G – Emotional Intelligence Glossary

Goleman model of emotional intelligence: The Goleman model of emotional intelligence views this construct as a wide array of competencies and skills that impact managerial performance, measured by a multi-rater assessment [Boyatzis et al., 2001]. It first appeared in his 1998 book titledWorking with Emotional Intelligence. He developed this concept together with Richard Boyatzis. Boyatzis and Goleman developed a measure, called theEmotional Competence Inventory (ECI), designed assess this conceptual model. Although the original 1998 model comprised 25 factorial components, a series of cluster and factor analyses reduced the number to 18 components (9 of which were statistically confirmed).  This model is composed of a mixture of both emotional and social components.

Goleman model of social intelligence: After he developed his model of “emotional intelligence” in 1998, Daniel Goleman developed a model of “social intelligence” which has been described in a book he published in 2006. While Goleman’s concept of emotional intelligence clearly includes social components, it is important to note that his concept of social intelligence clearly includes emotional components suggesting that there are no substantial differences between the two conceptual components. They are simply two conceptual components of the same construct (emotional-social intelligence), which he agree to after it was conveyed to him by Reuven Bar-On at a meeting of the EI Consortium on the 28th of September 2006 the week Social Intelligence was published. Once again, this confirms Bar-On’s conceptualization of emotional-social intelligence, Gardner’s description of personal intelligences which comprise intrapersonal (emotional) and interpersonal (social) components, as well as a growing body of research findings suggesting that neurologically it is difficult if not impossible to separate these two conceptual parts of the underlying construct.
