Addressed graduands at TARC Kuala Lumpur Campus:  "Your continuous learning should not be just limited to technical knowledge and IT alone. Research has shown that the single most important factor which distinguishes star performers from others is not IQ, advanced degrees or technical expertise but emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence includes communications and human relations. The higher up in the leadership you go, the more vital these skills become.  Communications and human relations are elements that cannot be neglected. In all organizations and in all professions, you need to communicate and work with your superiors, your colleagues and your subordinates. How well you perform in your job depends to some extent on the work of a web of others who may be your direct or indirect subordinates. With your technical knowledge and people skills or emotional intelligence, I am confident that you can establish yourself and make your mark in the world of work."

President, Hong Kong University of Science & Technology writes:  "Daniel Goleman (author of "Emotional Intelligence") did a terrific job for us...The audience response was very good and the Q & A could have gone on forever.  Although my praise is natural since I agree with most of Daniel's message and have been practicing accordingly for 20 years, it is also representative of the audience of 400.  A real hit a very valuable and timely message for Hong Kong."

A New England Journal of Medicine study on malpractice cases found that about 1% of all hospital patients would have grounds for a malpractice suit, but only a tiny percentage of these patients sue. Doctors that patients don't like get sued more; although their medical skills may be comparable to other doctors'.  The patient feels the doctor didn't care, or didn't listen, or was too busy, or "a machine."

46162298.jpg (2545 bytes)  AND ON THE HIGH SEAS ... THE BT GLOBAL CHALLENGE
Know about the BT Global Challenge?  The world's toughest yacht race, it's sailed "the wrong way 'round the world," embracing the extreme conditions of the world's oceans - from the unpredictable calm of the doldrums to the huge seas, icebergs and gale force winds of the Southern Ocean - the race is an extraordinary test of personality and human endeavour - pushing everyone to the limit. [quote]  It's a 10-month race covering 32,000 miles from Europe to the Americas to Australasia, from Africa back to Europe...circumnavigating the globe against prevailing winds and currents...70-foot waves, 70 knot winds.

Seems a good test of many things, doesn't it?

In the 2000 competition, data on personality, personal competencies, emotional intelligence, motivation and team dynamics were collected from individual skippers and crew... research by Dr. Malcom Higgs and Professor Victor Dulewicz, emotional intelligence experts at Henley Management College, who wanted to find confirm:  "Our current research on managers confirms that it is a combination of not only Emotional Intelligence but also intellectual and management competencies which underpin managerial performance. This project provides an exciting opportunity to see if our findings are borne out in a very different and challenging setting."

Dr. Higgs continued, "The project provides an excellent opportunity to explore team working in extreme conditions and the impact of Emotional Intelligence and other personality factors."

We're trying to find out how it went!

YOUTH AT RISK PORT OF SPAIN
H.S. Kassin and P. Polar write about "Novel Approaches in Education in Trinidad and Tobago," trying to address illiteracy and at-risk youths.  And what do they propose?  "The benefits of chess as a mechanism of promoting emotional intelligence is unequal," they write.  "As a consequence of the inter and intra personal contact that chess provides, a stimulus for emotional intelligence which can increase achievement, motivation, optimism, joy, and purpose, while decreasing violence, depression, and isolation is in place. Emotional intelligence is a positive preventive tool, which properly understood can assist society in solving many of its ills - violence, illness, drug abuse, dysfunctional relationships, and even global societal conflicts. These interpersonal and intra personal skills are critical to all learning, providing tools to children and adults for long-term success. Chess caters to multiple intelligences allows for the transference and development of logical thinking, critical thinking, and creative thinking thereby increasing performance and achievement within the academic environment. Thus all primary and secondary schools, and government tertiary level institutions should be supplied with chess equipment and taught the game as if it were an academic subject."  

We're trying to follow up on this and see how it's going!

46162298.jpg (2545 bytes)  SAN DIEGO ASKS ... VIRGILI SPAIN ANSWERS
On a list on emotional intelligence,  Mark R. Testa, Ph. D., Associate Professor of Management, HTM Program, San Diego State University, listed the qualities of emotional intelligence (transparency, character, adaptability, anger management, self-management, relationship management, service to others, inspirational leadership...) and asked for 'video clips' about emotional intelligence.  

Teresa Torres Universitat Rovira i Virgili Spain, replied she thought "Dinner with Friends," with Andy MacDowell and Denis Quaid was a good clip showing lack of empathy (the link to EI)--The brief dinner scene, she wrote, that's just at the beginning.

46162298.jpg (2545 bytes)  WE'RE NOT FINISHED, WE HAVEN'T HEARD FROM FINLAND YET?
Timo Kultanen, Information Society Research Center, University or Tampere, Finland writes, in a study called "Emotional Intelligence in Superior Knowledge Work," "Last years have been a period of strong growth in Finnish economy,  During the same period knowledge work has increased.  It has been quite easy to sell knowledge work and products [but] this engagement period seem to over for this time...which means that for instance the superior work demands and challenges are increasing."

"in changing and harder competition situation," he adds, "the emotional intelligence skills are coming more important."

He has designed a study to 

  • Describe the impact of the skills of emotional intelligence of superiors on knowledge workers' motivation and engagement

  • Build an emotional intelligence development program to knowledge work superiors

  • Follow and measure the impacts

We await the results!

46162298.jpg (2545 bytes)  L'intelligence émotionelle
L’expression d’intelligence émotionnelle utilisée par eux fut donc popularisée par Goleman, psychologue, professeur à Harvard puis chroniqueur au New York Times, et fit même la une de l’édition américaine de Time. Rappelons que, selon Daniel Goleman, la réussite dépend moins du quotient intellectuel que de l’intelligence émotionnelle fondée sur la compréhension, la maîtrise et l’utilisation des émotions, qualités que chacun de nous peut acquérir, ce qui est plutôt une bonne nouvelle. La différence entre les individus se fait donc au niveau de la conscience de soi, de la confiance en soi, du self-control, de la motivation, de l’empathie et de la capacité à communiquer (et à influencer les autres).  -- "L'Expansion Management Review,"  France
