‘Emotional Intelligence Can Boost Your Career And Save Your Life‘
by Dr Travis Bradberry
We cover emotional intelligence in Fundamental Communication Skills so I’m not going to say too much here except to say that the post on LinkedIn by Dr Bradberry is an interesting and thought-provoking introduction to the possible benefits to you of this aspect of intelligence. Emotional intelligence is not just useful for yourself however but will make you a better nurse, hence it is an important factor in your ability to deliver effective care to your patients. Also on this topic ‘Emotional Intelligence’ by Daniel Goleman is definitely worth a read (yes, all of it!). For students at BU it’s available in the library. Happy reading.
