Emotional Intelligence


What is intelligence (and why should we care)?

This is one of psychology’s “big” questions. The study of intelligence has a long history in psychology, going back at least to the early 1900s when educators sought to test the mental abilities of schoolchildren. There is no singular, set definition that psychologists generally agree upon, nor is there even now one clear-cut way to measure it.

Psychologists seem to understand that intelligence is more than just academic knowledge and that any good definition must include such attributes as practical knowledge (“street smarts”), self-understanding, and understanding of others. We should care about what intelligence is because these skills extend well beyond the classroom and can enrich our lives, and the lives of others, in meaningful ways.

Don’t wait for a favorable situation to fall out of the sky. That’s not a solid position to be in. I realize that it’s easier to say, but you’re going to need to take control and discover your ability to find something positive in the most challenging situations. Now that’s a solid position to be in. Suppose you don’t feel that you can be assertive with your clients; practice with your friends and family. Don’t think that there’s something wrong with you that should be medicated. Practice, and you’ll improve. If you’d like support or guidance, I’m available. Once you’ve become good at maintaining a positive attitude, you’ll likely start noticing that it happens spontaneously with everyone.

Skill up with emotional intelligence.

Daniel Goleman defined “emotional competence” as a “learned capability based on emotional intelligence which results in an outstanding performance at work.”

Emotional Intelligence Connects a Team

“Even on an oil rig . . . demonstrating emotional intelligence (EQ) is a key leadership trait. EQ will build trust essential in conditions where bravado could get you killed . . .” – Sylvia Ann Hewlett.

Connecting with your team and with people in general is a priority for you. You have a desire for people to respect, not fear you. To make this happen, you consult with your Psychologist to develop a deeper appreciation of emotions. Value your feelings and those of others. Improve your perspectives and upgrade your emotional filters with “Emotional Intelligence” coaching.

Improve your ability to attend to your relationships at home. Have a happy relationship with your spouse, family, and neighbors. When your default position is to go from happy to angry and back, you’ve recognized that you have a problem.
