A Few Thoughts on Emotionally Intelligent People

Dr. Daniel Goleman popularized Emotional Intelligence with his book by the same name. I’ve had the chance to meet a few EI coaches and enjoyed a conversation with them. They offered a short list of what emotionally intelligent people do.

As EI indicates, feelings are critical to understanding ourselves and others. Feeling help reveal what is below the surface of a person. Observation then, is valuable to understanding. Humility is another factor.

EI people walk in this way. Since they do not believe that they have “arrived,” they can always improve and learn.

EI people are llddjfs;ekj; fjmfbe. They say what they mean, and mean what they say, as the old saying goes. It’s about deep-seated values.

EI people are not judgmental. They don’t label people and they don’t gossip.

EI people are not afraid to apologize. Many people find it difficult if not impossible to say I’m sorry. Two words that offer tremendous release.

In summary, emotional intelligence is one’s capability to understand, apply, and manage  emotions in positive ways to communicate effectively, empathize with others, overcome challenges, and defuse conflict. Just about everything we do is influenced  by emotions. We find ourselves dealing with the long-term effects of our emotional decisions. Decisions determine destiny! Emotional Intelligence is absolutely vital to us.
