Emotional Intelligence and uddeshya

Enlightening, empowering and beneficial would be the apt words to use for the 3 sessions we have had for emotional intelligence. Needless to say, our proficient facilitators (Nandini ma’am and Evelyn ma’am) were the cherry on the cake. The smooth transition in understanding the purpose of emotional awareness was perfect. I understood the various strategies to manage my anger, which I feel is my main struggle. SBNRR (Stop, Breathe, Notice, Reflect and Respond) strategy was excellent, well, will try to implement it whenever possible.

Also, understanding that happiness is categorized made sense. Analysing Pleasure, Passion and Purpose was insightful through the guest speaker session (taken up by Vardan sir.)

I did analyze, whatever we have been doing in life classes until now, the application is done in emotional intelligence, and I am able to connect the dots very well, though I may not be vocal about it.

In the end, I must say, the purpose of understanding one’s purpose was purposeful.

Life classes have always helped me widen my horizons. This life class have helped me get acquainted with innumerable terminologies. It has also helped me widen my horizons.

These classes surely serve as stress busters. Amygdala hijack, ikigai quadrnats, intrinsic motivation, Siberian North rail road and many more conceptual and meaningful discussions have helped me grow personally as an optimistic personality with a pragmatic approach.

Looking forward to more sessions that will help me unleash my potential and maximize my productivity in my personal as well as professional life



Emotional Intelligence- Explore yourself

It is important to be aware about your own emotions and the ways to express them knowing the facts that emotions are temporary and we can change them that will result in change in approach to the situations that trigger us, to make ourselves and people around us safe mentally and physically.

This helps in personal growth, improve personal and professional relationship we have. We need to be mindful which is a state that is between the stimulus and response. To attend it, we need to develop the skill called emotional intelligence. We all often fail to be in this state of being reactive to the stimulus and stay in that state of emotions that is called Amygdala hijack. There are three domains of emotional intelligence- Self awareness, self regulations and intrinsic motivation.

We do all of this for the ultimate goal being happy. There are three kinds of happiness- pleasure, passion and purpose. If you find a purpose, you can envision and anticipate the results. In order to get desired result, you challenge yourself knowing more and developing more skills and you develop interest in what you are doing. When we achieve the desired result ,we are motivated for bigger goals for ourselves, community and more.

Emotional intelligence- Reflection

Just like all other life classes, I was both excited and inhibited. But history repeats itself and I had a lot of takeaways from each and every session.
The concept which stuck with me the most was the Amygdala hijack which I am much more aware of now. The autopilot mode is more evident now and I try to be in the present moment. The universal emotions in this VUCA world affects us not only mentally but also physically as there are numerous changes in our body while experiencing these emotions.
We understood strategies to be self-aware and then self-regulate ourselves. The guided meditation conducted by Evelyn ma’am helped a lot in introspecting our emotions and feel lighter. Journaling and discussions gave better clarity about how we can self-regulate our feelings.
The session by Vardan sir gave more insights about pleasure, passion and purpose. In addition to this through videos, we understood our purpose and ikigai.
Overall, looking forward to becoming a better emotionally intelligent person in the future.

Takeaways – Emotional Intelligence

Firstly the term ‘Emotional intelligence’ was very much alien term to me.But both the days of life classes have helped me to focus more about human emotions and also bit of physiology. There was lot of peer sharing which helped again to unlearn and relearn about few complex topics associated with emotions. The best part of the session was realising how vital mindful listening is when we talk about communication skills. There were few videos which was used to brainstorm about particular scenario. The example shared in video by Gaur Gopal Das was really effective. In a lucid way it helped us to realize how we drag with different emotions when we are happy & sad. It was great opportunity to introspect about ourselves and think the practices that can help us to synergies well with team members and other people in our life.
