Emotional Intelligence (EI) Overview

Developing emotional intelligence and self-efficacy skills has the potential to drive positive and sustainable changes in the female entrepreneurship sector.

In the context of agritourism, where customer satisfaction and community relationships are pivotal, emotional intelligence allows female entrepreneurs to empathize with the diverse needs of their clients and engage effectively with local communities. This empathy fosters trust and loyalty, creating a positive impact on their agritourism businesses.

Additionally, developing self-efficacy skills, especially in the face of challenges unique to rural entrepreneurship, instills confidence in their capabilities. As agritourism entrepreneurs, women often juggle various roles, including managing farms, accommodations, and interactions with tourists. Self-efficacy skills enable them to set realistic goals, persevere in the face of setbacks, and maintain a resilient attitude, crucial for long-term success.
