Most people have heard of emotional intelligence and many people know what it is, but far fewer people know how to use it to improve their performance, wellbeing and relationships. Particularly in times of stress, it can be easy to forget being emotionally intelligent. The good news is that spotting triggers and consistently responding in a more emotionally intelligent way can be trained! The benefits of emotional intelligence are manifold: (1) improved performance - better decision making, time management, presentation skills, change tolerance, and earnings; (2) improved wellbeing - decreased anxiety and stress, and better stress tolerance, resilience, anger management and assertiveness; and (3) improved relationships - more empathy and compassion, and better communication and people skills. Key elements of emotional intelligence are selfawareness, self-regulation, mindfulness, motivation, social awareness and interpersonal skills.
