The tools of emotional intelligence and interdependence are among the hidden or forgotten competencies of success. Emotional intelligence simply refers to the ability to effectively manage one’s emotions, as well as others’ emotions (Downing, 2010).
The other significant success skill of interdependence is described as the ability to collaborate with others successfully by seeking, receiving, and applying feedback from others (Downing, 2010).
So you may be thinking how do I begin to acquire these skills and enhance the abilities I already have? Rio Salado offers a course to facilitate the development of such competencies called CPD150 Strategies for College Success. Enroll Today.
