Commitment, the ability to act deliberately

Emotional competencies that leaders need

Awareness of emotions is the first of the 12 competencies that P. T. Joseph lists in EQ and Leadership. This is the ability to recognise and name one's feelings, the author explains. “It is not only awareness of one's feelings and emotions, but also the ability to differentiate between them and to identify their cause. Serious deficiencies in this area are found in alexithymic (inability to express feelings verbally) conditions.”
