Emotional Intelligence

You have blind spots: We all have them, but if you don’t know what they are, you will continue to undermine your success. From his research, Marshall Goldsmith, one of the top executive coaches with Fortune 100 executives, says 70% of people think they are in the top 10%. This could be a significant blind spot for you. Using Emotional Intelligence coaching, assessments, 360-degree feedback, and interviews, you can establish what your blind spots are and begin to shed light on them.

Consider a few questions:

  1. What is the problem from your point of view?
  2. How does this problem typically make you feel?
  3. What makes the situation better?

Sign up for your competitive advantage: We know the further you go up in the organization, the more you use Emotional Intelligence (EQ) to be successful rather than your expertise and your Intelligence Quotient (IQ). Research studies show that Emotional Intelligence is the critical success factor anywhere from 50% to 85%, depending on the survey.

Become more mindful of your best strengths

Would you like a professional check-in?

Do yourself a big favor and come for a check-in. If you wait for your problems to resolve on their own, you risk them getting worse. Talk about concerns while they’re small, manageable, and somewhat insignificant. If you do, they’ll never morph into more significant issues.

“I’m convinced that it is feelings – and feelings alone – that account for the success of the Virgin brand.”

Discover Your Strengths

New industry leaders have embraced a human-centered approach to leading their companies.

Don’t wait for a favorable situation to fall out of the sky. That’s not a solid position. I realize it’s easier to say, but you must take control and discover your ability to find something positive in the most challenging situations. Now that’s a solid position.

Discover your human-centered approach to influence and leadership. Experience fulfillment and respect at home and work.

Suppose you don’t feel you can be assertive with your clients; practice with your friends and family. Don’t think that there’s something wrong with you that your doctor can medicate. Keep your wits about you. Build on your strengths. Practice them, and you’ll improve. If you’d like support or guidance, I’m available.

Secure & Stabilize Your Role & Your Income.

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

“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 family should be your priority, as your personal and professional success are always at stake. 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. Remember, feeling confident, focused, and charged up, are all emotions. 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, recognize that you have a problem.
