In a 1998 article "What Makes a Leader?" published in the Harvard Business Review, Daniel Goleman introduced the term "emotional intelligence" to the business community. Goleman described facets of emotional intelligence and how they relate to job performance. In our roundtable we will discuss how facets of emotional intelligence such as self-awareness, empathy and integrity contribute to leadership in the context of teaching and learning. We will address how these attributes can help achieve concrete objectives such as creating a classroom environment conducive to inquiry, establishing and communicating clear expectations, and encouraging appropriate scholarly behavior.
