Emotional Intelligence

Emotional Intelligence is the Other Kind of Smart

When emotional intelligence first appeared to the masses in 1995, it served as the missing link in a peculiar finding: people with average IQs outperform those with the highest IQs 70% of the time. This anomaly threw a massive wrench into what many people had always assumed was the sole source of success—IQ. Decades of research now point to emotional intelligence as the critical factor that sets star performers apart from the rest of the pack.

Emotional intelligence is the “something” in each of us that is a bit intangible. It affects how we manage behavior, navigate social complexities, and make personal decisions that achieve positive results. Emotional intelligence is made up of four core skills that pair up under two primary competencies: personal competence and social competence.

Personal competence is made up of your self-awareness and self-management skills, which focus more on you individually than on your interactions with other people. Personal competence is your ability to stay aware of your emotions and manage your behavior and tendencies.

  • Self-Awareness: Your ability to accurately perceive your emotions and stay aware of them as they happen.
  • Self-Management: Your ability to use awareness of your emotions to stay flexible and positively direct them.

Social competence: Made up of your social awareness and relationship management skills; social competence is your ability to understand other people’s moods, behavior, and motives in order to improve the quality of your relationships.

  • Social-Awareness: Awareness of the emotions of other people including unspoken cues and the mood in the room gives you the information you need to…
  • Relationship Management is your ability to use awareness of your emotions and the others’ emotions to manage interactions successfully.

Developing Emotional Intelligence

Train your EQ brain

You know emotional intelligence matters, and you have begun to practice. Now you need to learn how to tackle the barriers to self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and managing relationships.

Self-Awareness – Achieve a deeper awareness of your emotions by leaning into the discomfort of those that get in your way. How well do you understand yourself under stress?

Self-Management- Knowing you should self-manage is easier than doing it well. Take control of the key driver of words and actions you later regret — your self-talk.

Social Awareness – Mastering the art of social awareness comes from analyzing what the people and situations in your work life that matter most have to offer you.

Relationship Management – When conflict ensues, the emotions that emerge before, during and after the conflict are what people fear most. Turns out, a whole host of EQ strategies can help you.

Anyone who gives ongoing attention to practicing their EQ skills will increase their self-knowledge and ability to handle stress, communicate effectively, make good decisions, manage conflict, be a team player, respond flexibly to change, influence others, and provide top-notch performance. This program has one purpose…TO INCREASE YOUR EQ.
