Our thoughts create our experiences. In fact, it is our internal “self talk” and the nature of our “mental life”, which determines our moods, emotions, subjective experiences and ultimately our quality of life.
Many of our professional and relationship skills are underpinned by our Emotional Intelligence: the ability to manage our own emotions and sensitively respond to those of others.
A high EQ will help us better manage our relationships and can have significant benefits in terms of building rapport with clients and colleagues, negotiation skills, managing a stressful environment, dealing with deadlines, managing change and functioning as a team player.
