Developing your emotional intelligence just got easier
Experts are beginning to agree that types of intelligence other than IQ (Intelligence Quotient) have evolved as human capacities over the last two million years. Low Emotional Intelligence Quotient or EQ can be perceived as the absence of control over the outcome of a situation. Do you ever feel like this is the case - you keep getting 'poor luck' or cannot influence better results? When you have a high EQ, you are adept at interpreting the emotional roots of your thinking and behaviours and choosing your actions for beneficial outcomes. You may also be capable of making good insights into the behaviours and reactions of others through empathy and rapport.
These topics are explored, step by step in Emotional Intelligence In A Week. You will gain an understanding of EI through finding out about:
- Pessimism and optimism
- Key milestones in the development of EI-related concepts
- Measurement of EQ - a list of assessments
- Identifying the benefits of 'emotional fitness'
