Bringing emotional intelligence into business
I teach Emotional Intelligence, a concept that is fashionably thrown around a lot these days, yet, understood very little. Especially in the wake of Covid, emotional intelligence has risen to the surface as paramount for leaders. The problem is, it’s not something that we were taught in school. So let’s define it upfront:
Emotional intelligence is the ability to regulate your own emotions and to build resilience so you can more efficiently process challenges and bounce back from stressors.
Why this is so crucial, in all aspects of life but especially in business, is that emotions change the blood flow in the brain, and this impacts how you think.
