My Hobby

One of the favourite things that I enjoy doing is gardening. I like the joy of beholding a blooming garden, a green lawn and greener plants at home. Therefore, it has become my hobby now.
I caught this habit of nurturing plants from my mother. Now with her help and my renewed interest we have managed to maintain a small garden in front of our porch. It has a green carpet of velvet grass and a small trimmed hedge growing around it.
We have also prepared flowerbeds in which we have planted a few rose bushes, lilies, sunflowers, China rose and colourful variety of seasonal flowers. We also have grown gladioli, orchids, chrysanthemums, germaniums, jasmines, ferns and crotons. Recently, bought Christmas tree.

Goleman's Eq Model - Self Assessment

...Self-Assessment on Goleman’s Leadership styles and EQ model MBA XXXX – Leadership Effectiveness By XXXXXXXXXXX Self-Evaluation on the Goleman Leadership styles: One of the key qualities of a leader is the ability to adapt to adverse and challenging situations. During the initial phase of the project that I was leading, many employees new to the organization were added to my team. I had to show authority and create a sense of vision and purpose that would tie up well with the tasks that they were assigned. One way to do that is to give them enough flexibility and decision rights that would aid them in doing a better job. Immediate feedback on the tasks performed created accountability and I took enough pains to constantly praise the team for tasks that were performed above expectations. The challenging change was quickly turned into a favorable atmosphere in which the team thrived. They enjoyed working towards a common purpose. One other attribute that a leader should develop is the ability to help co-workers and coach them to success when they are struggling. There was a team member who got a really low performance rating and was down emotionally unable to find ways to improve. Since I had worked with him for some time, I helped him understand his unique strengths and weaknesses and how well he can tie them up with his personal and career ambitions. I encouraged him to think long-term and gave him challenging assignments and tasks where he can prove his worth. I......

Iq or Eq

...IQ OR EQ? 1 It was long believed that having high IQ (intelligence quotient) is the most influential determiner of achievement in life, especially in business life. Yet it has been recently discussed other factors like EQ (emotional quotient) seems to be more effective in work places. IQ tests measure a person's cognitive ability compared to the population at large. While IQ tests can be quite predictive of general intelligence, it's important to remember that they don't purport to tell the whole story of a person's abilities. 2 IQ claims to measure pure brainpower while EQ embraces a lot more important factors such as sociability, optimism and empathy that have gained significance in workplaces since 1990s. “If you are lucky, your looks, the right contacts and a presentable set of qualifications might get you on the first step of the career ladder. However, it’s some other qualifications that will lift you to the top. Your EQ is the level of your ability to understand others, what motivates them and how to work cooperatively with others.”, says Daniel Goleman in his book Emotional Intelligence, which became a best seller in just two weeks after being published in 1999. 3 According to Howard Gardner, a researcher on EQ, EQ embraces two aspects of intelligence: understanding yourself and others. He also identified five domains of emotional intelligence skills. The first two are self-awareness and self-regulation. Although these two terms are often confused,......

...Essays are generally scholarly pieces of writing written from an author's personal point of view, but the definition is vague, overlapping with those of an article, a pamphlet and a short story. Essays can consist of a number of elements, including: literary criticism, political manifestos, learned arguments, observations of daily life, recollections, and reflections of the author. Almost all modern essays are written in prose, but works in verse have been dubbed essays (e.g. Alexander Pope's An Essay on Criticism and An Essay on Man). While brevity usually defines an essay, voluminous works like John Locke's An Essay Concerning Human Understanding and Thomas Malthus's An Essay on the Principle of Population are counterexamples.

Iq vs Eq

...Leadership: Emotions vs Revolutions What makes a good leader? A question asked by many and answered by many more. What plays more of a role in highly effective leaders, emotions or intellect? Emotional intelligence has everything to do with personal interaction and awareness of self. It is how we influence, how we collaborate, and how we make others feel. When we think of intellect we think of the ability of one to reason and to produce new, unique, and original ideas. Both of these seem like important characteristics of a leader, but which creates a more solid foundation for the transition from a leader to a highly effective leader and thus organizational success? IQ is Nothing Without EQ Daniel Goleman’s article, “The Emotional Intelligence of Leaders” (1998), speaks to the insight that emotional intelligence is a more influencing factor, in comparison to rational intelligence, in, not only, personal leadership success, but also in overall organizational success and that it is an intelligence that can be learned, unlike its intrinsic brother. When looking at individuals in leadership roles, IQ levels are comparable, however, major differences are seen in the levels of emotional intelligence. Goleman cites Garrison Keillor as believing those leaders who possess a higher emotional intelligence level will reap larger rewards. The abilities that differentiate top performers fall within categories that relate to emotional intelligence, rather than field......

...Emotional Intelligence (EI), often measured as an Emotional Intelligence Quotient (EQ), describes an ability, capacity, or skill to perceive, assess, and manage the emotions of one’s self, of others, and of groups. It is a relatively new area of psychological research and the definition of EI is constantly changing. The publication of Daniel Goleman’s best seller “Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ” made the term EI widely popular. Islam also does not lay much emphasis on hereditary intelligence but stresses acquisition of emotional intelligence ,which can be acquired Islam is not just a worship program, but a comprehensive, intelligent and practical life system. Islam respects all the different components of the human being equally and regulates them to their full potential, rather than suppressing them (which hurts the individual), or setting them completely uncontrolled (which causes damage to the community and environment). Emotions are given their due place of importance in all Islamic teachings as fundamental elements of the human soul. Islam teaches moderation in everything, aiming to create equilibrium so that one is always at peace with one’s self, the universe, and Allah. It is advised to avoid extremes in negative or positive emotions, as any extremes are destructive if left uncontrolled. For example, extreme happiness leads to indulgence in excesses to give a false sense of ‘celebration’. While extreme sadness leads to being...

Eq and Iq

...Khemachart Chattrastrai MADS 6600 #1723542 The Difference between Intelligence Quotient (IQ) and Emotional Intelligence Quotient (EQ) Which one is more important than another one for the human life? This question is really interesting. Generally, IQ is the tool that can assess the level of human intelligence. However, EQ is the ability to control, perceive, and evaluate emotions of people. Even though both of them are essential in people’s lives in different aspects, it should be one side that strongly affect to the way of life. Therefore, from my perspective, EQ is more important than IQ by my experiences. From my student life in the past, I have ever studied not only in the intelligent student class, but also in the normal class. There were so many differences between those two kinds. At the first time, I was sent by the teacher to study in the class that was full of so many excellent classmates. A lot of pressures made me feel uncomfortable. They have studied every subject on their own. Even though they had participation some times in the class, I could not feel sincere anymore. After I tried to stay in that serious class for almost one year, I could not do it in the next semester. Therefore, I decided to ask the school to change my classroom. My new classroom was very fantastic. The atmosphere of the class was really different from the previous room that I mentioned before. I got some new friends that I have not known that they will be my best friend forever. My...

Eq+Pq>Iq

...Lloyd 1 Strider Lloyd Dr. Natoli PPD 545 February 23, 2016 Word Count: 1857 EQ + PQ > IQ Currently, the study of human behavior in public organizations is shifting in focus away from the traditional intelligence quotient (IQ), towards the more progressive combination of the emotional quotient (EQ) and passion quotient (PQ) (Ted Talks Psychology, 2013). Although the traditional argument that the IQ of an organization is the most important factor in organizational success, is compelling, contemporary thought posits that EQ and PQ, in combination, are better for evaluating success than IQ. This developing context will be used to support the argument that leadership in public organizations is an interactive phenomenon; it results from the interdependent relationship between self-identity, sensemaking, and ultimately decisionmaking—all of which work in congruence to define the organization culture, form attitudes, direct behavior, and determine the organization’s level of success. In order to elaborate on the interactive phenomenon that argues that the emotional quotient (EQ), plus the passion quotient (PQ), are greater—or have more causative value—than the intelligence quotient (IQ). First, in terms of definitions, the EQ is a way to measure how a person identifies emotions within himself or herself and others, and manages these emotional states to work more efficiently and effectively within an organization (Ben-Zeʼev, 2000, pp. 166167). Next, the PQ, as......

I motivate my soldiers and I track their thoughts to make sure that they don’t start thinking things that could lead them down bad paths such as depression, self-destruction, and suicide. As a leader I am responsible for the well-being of those under my charge and at times that may mean redirecting their thought process. Additionally, as a medical provider, it helps me to do my job as a medic when those around me trust me and I know I can tell them to do something and it will happen. Emotional intelligence can be a great gift and tool for those who choose to master it. It can take a lifetime to master but the benefits outweigh the cost of not knowing what is happening inside you and those you love. References Free EQ test results. (2014, March 28).
