Building EQ Skills - Where does one Begin?

Emotional intelligence is crucial to being effective in relationships; it’s a skill set anyone can grow with practice.

The concepts of EQ have been around since as early as 1920, but it wasn’t until 1995 when Daniel Goleman published the book, Emotional Intelligence, Why it Can Matter More Than IQ, that the term really took hold in popular culture. The book quickly became a best seller and the concepts began to be put to the test.

Daniel Goleman describes emotional intelligence, and more specifically, what is it about emotional intelligence that makes a capable leader:

  1. knowing emotions - self awareness

  2. managing emotions - self regulation

  3. recognizing emotions in others - empathy awareness

  4. managing relationships - social skills

EQ in Action is an assessment tool that offers both a model for understanding EQ and, then identifying a baseline from which to create more self awareness and opportunity for growth and choice. This assessment is hands down one of the best tools I’ve experienced for cultivating self awareness, learning and refining emotional intelligence skills. I’m excited to work with people eager to learn more about how they might build up their own EQ. Does this sound like you? I am offering 10 assessments at a special rate - check it out!
