Our natural state of being, as one with Soul, is a harmonious state of Love, in which the only feelings are of continuous peace and bliss. Therefore if we are feeling any feeling other than peace and bliss, we have got out of balance somewhere. This is due to our conditioned and faulty thinking, which emerges as tolerations, needs and limiting beliefs. Using our Emotional Intelligence equips us to identify the message that Soul is sending us through these feelings, so we can rectify our thinking and thus move always towards Love.

So why is it important that we understand emotional intelligence? Are there different kinds of emotional intelligence? Is there a difference between men and women or between people of different ages, or people doing different kinds of jobs?

Work stress is as old as work itself. And so are the ways we respond. You can just imagine the first cave-clan’s leader spending sleepless nights counting stalactites, worried about how he was going to break the news to UG and the other hunters that the decreasing wild beast population meant they were going to have less to eat. Unfortunately, in today‘s tough times, stress appears to be on the rise. A lukewarm economy and high unemployment suggest that 2011’s numbers aren’t going to improve much. But what if you could reduce stress without having to wait for the economy to improve? A promising stream of research linking emotional intelligence (EQ) to stress-reduction offers exciting new clues about how to beat stress in spite of economic woes.

Emotional intelligence is the ability to recognize, understand, and manage your own emotions and the emotions of other people in positive ways. Today we can clearly see that being only “book smart” and having a high intelligence quotient or IQ does not guarantee a successful, happy and fulfilled life. There are many people in all parts of the world who are very brilliant academically but are inept at dealing with people and successful at work or in their personal relationships. Academic intelligence is not enough on its own to be successful in life. IQ can help you get a job and earn a living, but it does not show you how to live a life. When it comes to happiness and success in life, emotional intelligence helps you build stronger relationships, succeed at work, and achieve your career and personal goals.

For many of us, 2011 began with a promise-a promise that this year we would accomplish that which has eluded us. Often it’s the everyday things that prove most difficult-managing your schedule, treating people the way you ought to, and keeping things in perspective when chaos is at hand. The sad truth is that nearly 80% of us will fall off the resolution bandwagon by Super Bowl Sunday; and by this time next year, a mere 5% of us will have succeeded in reaching our goals.

Joseph Celbert

The term emotional intelligence, shortened as EI, has something to do with the skill, the capability, or aptitude to single out, evaluate, and deal with one’s emotions and the emotions of other people. Contrasting propositions as to how emotional intelligence should be defined and used in the different fields of interest are still on the spotlight.

Colleen Stanley

The challenge facing many sales managers and business owners is the transfer of selling skills that made them a top sales producer to their sales team. When you take on the role of a sales manager, it’s no longer about what you can produce; it’s about what you can get others to produce.

 

Eileen Woodford

Have you ever worked in an environment in which the atmosphere was tense, due to the unpredictable behaviour of one member? Do you remember (or are you experiencing) the stress that such an atmosphere causes?

 

Carol Chapman

Have you ever experienced a situation as a customer with an employee (of the company you were doing business with) who was just totally unaware? The employee didn’t and couldn’t even recognize their own emotions as they were occurring? You could see it in their face and body language. And as they couldn’t acknowledge their emotions they experienced within themselves, it was impossible for them to manage their emotions as they interacted with you. Has this ever happened to you? Yes, of course! You’ve experienced the same thing over and over again until finally you say “ENOUGH! I can’t take it anymore!”

Byron Stock

By enhancing the Emotional Intelligence (EI) of its employees, an organization can successfully leverage two, key trends identified in Patricia Aburdene’s Megatrends 2010: “The Wave of Conscious Solutions” and “Spirituality in Business.” As we enter this new era welcoming the widespread application of conscious techniques in business, ensure that your organization is an early adopter, reaping the benefits over your competitors who lag behind bogged down with traditional business beliefs.

Naila Iqbal

This paper focuses on the functional linkages of the emotional intelligence (EI) with the mentoring process. It presents a framework of EI as well as that of mentoring process. EI is a type of social intelligence that involves the ability to monitor one’s own and others emotions, to discriminate among them, to use the information to guide one’s thinking and actions. Mentoring is a significant long-term beneficial effect on the life or style of another person. We start by discussing the concept of EI and the concept of Mentoring process. We then explored the components of EI as well as the characteristics of mentors. Subsequently, we reviewed the linkages of the EI components with the characteristics of mentors. Finally, we conclude that in order to be a good mentor, one need to have high EI.

 

Joshua Freedman

Why is “emotional intelligence” attracting so much interest among business leaders? Perhaps because emotionally intelligent leaders improve sales, retain customers, and increase organizational effectiveness. Drawing on case studies and research, EQ expert Joshua Freedman reviews findings on how and why these “soft” skills are driving so much hard performance.

 

Tristan Loo

Having high intelligence does not always breed success. There is another form of intelligence known as emotional intelligence that is arguably of equal or greater importance on your path to success. Learn about emotional intelligence from this article by Personal Development Consultant Tristan Loo.

 

Girija Shanker

We are all familiar with general intelligence (IQ). How many of us know anything about Emotional intelligence (EQ)? Emotional intelligence is the capacity to identify, apply, empathize and manage emotions in positive ways to communicate effectively, understand others, fight challenges, relieve stress and resolve conflict in an intelligent manner.

 

Sven Grams

The importance of EQ (Emotional Quotient) in comparison to IQ in the modern society cannot be under estimated. Its immediate introduction as a core subject in primary and secondary education is overdue and in this article I will not only indicate why, but also address the most common misconceptions against its full implementation as part of our curriculum.

 

Jonathan JJ Jarrell

Over the past two decades, we have seen our HR roles change from being primarily administrative to making strategic decisions regarding our company’s future direction. A key component of this new role is identifying and strategically aligning our talent. The importance of this responsibility cannot be stressed enough, but how do we go about finding the right people?

 

Steve Wickham

Being emotionally intelligent is knowing when and how to express emotion. This definition is simple enough, although it doesn’t fit neatly into the four-pillar arrangement of secular emotional intelligence. But being emotionally intelligent by knowing when and how to express emotion implies an acute level of personal and social awareness and management.

 

Christina Lattimer

As Leaders and Managers we know that emotional intelligence is key to getting and sustaining great results from our teams. As a Leader and Manager for some 30 years, I have practiced and observed attitudes and behaviours which have been the most successful in getting the best out of a team.

 

Adam Bauthues

Have you ever watched someone who graduated top of their class, who was extremely intelligent, become a failure, over and over again in business? And how about those other people with moderate intelligence literally building empires and changing the very face of the world in the process? You may be wondering why it works this way…Here is the deal…

 

Colette Lees

In order to raise your Emotional Intelligence level, you must become self-aware of the emotions that you are experiencing at any given time, and you must also deal with emotions that you have suppressed in an effort to avoid dealing with them. It is a common tendency to want to push down a certain emotion or to convince yourself that you are not experiencing a particular emotion because it is uncomfortable or for some reason that emotion seems inappropriate under the circumstances. Emotional Intelligence requires that you know your own emotions and that you know how to manage them.

 

Dr. Jim Anderson

It turns out that the best speakers DO know what their audience is thinking and they DO adjust their speeches to match this. You can do it also – you just need to have emotional intelligence.

 

Tracy Bedwell

The concepts of Emotional Intelligence are not new, with research going back to the early part of the 20th century. The term “Emotional Intelligence” was introduced by Salovey and Mayer in 1990.

 

Mike Logan

Emotional Intelligence Skills involve brain fitness? According to Simon Evans, Ph.D. and Paul Burghardt, Ph.D., the answer is yes, and here is what they say.

 

Ronald Fitzgerald

A practical combination of interpersonal intelligence and intrapersonal intelligence is called emotional intelligence. The important model on which this article is based was defined by Daniel Goleman in his great book emotional intelligence.

 

Dr Jeff Bailey

Emotional intelligence is an attractive concept that people want to know and understand. More importantly, in terms of stress management and workplace stress, understanding and being able to build emotional intelligence should make people’s work lives more satisfying and less stressful. Here are some useful tips.

 

Sanjay Behuria

How do conversations become difficult? How can we bring in consciousness to our daily conversations – so that our relationships are enhanced with understanding, compassion and empathy?

 

Maynard Brusman

Good interpersonal skills are important to your success. We often work in groups or as part of a team. You need to work effectively with people who have different personalities, motivations and work habits. Developing emotional intelligence and social intelligence competence can help leaders be more successful.

Jayalakshmi Anshuman

There are Leaders and there are GREAT Leaders! So what differentiates a Great Leader from the rest? A great and effective leader has a high level of Emotional Intelligence.

Stephen Blakesley

Emotional Intelligence is a critical skill when it comes to identifying leadership potential. You cannot be a great leader without high levels of Emotional Intelligence. We have identified 8 emotional skills that are essential to superior leaders at all levels. Now you can measure potential and coach to improved results using a simple self-assessment.

 

Colette Lees

Raising your level of Emotional Intelligence, your Emotional Quotient or “EQ”, requires the mastery of a specific set of emotional and relational skills. Just as you need certain skills to safely operate a car, or to teach someone else to do so, you need to learn and develop emotional intelligence skills so that you can effectively work with and manage your own emotions and so that you can work productively with others and the emotions that they bring to the relationship.

 

Greg Frost

Emotional intelligence is a term that refers to the ability an individual possesses when it comes to perceiving, evaluating as well as controlling their emotions. It tends to be innate, meaning every individual is born with it. Through studies, it is thought that with certain tips on enhancing your mind power, an individual can master the art of learning and also strengthening their emotional intelligence.

 

J Daniel Hollinger

School leaders must be emotionally intelligent to lead schools successfully. We know that emotional intelligence drives success in the business world and in our personal lives with family and friends. Given that schools are undoubtedly among the most emotionally complex institutions of the face of the earth, it follows that school leaders must be emotionally intelligent to lead effectively.

 

Ryan McSparran

When psychologist and author Daniel Goleman published his book, Emotional Intelligence, in 1996, few might have predicted how great of an impact it would have on the business world. Emotional Intelligence has moved beyond the image of a fad and has proven to be an avenue for increased success in the workplace and leadership development. Goleman’s research has truly revolutionized the way most companies approach training and development.

Mihai Dumbrava

Sometimes, even if the employees try to change their attitude and try to improve their emotional intelligence, the organization they work in doesn’t change at all. That is why we believe that an organization should also be emotionally intelligent. An emotionally intelligent organization can easily accomplish its goals, can easily manage certain situations and can easily turn into the best workplace for its employees.

 

Susan Meindl

You may be reeling from a recent blow, an emotional loss, a divorce, a death, a disappointment, a serious life transition. In these cases empathy, interpersonal support and especially time, are the forces that will naturally bring your feelings back down to what is normal, manageable and acceptable for you. You may be able to find these helpful resources in friends or in family circles, but when these supports are not accessible or effective you may find it useful to go through your process with another person in the safe space of a therapeutic relationship with a psychologist, coach or other professional helper.

 

Byron Stock

Negative emotions can be like a stealth virus that drains both financial and human resources from your company. And unless you’ve safeguarded everyone by developing their emotional intelligence (EI) skills and creating a positive emotional climate, high turnover can be contagious. The key to preventing an outbreak of this virus at your company is an emotionally intelligent retention strategy.

 

Tayo Solagbade

An Emotionally Intelligent person has been described as one who has discovered the most effective way to CONTROL and USE his/her emotions to achieve improvements in performance and learning. From the above, one can correctly infer that the ability to CONTROL and USE one’s emotions to actualize set goals is what will make a person qualify to be called Emotionally Intelligent.

 

Jo Gibney

In many of today’s organisations, people are struggling to cope with excessive emotional pressures. They often react to these pressures with bitchiness, aggression, backstabbing, gossiping, complaining and other purely childish behaviours. And many in leadership positions are modeling these very behaviours! In short, organisations are tearing themselves apart from the inside out. It’s time to stop the madness Daniel Goleman, author of the 1995 classic Emotional Intelligence (Bantam Books), says that the best remedy for battling our emotional shortcomings is prevention. It’s a strong argument for introducing emotional intelligence training into all aspects of our workplaces, from leadership to customer service. It’s never too late to improve your emotional intelligence.

 

Greg Williams

How do you use emotional intelligence when you’re negotiating? Everyone uses emotional intelligence throughout their day. The better you are at recognizing how emotional intelligence is used the more astute you can become at using emotional intelligence upon others when you’re negotiating. In so doing, you’ll gain more of what you seek in your negotiations and other aspects of your life.

 

Tori Sutton

Many people assume the smartest guy in the room is always the most successful. Though having a high IQ never hurt anyone, intellect may not be the key achievement indicator. An increasing number of studies show those with emotional intelligence – often referred to as emotional quotient or EQ – outperform their colleagues in just about every setting. Simply put, how we manage our emotions plays a critical role in our success.

 

Shawn Quinlivan, CHT

The idea of compassion in the workplace has arrived! It is time to sharpen our consciousness of people skills in order to better build the relationships that attract and garner success. The power of cultivating a positive inner voice, formulating and utilizing effective affirmations, and practicing meditation disciplines to achieve emotional intelligence is fostering leadership at every level of corporate, business, and administrative culture.

 

Astrid Baumgardner

Lately, there has been a lot of press about the importance of emotional intelligence for successful entrepreneurs and leaders. Recent reports indicate that applicants to Yale’s School of Management will be tested on their emotional intelligence. An entrepreneur and investor with a Harvard MBA published an article in Forbes magazine about the importance of getting an “emotional education” in addition to a traditional education.

 

Amelia Carson

Emotional intelligence at the workplace describes an employee’s ability to recognize, evaluate, as well as manage his/her own emotions along with those of others. Employers give strong emphasis to improve the emotional intelligence of their employees because it is impossible to separate one’s emotions at the workplace. Therefore, there is a strong need for emotional intelligence training for employees’ performance.

 

Helen A Maffini

High divorce rates, bullying -both cyber and in person, body image diseases, increased violence on the news, fast-paced lifestyles, higher levels of stress in society and other issues make today’s world harder than ever before to navigate, especially for children. Parents and teachers must help children develop the skills they require to manage their emotions through these turbulent times

 

Robert Tafolla

Emotional intelligence is defined by psychologists as “the ability to reason about emotion”, and then they will equate the concept with a list of traits. I do not have a problem with this definition; however, after reading a myriad of scientific reports, it becomes clear that the concept cannot be defined by a practical physical world Science. It is after all, an emotional concept. In my experience, one cannot entirely define an emotional concept without using in part, emotion itself as part of the definition. Therefore, I developed the following principle for the writing and transcending of emotional principles.

 

Dr. Travis Bradberry

If you are an emotionally intelligent manager, you work hard to have good relationships with your direct reports and are rewarded by your employer for doing so. You pick up on the moods of your people, and you’ve mastered the art of using your team’s collective feelings-both the sour and the irrationally exuberant-to create positive change and encourage constructive collaboration. When your team needs to come together under the gun, you use your well-honed emotional intelligence (EQ) to get results.

 

Chris D Cruz

There are quite a number of instances that work the desire for an individual to have more than average emotional intelligence. Watching some detective movies, especially those that seek to uncover hidden conspiracies connote the effectiveness of possessing emotional intelligence.

 

Mihai Dumbrava

Emotional Intelligence might be described as the ability to control all your emotions and implicitly to exploit wisely your emotional reactions. Also known as, EQ, emotional intelligence concerns your social life, because the challenge comes when we are exposed to social factors. Our ability to manage emotions is not necessarily an innate skill; it can be developed and learned so that you will cope successfully with social challenges.

 

Prasoon Kumar

Feelings play a large role in our lives, and we recognized the fact long ago but gave little importance to understanding it since we simply could not find out more on the subject. Even those research studies which were carefully designed to get to the root of the matter could not really explore the subject well. In case, there are hurtful actions involved in the events being discussed, we often say emotions were running high (that’s why the hurtful actions took place), whereas the real problem might be lack of emotions.

 

Joseph Liberti

You see the possibilities. You recognize that your organization has capable and experienced people with great potential. And you see opportunities in various situations where a lack of people skills sabotages results. You believe in emotional intelligence and you find yourself saying, with some longing and frustration, “How do I get past the belief that emotional intelligence is too “touchy-feely” and doesn’t belong in our workplace?”

 

Craig Robin

Most of us might have heard of IQ or the Intelligence Quotient and might wonder about the concept of Emotional Intelligence. Emotional Intelligence or EI is defined as the ability to gauge or identify your own emotions and also have the skill of analysing others emotions can be termed as EI and just the way intelligence is measured by IQ, EQ or Emotional Quotient measures Emotional Intelligence.

 

David Hoza

Often we underestimate our ability to develop a skill or ability like emotional intelligence. When we cultivate an environment that nurtures emotionally intelligent responses and practices, our skills get a workout, and regardless of our natural ability level, we cultivate better understanding of one another and our clients. This value-added service can create the necessary responses for greater satisfaction-leading to better loyalty and word of mouth-for clients.

 

Maynard Brusman

People and the environment cannot sustain our current approaches to working out conflict and building more collaborative and respectful relationships. You might find the research on emotional intelligence and social intelligence helpful as a researched-based model to help improve our interpersonal connectivity.

 

Anthony Larman

During a 2007 workplace issues study, the international non-profit organization Six Seconds found that 89 percent of professionals surveyed in a group of 135 participants believed that Emotional Intelligence was critical to organizational performance and success. They also believed that 76 percent of workplace issues that resulted in lower success rates were people and relational in nature. A 2012 follow-up study involving a much larger group — 775 business professionals — revealed that the number of professionals who recognized people and relational issues were a huge workplace problem was still over 50 percent of the total group size (66 percent). More than half of the respondents (61.7 percent) believed that these issues existed because leaders were not effective at driving change.

 

Michael Cohn

Emotional intelligence is not new. It has been a concept (and a reality) for a very long time. However, the only difference now is that it has a new name. That happens quite often with concepts as well as other, more tangible things. Maybe people just get tired of using the same names so switching it up makes it seem as though that particular thing is new again.

 

Dr. Bruce A. Johnson

One of the most important elements needed for the development of effective classroom interactions is a well-developed emotional intelligence. These are skills that anyone can learn and to do so, you need to recognize how you habitually react to people or situations, and determine what areas need to be developed. Through time and practice your emotional intelligence can be strengthened and new habits formed.

Colette Lees

An awareness and understanding of emotions, both your own and others, is necessary for building and maintaining healthy, long-lasting relationships, first with yourself and then with other people. If this seems like a daunting proposition, then some Emotional Intelligence training would be of great benefit to you, because if you are not able to identify and manage your own emotions, you will miss or inaccurately read other people’s emotions. If you are aware of and able to manage your own emotions, then reading and dealing with the emotions of others becomes quite easy. And an accurate reading of others’ emotions helps you to successfully engage in the give-and-take that is so essential to forming solid relationships.

 

Neslyn Watson-Druee

A person’s emotional capital is crucial to his or her success. The relationship between success and emotional intelligence has indicated that star performers (people who outperform their peers) score significantly higher on emotional self-awareness, self-actualisation, empathy, inter-personal relationships, flexibility, problem-solving and stress management. Emotional intelligence has been called a soft skill, but research shows that it delivers bottom-line business results. Research has confirmed that emotionally intelligent leaders are indeed more successful than their less emotionally intelligent peers.

Life Coaching is about helping you look at where you are now and where you would like to be. The process enables a letting go of the past, accepting what is and positively embracing the present moment to move forward and achieve your goals and realise your dreams.

 

Gregory De Tisi

Today there are more Personal Life Coaches than ever before as we are all realising the power of getting help when we really need it. Personal Life Coaching has become a source of personal power for many people these days and, finding the right person to work with is key to your own success.

Would you like to know what life coaching is? Have you ever wondered if life coaching is for you? Do you ever feel stuck? Like you can’t move from point A to point B? A “Yes” to these questions might be why you would decide to work with a life coach. Life coaching can help you realize gaps and move you towards solutions. The following article discusses what life coaching is, if life coaching might be for you, how life coaching is different than therapy and the different areas that a person can be coached on.

 

Christina Cordle

With the changes in the present economy, more people have chosen to take up life coaching as a profession. Anyone can choose to become a life coach. However, not everyone can make a living out of it. There are a lot of coaches nowadays who are struggling with the bills to pay, while worrying where they will find their next client.

 

Mark S Davidson

When do you start feeling confident enough to start your own life coaching business? I’ve been asked this many times. It’s not like the movie, The Matrix, where you take a pill and suddenly everything becomes clear. It’s a process, like learning how to walk. And just as it was when you were learning how to walk, you will not master becoming a life coach without some scrapes and bruises.

 

Brandon D Johnson

The law of process states, nature guarantees the achievement of goals. The law highlights breaking the goal down into steps. The law of sowing and reaping states that whatever action given, corresponding action received. Each action has a predictable reward or consequence. The laws of the universe are existent, regardless of self awareness. The lack of awareness highlights underachievement and missed favorable circumstances. Nevertheless, this is where a life coach can be of assistance.

 

Rose Garde

Many Christians who feel they have good advice-giving skills have heard the term “Life Coach” and wonder about getting into the Christian Life Coaching field themselves. Ideas of having a thriving home-base business dance in their heads while they dream of doing what they love–serving God and helping others–while being paid. Becoming a Christian Life Coach with a thriving practice is another story, however. There are a number of attributes one should have and several things they should be aware of before embarking on this new career. This article provides tips for those considering starting a Christian life coaching career.

Great life coaching can be expensive but how can you really know if you are getting what you need to achieve the success you want? The answer can be found in the origins of life coaching and what the greatest coaches in history have used as their core principles. Before you decide to get a coach you need to understand the basics of real proven coaching and what you must know before spending your valuable money on one of the most important investments you will make for your life.

 

Russ Small

The profession of Life Coaching has been growing exponentially in recent years. Life Coaches work with individuals and groups as instructors or trainers, helping them set and reach goals and develop certain skills sets. Coaching can be done on the large scale, through motivational speaking, conferences and seminars, or performed using more individualized, one-on-one techniques.

 

Bruno Logreco

Life coaching breaks apart and dissolves false beliefs. What you believe will be the outcome to a given situation that has not yet occurred is simply not true – it’s FALSE. Unless you have psychic abilities, what you believe will be the outcome to a situation that has not yet occurred cannot be true. This kind of false belief will dent your confidence over time, until there is nothing left but fear, which will prevent you from tackling the very challenges that build self-confidence. Your life coach will ask you the proper questions to help you determine if what is holding you back from achieving your goals is true or false.

 

Alex Piper

For a very long time, people believed that stress can make you sick. But we had no way of scientific proof. With the development and progress of biomedical science we are now able to prove that there is a definite link between the state of mind and the state of health. The bridge that connects your mind and brain with the body and its overall health is the immune system. A properly functioning immune system protects the body from illness and when the immune system is malfunctioning, we get sick. This article will explore the mind-body relationship and how it affects the immune system and overall health and the life coaching implications.

An Emotional Quotient or EQ is defined as the variety of personal-management and social skills that helps an individual to improve in the workplace and life in general. Therefore, EQ plays a valuable role in how people interact within the workplace. The main foundations of EQ include self-awareness, optimism and empathy, which many develop early in life. Other foundations of EQ are developed only through experience such as perception, persuasiveness and tact.

This article tells you how you should get a grip on yourself after a divorce, and deal with issues and children in a mature manner. You will need to take time to grieve, but you must also realize that you have your life ahead of you, and now that you are newly single, you can make changes in the way you groom yourself or redecorate your home, but remember to keep yourself busy.

 

Peter Pierro

Kids hurt when they are embarrassed, ridiculed, or put down in any way. They hurt when they lose and are made to feel that they were at fault. They hurt when people make fun of their efforts. These kids are human just as you and I and they have the same feelings except that they are less experienced in dealing with these feelings and they have more trouble dealing with emotional pain.

 

David Mudie

As leaders we are not going to succeed at influencing others if we do not project credibility. People are just not going to be inspired by someone who they do not find trustworthy, reliable, and authoritative. In short, they won’t follow someone who they don’t believe has what it takes to succeed. One unfortunate way of destroying credibility is through emotional outbursts. An individual who can’t control herself/himself is not going to motivate anyone else.

 

Sven Grams

Raising your level of Emotional Intelligence, your Emotional Quotient or “EQ”, requires the mastery of a specific set of emotional and relational skills. Just as you need certain skills to safely operate a car, or to teach someone else to do so, you need to learn and develop emotional intelligence skills so that you can effectively work with and manage your own emotions and so that you can work productively with others and the emotions that they bring to the relationship.

 

Dorothy Ann Spry

What is intelligence? The ability to grasp an idea or a situation in a structured and systematic manner and deduce about it with reason. What is emotion? The dictionary defines emotion as any strong feeling, like love or anger. So our ability to deal with emotions in an intelligent way is what can be termed as “emotional intelligence”.

 

Kathleen Daniel

Here’s a stunning statistic. Did you know that research suggests that IQ may account for as little as 4% of your personal or career success? That leaves over 90% that we need to learn to access and leverage from other forms of intelligence. These include the ability to learn, to flow with pressure, and to develop authentic relationships based on trust. In a word, success requires emotional intelligence, the ability to use your emotions as a source of energy, information, connection and influence. Emotional intelligence combines input and insight from your heart as well as your head.

 

Marcia Sirota

Emotional Intelligence isn’t the same as being intellectually smart. Having a high IQ is advantageous, but having a high EQ can be even more so. By developing these 12 elements you’ll be able to improve your success in relationships and in all areas of your life.

 

Graham Yemm

Personal resilience is increasingly being researched as there is a recognition about the part it plays in helping people handle pressure and stress. We believe that our Personal Resilience Index can play a role in this. Over the last 15 years many organisations have looked at and used Emotional Intelligence within their development programmes. In this article we want to look at whether there is a link between the two. If working on one area, will it benefit the other? Can it be useful for organisations and individuals to do something – and produce an even wider payoff?

 

The “Jen Ratio” – A More Nuanced View of Emotional Intelligence by Linda Pickard, Ph.D.

The “jen ratio” is a simple measure and another tool for leader-managers. “Jen” science, the study of positive emotion, has been hinted at for centuries by various philosophers and scientists such as Confucius, Socrates, Plato and Darwin. But “jen” has only come into its own recently in the shadow and dying embers of the industrial revolution. With some deliberate practice, managers can generate higher “jen” ratios leading to higher performance all round, underpinned by the increasing momentum of the “flywheel of progress” through good acts.

Maintaining good emotional health is vital not only for one’s mental well being; but, also for leading fulfilling lives with full control on one’s emotions and behavior. Emotional health reflects upon the way a person sees himself and those around him. It is a reflection into his psychological state and his ability to manage emotions during crisis and otherwise.

What men want is a woman who has a high EQ. Don’t you mean IQ, Jack? No, I mean EQ. EQ stands for Emotional Quotient and just like IQ, it’s important for the proper function of society. They say that people who work in higher management tend to have a higher IQ, whereas people who have a high IQ never get paid as much as they deserve for their knowledge. People who can manage people always get paid more because they have more fulfilling relationships with the people around them. In the context of a marriage, you can have a more fulfilling relationship with your man by jacking up your EQ with two simple exercises you could do throughout your week.

Emotions are like energy that fuels our behavior, speech and actions. You know how you performed when you felt positive emotions like confidence, motivated, and excited. You must have also delivered less than ideal performance when you felt negative emotions such as anger, sadness and fear. Conventionally, most of us are taught to suppress our emotions so that we can be logical and rationale in our decisions, speech and actions. While you may have used that to survive unpleasant situations, that doesn’t strengthen your emotional muscles and maturity for better performance. So how do we manage, master and even leverage on our emotions to breakthrough your performance and achieve greater results. Let’s take a look at the 5 Emotional Keys to Breakthrough Your Performance.

Looking around us everyday, we get a sense of the emotional energy pervading all around of Fear, Anger, hostility, guilt, shame and depression, which Deepak Chopra calls as Diabolical Emotions. Spin it around and we can look at the divine emotions of Love, Joy, Compassion, and Equanimity according to him. Connecting the dots of the divine emotions to emotional intelligence, I have put forth my views how to arrive at the Happiness quotient that we all are seekers off.

We all know about IQ, emotional intelligence, kinesthetic intelligence, and so forth. But what do we know about sexual intelligence? The term isn’t well-known, nor is it something that has been developed traditionally. Our inquiry focuses on sexual intelligence that entails the systemic relationship of creativity and pleasure built into life force or sexual energy that can be found everywhere in life. We are particularly interested in bringing light to that systemic relationship inherent in the manifestation of sexual energy for the sake of consciously and joyously creating our lives, relationships, and careers.

In recent years there has been increased awareness around emotions. Before all of this came about, IQ (Intelligence quotient) was seen as the most important factor in deciding how intelligent someone is and in how their life would play out. This was until EQ (Emotional Intelligence Quotient) was introduced. Here, ones level of happiness and ability to function for example is largely associated with their level of emotional intelligence.

Studies in this area are on the increase as more professionals are becoming interested as the results of this type of study are proving to be very beneficial. In the study both cognition and intelligence are two distinct components. When a person’s IQ is measured it is done using the cognitive capacity which is generally a constant reading. The IQ measurement can be improved at any time.

When we talk of emotions or expressing emotions often we conjure up the images only of artists and writers. Self expression is a wider term as each one of us is a unique, transparent individual, peculiar in the traits and behavior. Emotional intelligence is not only about being able to understand our own feelings, but it is also about being able to Tune into how others are feeling around us.

 

Lance Winslow

We sure hear a lot about emotional IQ don’t we, and we are told that if we bite our tongue and act polite that we have a better personality displacement that will help us get along in life and go further faster. Now, that is probably true wouldn’t you say; judging from personal experience. However, you are one to be quick to fight or flight, or perhaps notice yourself getting all steamed up over someone who has done you wrong, and you blow your top, does that mean you have a low emotional IQ?

 

Stephen Ainsah-Mensah

Race-conscious advocates of the thesis of IQ consider candidates for IQ tests as merely individuals stripped of their respective cultural dresses. After taking IQ tests, outcomes are critically examined and then correlated with the respective cultures of the candidates. The preliminary conclusion is afterward drawn that Mrs. Y did much better than Mr. Q because people in Y’s culture tend, in general, to do much better than people in Q’s culture (regarding such tests). What follows, as an ultimate conclusion, is that in terms of the level of intelligence, Ys in general have much higher of it than Qs. This is a paradox.

Emotional intelligence is the ability to recognize, understand, and manage your own emotions and the emotions of other people in positive ways. Today we can clearly see that being only “book smart” and having a high intelligence quotient or IQ does not guarantee a successful, happy and fulfilled life. There are many people in all parts of the world who are very brilliant academically but are inept at dealing with people and successful at work or in their personal relationships. Academic intelligence is not enough on its own to be successful in life. IQ can help you get a job and earn a living, but it does not show you how to live a life. When it comes to happiness and success in life, emotional intelligence helps you build stronger relationships, succeed at work, and achieve your career and personal goals.

Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is the ability to control and express one’s feeling as well as understand, react and respond to other people’s emotion. After the 1995 book by Daniel Goleman, the theory of EQ spread like wildfire and companies all over the world began adopting this new model to their professional setting. Research suggested that employees with a higher EQ are more likely to display leadership skills and have a greater chance of succeeding in their careers.

In today’s global market place most powerful way to influence–and lead–is to be lovable. Emotions are infectious and leaders are the “emotional thermostats” of the groups and organisations they lead. They control the switch that can alter the intensity of engagement of the employees of their organization. With an ever-expanding marketplace and increasing competition, possessing a high Emotional Attractiveness Factor can be the one thing that distinguishes your business organisation from many others in the race, and can spell the difference between success and failure. It is about enhancing relationships at workplace, which will lead to more effective communication, increased cooperation, satisfied employees, and delighted customers and, ultimately, drive success of your teams and organisations.

 

Kiran Bala

Context of EI in workplaces is again a new area which is gaining popularity. Managers often think they should be impassive and unemotional, and encourage their employees to be the same. But emotions drive performance, and bosses who don’t acknowledge their own and others’ temperaments can’t inspire the best work from their staffs — or even motivate themselves.

An Emotionally Intelligent person has been described as one who has discovered the most effective way to CONTROL and USE his/her emotions to achieve improvements in performance and learning. From the above, one can correctly infer that the ability to CONTROL and USE one’s emotions to actualize set goals is what will make a person qualify to be called Emotionally Intelligent.
