Your EQ could matter more than your IQ
The ability to understand feelings from moment to moment is crucial to psychological insight and self understanding.
Over the course of time I understood that when emotions run high, they change the way our brains function…diminishing our cognitive abilities, decision-making powers, and even interpersonal skills. Understanding and managing our emotions (and the emotions of others) helps us to be more successful in both our personal and professional lives.
At a personal level, emotional intelligence helps us:
- Have uncomfortable conversations without hurting feelings.
- Manage our emotions when stressed or feeling overwhelmed
- Improve relationships with the people we care about
At work, emotional intelligence can help us:
- Resolve conflicts
- Coach and motivate others
- Create a culture of collaboration
- Build psychological safety within teams
I actually wondered how is it possible?
Well these sessions have helped me understanding that how being an emotionally intelligent person makes you stand out of the crowd. On the top of it, I learned that mindfulness is a key tool in understanding ourselves, our own thoughts and feelings and what is important to us. Mindful conversation and techniques of dealing with triggers have actually helped me in handling unpleasant situations in life. The knowledge of Self motivation and it’s elements have made me stay more focused on the purpose of my life and my vision crystal clear.
