally Intelligent Leadership (EIL). The EIL model is defined as consciousness of context, consciousness of self, and consciousness of others, and each chapter represents one of the twenty-one defined skills that make up this triad. The book provides students with a clear and engaging theoretical perspective as well as practical application. It also encourages purposeful reflection of the concepts presented and provides students with tools to learn more about themselves, work more productively with others, improve relationships, and be more effective in a leadership capacity.
