Developing Self-Reliance

RocheMartin defines Emotional Intelligence by a set of 10 competencies and this is one in a series of blogs covering each one.

Self-Reliance is the ability to back yourself, take responsibility for your actions and what happens as a result

The 3 components of Self-Reliance are

  • Independence

  • You don’t rely on anyone else for what you need. You can think and decide for yourself.

  • Self-Belief

  • You are happy to act on what you think is the right choice.

  • This requires Self-Confidence, an emotional intelligence competency in its own right and covered in this blog.

  • Responsibility

  • ...and you take responsibility for your actions and are accountable for what happens as a result.
