It also is involved when making presentations or in a leadership position. It is also involved in when trying to convey your point o view to others that may not see it that way.

To be able to utilize your emotions effective by being attentive to the tone and pace while speaking is imperative to be able to get the message across to that person. “a type of intelligence that involves the ability to process emotional information and use it in reasoning and other cognitive activities”(Dictionary.APA.org, 2018). Gaining emotional intelligence can be difficult if an individual isn’t skilled in comprehending emotions. Having the ability to identify and understand emotions displays being aware and sensitive to others emotions. The recommendation I would have for a co-worker would be to facilitate thought using emotions but in order to that to be accomplished, detecting and identifying emotions is key. Later, that co-worker will be able to be effective in emotional management which is essential to communication. Overall, emotional intelligence requires social skills, empathy, and emotional self-awareness.
