Scott’s poster provides a five-tier aspectwhere emotional intelligence can be of great importance. These aspects are intra-personal, inter-personal, leadership, and personal leadership and engagement. With regard to intra-personal aspect, the emotional intelligence is important to promote self-awareness while inter-personal aspect of the concept nurtures self-management (Scott, 2009).The emotional intelligence and human connectivity concept is especially an asset in cases where there is need to understand other people and also on situations where healthcare practitioners need to understand a patient’s perspective. Consequently, the concept enables nursing leaders to engage with the nurses to facilitate effective management.
Katherine and Leta as former and currentpresidentof the DC/UOIT Nursing Communityunderstand the importance of the concept of emotional intelligence and human connectivityin nurturing effective leadership to the community (Teaching and learning UOIT, 2012). They are therefore determined to provide effective leadership by instilling the concept into their community and other schools. In doing so, they provide opportunities to the members of their nursing community to share their views. This provides the members with a sense of belonging hence through the concept each member is able to contribute towards different nursing roles and working out challenges within the nursing profession. As such, Katherine and Leta discussions enable one to reflect upon the importance of correlation within the nursing communityregardless of a person’s position.
