Want to get started with Emotional Intelligence? We offer layers of resources to help you grow
Emotions are part of human biology. They are chemicals that help regulate our minds and bodies, assisting us to cope with the complexities of making decisions, interacting with people, and finding our way through life. We feel emotions to help us pay attention, and to focus our attention. While sometimes they’re confusing, emotions are part of us, so we might as well learn to use them well – and we are here to help you with that process.
You’ve Got Emotional Intelligence – Use It!
Everyone has some emotional intelligence – here’s how to use yours. Start with these three steps:
Notice your feelings and reactions. Get off autopilot. Tune in to what’s happening inside. We call this step Know Yourself
Instead of reacting, give yourself a moment to de-escalate and evaluate all of your options. This is called Choose Yourself
Connect Remember what’s truly important to you, consider others, and then move forward with those in mind. This is Give Yourself
At first glance, it’s really simple, right? Start practicing by taking a few seconds, a few times a day, to go through those steps. You can use these three questions:
What am I feeling?
What options do I have?
What do I really want?
