The Ability to Manage OneSelf and the Capacity to relate to others.
Emotional and social intelligence has become a catchword over the last few years. Studies found positive relationships between the ability to manage oneself and the quality of social interactions.
Survival and success in life depends on them to a great extent. Evidence from our schools indicates that students lack many of the emotional and social competencies needed for success and effective performance in the workplace. Lack of emotional competence such as self-awareness, self-regulation, self-confidence, self-knowledge, and motivation is evident in most cases. This is followed by a lack of social competence such as the capacity for empathy, effective listening and communication, social skills, maintaining relationship, valuing diversity, and resolving conflict.
