We are many individuals, but One NSU. At its core, Emotional Intelligence is your ability to recognize, understand, and manage your own emotions while also being considerate and responsive to the emotions of others. In short, it's about being tuned in—both to yourself and the people around you. You will find it is essential in core values like Community, Diversity, and Student-Centered.
“ ...our level of emotional intelligence is not fixed genetically, nor does it develop only in early childhood. Unlike IQ, which changes little after our teen years, emotional intelligence seems to be largely learned, and it continues to develop as we go through life and learn from our experiences.”
Daniel Goleman, Author and Psychologist

A key quote that caught my attention was "What does it feel like to be on the other side of your leadership?"
"True leaders understand that leadership is not about them but about those they serve. It is not about exalting themselves but about lifting others up."
