The Concept of Emotional Competencies

There is an emerging usage referred to as emotional competencies. Emotional competencies are those skills exhibited by an individual in order to get along well with colleagues and superiors in the work place or friends in informal relationship. These competencies regulate behavior in different work situations and will have the worker, for example, smile even when common sense would demand crying. The proper uses of these skills enable the individual to focus on the attainment of the greatest goals within the relationship rather than the immediate gratifications of lower order emotional objectives. Emotional competencies relate to skills needed for both inter and intra personal relationships with others as well as self. It is classifiable under Benjamin Bloom et al's affective domain competencies.
