What do emotional and spiritual intelligence have to do with the eminently practical field of project management? Actually, quite a lot, says Dereje Tessema, Ph.D., an instructor in Georgetown’s graduate program in Project Management and the creator of the Emotionally Competent Leadership Framework. “Emotional intelligence is the ability to identify, access, manage, and control one’s emotions” and then use this insight to guide one’s thinking and actions, Tesseman says. Here, he talks with George Moschoglou, Ph.D., faculty director of the Project Management program, about the impact that emotionally and spiritually aware leaders can have on their colleagues, their organization, and the nation.
