People drive performance, emotions drive people, temperament drives emotions. Emotional Intelligence is achieving self- and social mastery by being smart with core emotions. Self-Mastery = Awareness + Management (Steps 1 & 2 as defined by Goleman) Social Mastery = Empathy + Social Skills (Steps 3 &4 as defined by Goleman However the key to emotional intelligence is understanding your core emotions compared to your transient emotions. Your core emotions are driven by your temperament – what you are genetically born with. Based on a study of 11,000 identical twins nature is around twice as important as nurture. I have found the Humm-Wadsworth model of seven core emotions the most practical tool for people to use and once understood dramatically lifts their emotional intelligence. This book first describes the seven Humm components, then applies it to the four steps of emotional intelligence and finishes with a personality analysis and key decisions in five plays: Antigone, Julius Caesar, Hamlet, King Lear, and Death of a Salesman.
