Emotional Intelligence

Emotional intelligence (otherwise known as emotional quotient or EQ) is the ability to understand, use, and manage your own emotions in positive ways to relieve stress, communicate effectively, empathize with others, overcome challenges and defuse conflict. 

Emotional intelligence starts with getting to know yourself, what triggers you and how you react to things that happens and more importantly how you manage yourself. It is about Self Leadership. Your self esteem plays a key role here how you choose to respond in challenging situations and how you react and view problems in life. 

How we interact with other people is involved in how we manage our own feelings. We train our children how to manage challenges from early on before they learn to walk actually. We also teach children empathy when we make sure that children is not mean to animals or other children. We help our children to solve conflicts instead of doing it all for them, this way we prepare and train our children for adulthood. We also help a child to stop making scenes at the grocery store or anywhere else since making dramatic scenes is something that one as adult should not do either. We teach social values that is to exist at ”The Social Playground” in life. 

As an adult you continue to learn while interacting in ”The Social Playground” of life, and the whole point is to improve your skills, your Emotional Intelligence. Especially in tough times, like during a Pandemic this is very useful to yourself and everyone that you interact with. 

Maturity is a similar or a more outdated expression of Emotional Intelligence but has not the same wide meaning. Maturity is more to be a role model and to be more solid and strong, standing on your own two feet. While Emotional intelligence is something that others more benefits from since there is a large part of interaction with others involved here to our opinion. 

Immature or low Emotional Intelligence tend to blame others for their feelings and decide to victimize themselves.

We are targeting both Women & Men with our different coaching options. Emotional Intelligence is about feelings, how to cope with problems and what you see as a solution to the problems, what decisions will you make when you are faced with challenges, fear or danger.  

Perhaps you are not so used to talk about feelings or worries because you think you are not allowed to because you have to be strong to be a man. That is BS. We really want to give you a good advise to talk about your feelings, you can learn how to do it. Cry is also very good, it will ease the tension and you will feel more relaxed. Worries is normal these days, the important thing is what you do about it. 

Emotional Intelligence, EQ, is very exciting. How we interact with other people involves how we manage our own feelings. It involves our values, our boundaries and is very much based on our Self Esteem how we treat other people. If you want to boost your self esteem and become better at talking about your feelings and manage your feelings there is much to choose from within our different coaching options – link in menu – Welcome!
