Emotional Intelligence Coaching

Emotional Intelligence

Developing higher levels of Emotional Intelligence has been proven to be the single most powerful contributor to advancing your career, professional and personal relationships, and overall happiness.

Emotional Intelligence EI is a relatively recent behavioral model, rising ot prominence with Daniel Golema's 1995 book called 'Emotional Intelligence'. The early Emotional Intelligence theory was originally developed during the 1970s and 80s by the work and writings of psychologists Howard Gardner (Harvard), Peter Salovey (Yale) and John Mayer (New Hampshire). Emotional Intelligence is increasingly relevant to organizational development and developing people because the EI principles provide a new way to understand and assess people's behaviors, management styles, attitudes, interpersonal skills, and potential. Emotional Intelligence is an important consideration in human resources planning, job profiling, recruitment interviewing and selection, management development, customer relations and customer service, and more.

Emotional Intelligence links strongly with concepts of love and spirituality, bringing compassion and humanity to work, and also to 'Multiple Intelligence' theory which illustrates and measures the range of capabilities people possess and the fact that everybody has a value.

The EQ concept argues that IQ, or conventional intelligenvce is too narrow; that there are wider areas of emotional intelligence that dictate and enable hopw successful we are. Success requires more than IQ (Intelligence QUotient) which has tended ot be the traditional measure of intelligence, ignoring essential behavioral and character elements. We've all met people who are academically brilliant and yet are socially and inter-personally inept. And we know that despite possessing a high IQ rating, success does not automatically follow.

This is the essential premise of EI

TO be successful requires the effective awareness, control and management of one's own emotions, and those of other people. Emotional Intelligence embraces and draws from numerous other branches of behavioral, emotional and communications theories. By developing our Emotional Intelligencve in the five EI domains we can become more productive and successful too. The process and outcomes of Emotional Intelligence development also contain many elements known to reduce stress for individuals and organizations, by decreasing conflict, improving relationships and understanding, and increasing stability, continuity and harmony.
