Are you thinking about your EQ?

Leadership encompasses self-management and managing relationships with others. Such a characterization is best known as emotional intelligence. This article identifies the traits that comprise emotional intelligence and suggests which ones might be most important for library directors to possess. The article also compares the emerging set of traits to transformational and transactional leadership in an effort to suggest which traits apply to two other leadership styles.

  1. Actually Lee I am thinking about my EQ/EI. My final class in graduate school is “librarians and leadership” with the book Primal Leadership serving as our textbook. Good stuff.
