This theory explains the need of self awareness and how it will be useful in leading a better life. According to this theory, one can develop interpersonal skills. A person should co-operate with his team members and must be a good team player. If a person following Holland's theory will have a strong career and will find it easy to develop his skills. This will help in minimizing the problems with in colleagues.
This theory will guide in enhancing one's personality in terms of his behavior, skills and growth in career. Without self awareness, a person cannot progress in career, as they find it difficult to move well with others and unable to carve a niche for himself. Holland's theory of career development comprises of two categories that helps in achieving careers that are stable. Aim of his theory is to enhance people's interests and help them pursue in their career which leads to success. According to Daniel Goleman(1995), emotional intelligence plays a vital role in self awareness and career development. Emotional intelligence sharpens one's attitude of analyzing others. (Goleman 1995). This theory
Emotional intelligence helps a complete organizational process, right from the selecting a candidate, conducting test and interviews and appointing him in a correct job. It takes care of client's service and the client's relationship with the manufacturer. Almost all the organizational activities can be done in a perfect manner by following this theory. Theory on emotional intelligence can be used to know the abilities and capacity of an employee. This paves the way to a successful career.

The second category emphasizes on knowing other's feelings and behavior. The important concept of this theory is self motivation, managing and understanding own emotions. Relationship management and managing other's emotions are also a part of emotional intelligence theory. All this in turn leads to self awareness and enhances social skills too. By increasing the emotional intelligence one can be more successful in his career. I personally feel that, Goleman's theory concentrates only on emotional aspects, but in lacks in describing the situational aspects. Though behavior is an important part,
knowing only that is not sufficient in developing self awareness. This theory is useful only to understand our own behavior.
As mentioned by Albert Bandura (1995), self efficacy is one of the major qualities one should definitely possess. Efficacy is, having a trust in oneself and faith in his abilities to control and manage. One should believe in his talent so that he can excel in his life. (Bandura 1995). In a problematic situation, how a person reacts and behaves also comes under efficacy. One can have a control on his behavior and is responsible for his normal
