Four Dimensions of Emotional Intelligence The creation of resonance is a hallmark of primal leadership that can only be fostered by emotionally intelligent leaders. For a leader to promote prime resonance in a group, it is important to understand four EI competencies. Interestingly, these competencies are not innately inherent but are learned abilities. According to research, an effective leader typically demonstrates at least one competence among four dimensions.

The Five Discoveries of Self-Directed Learning 1. First Discovery: My ideal self – Who do I want to be? 2. Second Discovery: My real self – Who am I? What are my strengths and gaps? 3. Third Discovery: My learning agenda – How can I build on my strengths while reducing my gaps? 4. Fourth Discovery: Experimenting with and practicing new behaviors, thoughts, and feelings to point of mastery. 5.

Final Notes Primal leadership is anchored on emotions. These emotions have underlying neurological explanations to them such as open loop system. Thus, a leader must work hard to obtain emotional intelligence competencies that will make him a resonant leader because resonance is key to primal leadership.
A resonant leader builds a culture of resonance by demonstrating emotionally intelligent abilities that permeate throughout organization. A resonant leader aims to live a resonant life for him and his people in order to make resonant work. It is this kind of work that builds an emotionally intelligent organization – a kind of organization that can survive changing business climate because it has built-in processes that can sustain change.
