These inward dimensions of EQ, self-awareness, and emotional discipline can seed professional success.
Yes, emotional awareness/emotional discipline are parts of EQ. For instance, if you tend to feel annoyed or angered by a colleague or your boss, it is important to label the feeling, to understand the triggers for this emotion, and how to manage it when engaging with this individual.
Emotional intelligence means understanding people, including ourselves.
Orbé-Austin explains: “To be emotionally disciplined means to recognize how to handle different emotions at certain times. For instance, if you are receiving critical feedback, while it may be upsetting, it is important to know that it may not serve you well to respond in an angry manner. Emotional discipline allows you to respond appropriately to the expectations of the setting and the audience, to make the impression you wish to make.”
Enacting emotional discipline is a practiced skill, and it can be especially helpful for leaders.
Orbé-Austin points out, “As a leader, part of emotional discipline is to model suitable behavior. For instance, during a crisis, your team may not want you to appear overwhelmed or out of control. You might talk about the challenges and some of your concerns, but it may need to be in a measured way, which provides confidence and hope to your team.”
