The strengths-based leadership assessment revealed my strengths to be primarily under relationship building theme. Those strengths include: Empathy, relator, and connectedness. The other two strengths are strategic, under the strategic thinking theme, and restorative, which falls under the executive theme. See the attachment for more details.

Briefly describe the results of your EQ assessment.
My EQ assessment revealed above-average scores in both personal and social competence. The highest score in social awareness and the lowest in self-management. So while my strongest ability lies in accurately reading emotions in others, my weakness is managing my own personal emotional reactions to situations.
Details of what the results of my EQ..FYI only:
Personal competence is the collective power of your self-awareness and self-management skills. It’s how you use emotional intelligence in situations that are more about you privately. Score 80/100.
Self-Awareness: Your ability to accurately perceive your emotions and stay aware of them as they happen. This includes keeping on top of how you tend to respond to specific situations and certain people
Self-Management: Your ability to use awareness of your emotions to stay flexible and positively direct your behavior. This means managing your emotional reactions to all situations and people (Lowest score)
Social competence is the combination of your social awareness and relationship management skills. It’s about how you are with other people. Score 88/100
Social Awareness:Your ability to accurately pick up on emotions in other people and get what is really going on. This often means understanding what other people are thinking and feeling, even if you don’t feel the same way. (Highest score)
Relationship Management: Your ability to use awareness of your emotions and the emotions of others to manage interactions successfully. Letting emotional awareness guide clear communication and effective handling of conflict.
-Identify briefly what you might do to begin to address the conclusion you are
assigned from the Future of Nursing report (see10-3). How will you use
(apply)your identified strengths and emotional intelligence as you consider
ways to address the concern? There are no easy answers to the conclusions
presented, but change can only occur if we recognize there is a concern and
start considering how to begin to find ways to improve. You are asked only
to propose the most basic of a beginning step within your team, organization
or community. Keep your approach simple and concise, a first step only that
might utilize your strengths and emotional intelligence.
A leadership theory must be cited to support the plan you have developed.
Conclusion 10-3: Structural racism, cultural racism, and discrimination exist within nursing as in other professions. Nurses of color experience discrimination and bias within the workplace and educational systems, compounded by the lack of diversity among the nursing workforce and faculty. Nurses, educators, and health care leaders have a responsibility to address structural racism, cultural racism, and discrimination within the nursing profession across educational and practice settings, and to build structures and systems that promote inclusivity and health equity.
-Visionary leaders do not make change alone. What strengths from others do you
need to build a successful team? Any strength taken to excess can become a
weakness. Reflect on how your strengths could potentially weaken your team’s success.
Refer to the assessment findings for guidance. How will you assure your strengths
do not weaken the team?
-Critically analyze the evidence for emotional intelligence. Is emotional intelligence
a valid concept? Note: when you critically analyze a topic you will look at studies
that support and do not support findings related to emotional intelligence. This
section must include citations for the research you analyzed. Offer your opinion of
the value/meaning of emotional intelligence to leadership.
– Discuss the results of your EQ assessment with friends, family, peers, supervisor and/or
your classmates.
Do they agree with findings. If yes, provide one or more examples in support of findings. Make something up.
