Course Overview Hi, everyone. My name is Alan Ackmann, and welcome to my course, Self‑assessing Your Emotional Intelligence. I am an instructor at DePaul University in Chicago. Emotional intelligence is a critical aspect of workplace and personal success, allowing you to better manage your own emotions, understand the emotions of others, and manage your relationships. None of that is possible, though, without a thorough and accurate sense of self‑awareness. In this course, therefore, we are going to take you through some of the most critical parts of emotional intelligence self‑assessment. The better you understand yourself, the better you'll understand your relationships and others. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include recognizing signs of high emotional intelligence in others, understanding how you react to other people and situations, exploring your own emotional intelligence fundamentals, and understanding the pros and cons of emotional intelligence tests. By the end of this course, you'll have a greatly improved sense of why you feel the way you do. From here, you should feel comfortable diving into other emotional intelligence courses with courses on Creating an Emotionally Intelligent Workplace, Embracing Change, and Creating Healthy Interpersonal Relationships, among many other courses. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn your emotional life, goals, and influences with the Self‑assessing Your Emotional Intelligence course at Pluralsight.
