Leadership Basics Series: Emotional Intelligence

Emotional Intelligence

Chronic disease prevention and control is a rapidly changing field, and one that relies on transdisciplinary approaches and professionals and stakeholders from a variety of backgrounds working together. It can be a very satisfying and fulfilling field of work and, at the same time, stressful. In this brief lesson, the relationship between emotional intelligence and job satisfaction is explored. There are different types of intelligence, and emotional intelligence is one type that can be used and expanded. Emotional intelligence can also reduce stress through a greater understanding of, and response to, others and one’s own experiences.
