Craft an essay that clearly defines Emotional Intelligence and argues why/how each of the foundation skills in that definition is important. Each topic sentence will answer both the definition (ie what is the skill/how would you recognize it?) and why it is important (how is it valuable/why is it valuable to develop?)
Example: “Self awareness is the ability to self reflect and understand one’s own emotions. We need to develop this skill because it is a foundation to all other EQ skills” (and the body paragraph that follows should go on to explain the definition/illustrate it, as well as explain why/how it is that foundation).
Your essay should be 5 pages in length and MLA style throughout.
