In emotional intelligence test, we simple describe the feelings of different people by seeing their picture, which means we judge through physical appearance and face expressions. Our answer shows how much positive our thinking is and how much we focus on feelings of others. This thing also important while working in an organization because in most of cases suppliers or client may not willing to fulfill our requirements but they didn’t say this in words ,so we can judge this thing through their expressions and physical points which clearly show their problematic issue. Emotional intelligence is your physical judgment through others which helps you to take any decision.
In leadership assessment, we see that a leader is a role model for all the people, they want to run on his given track, they follow his instructions and only his authority holds everywhere. This thing is good to some extend because in organizations, for achieving required targets and goals on specified time it is important to guide people and give them proper instructions. But with the passage of time, this trend is going to change. People follow someone but with this they also want to take decision according to their skills and knowledge. They want some authority to do any required task which shows good results on their working ability.
In decision making assessment, we talk about an executive level manager who is responsible to take the decision at every step. In organizations, normally all the executive level decisions, targets, goals are set by high level management. Employees have to follow the rules and regulations and work according to given path provided by senior management. Proper investment involves in businesses, a major level of production or supplies happened in organizations, so accurate and right decision on exact time is important. Right decision on right time may lead you to success or vise versa. Therefore it’s a responsibility of managers to take decision according to situation and also provide some authority to junior level according to need and which may no effect the major decisions of organization.
- How does assessment inform the following questions: how do emotional intelligence, leadership and decision making contribute to the effectiveness of one’s role in an organization? What common biases might impact decision making? How can one become a more effective leader and decision maker?
If a person is an executive post in organization then he has to follow this entire thing while performing his duty. It means by keeping emotional intelligence in his mind, he has to become a leader and a good decision maker for organization and for employees who work under that person. As a leader he set all goals and targets, provide a proper path to employees to work according to that path, tell them benefits and how much it helps to achieve our targets, teach them how to work, resolve their all problems relating to specific tasks, with this also as a decision maker take better decision for hiring staff or employees according to their skills and abilities. Business is successful only because of right decision and proper hardworking from all employees. Seniors must guide their all employees, focus on their problems, issues should be sort out, because for achieving any target you have to need a good team, good team is made only if all employees having same loyalty with work and they work with interest and support and help each other as a group. Therefore, the qualities of good leadership and decision maker mostly present in many people but the main thing is to utilize these skills according to managing time and requirement.
