Emotional Intelligence? Please Explain!

Professional Speaker-Personal Development-Positive Attitude

I’ve been hearing a lot about Emotional Intelligence and it caught my attention. It didn’t seem like these two words fit together. Emotional comes from the heart; Intelligence comes from the head. So how did they end up in one phrase?

I started to research it and I found it quite fascinating. Everything I read defined EQ (Emotional Intelligence) as being able to understand your own emotions and how they affect the people around you. This in turn helps us all to manage our relationships more effectively. How cool is that? I sure have a few relationships that could use some managing, so I continued my research.

It turns out that EQ is becoming more and more popular in the workplace. It is helping managers better understand their team and what motivates them. It is also showing us all how to develop better work/life balance. It’s pretty powerful stuff.

Then I came across this flowchart that actually helps you perceive, manage and understand your own emotions. I actually found it fun to follow the various lines and arrows, reading the different answers and seeing where I fit in. That’s why I’d like to share it with you: Flowchart.

Take a moment to check it out and see how you can enhance your relationships with others, and more importantly, with yourself.
