The more we are connected electronically the less we are connected emotionally. Our reliance on alarm clocks, timers, Siri, Alexa, and smart devices have dampened our common sense. When we practice healthy emotional intelligence we have a crisp alertness of which battles to fight and which battles to peacefully ignore on a daily basis. Not every battle is worth fighting.
Emotionally intelligent people practice better time management by picking the right medium of communication. They save time by picking up the phone and having a five minute conversation to resolve a matter rather than exchanging 73+e-mails over two months and feeling frustrated.
Knowing what to leave out from a conversation, at the morning meeting or in an e-mail can save a lot of headache, tensions, and damage down the road. Emotionally intelligent people know how to get the day started right, in order to get the most from the day, rather than allowing the day to get the most from us. They control the day, rather than the day controlling them. Taking a few seconds to practice mindfulness, reflection, and silence, right before a Zoom call which you know is going to be emotionally charged, can have a dramatic effect on how that online meeting unfolds. Silence leads to more listening, less talking. This can be a great stress-saver especially for someone who has difficulty with word-management.
Course participants will be able to:
- Know how to access the EQ toolbox to determine ahead of time, which battles to fight and which battles to peacefully ignore in the workplace
- How to use the proper word choice in handling sensitive conversations.
- What’s wrong with you? vs What’s troubling you? can have very different emotional triggers
- How to decide which method communication to use to suit different situations and people; some people sound one way over the phone but behave very differently face to face
