14 May Is Emotional Intelligence optional in the work context?
Let’s break this down…are we to accept emotional outbursts in the office? How about passive – aggressive behaviour, the kind that gets under your skin? Should a business be led and managed by big babies or qualified grown ups who can make sound decisions and generate a profit? Surely, there should be a zero – tolerance approach towards these scenarios. And, this is less about keeping your emotions in check before you enter the work zone, but more about accessing your full range of emotions during work hours…being human…however, being equipped to remain resilient despite imminent ugliness. Throughout the series of meetings, deadlines, politics and boardroom drama, that is inherent to organisational life, it is imperative and no longer optional to proactively look at your EQ in the face.
This means getting yourself assessed and officially evaluated by an Industrial Psychologist, where you can obtain clarity on your capacity for self – awareness today. Don’t wait, until you are buried in people issues or frustrated with your workload and find yourself disengaged, not knowing how to find inspiration. Have the courage to step up and complete the globally acclaimed EQi2.0 Psychometric Test with Intuitive Science. Acquire a full scope of where your score resides and read the details of the report which will guide you on where you need to focus and salute you on components that you are flourishing in. This allows you to celebrate your wins, where you aren’t second guessing whether or not you are emotionally intelligent, but overtly aware of the gap between your current EQ Self and future EQ Self. The beauty of EQ is that it is changeable.
After completing the Assessment and 2 – day EQ Edge Workshop with Intuitive Science, you will experience a shift in understanding. All the incidents you’ve encountered will start to replay in your mind and heart. This is when you are primed for one – on – one coaching, which is the third level in the triple advantage factor, for grooming your emotions, where you are no longer considered volatile or repressed. You can finally start to see the collective effect of assessing individuals within a team and department and start to build an organisation with a high score on EQ Proficiency. Emotional Intelligence has been around for decades, so technically speaking you are falling behind if you aren’t self aware. You cannot change, what you don’t recognise. So, rather than settling for IQ – Intellectual Intelligence and dismissing the huge base of emotions that govern our well being and judgment…embrace it fully and be that change in the world.
