Emotional Intelligence Training

When it comes to emotional intelligence training, I don’t think there’s anyone who believes that EI is an ability that one is just born with. I could be wrong, but I’m sure just about everyone out there truly believes that emotional intelligence is a skill that can be learned.

Granted some of us may look at certain people and say… “Nope, anybody else can learn emotional intelligence… except them. They’ll just never get it.”

We won’t go there.

But for now let’s say that emotional intelligence training is more than just a good idea. It’s a practical and learnable skill that any of us has the capacity to master.

Reframing The Emotional Intelligence Definition

We previously took a close look at how the mind works just like a computer when it comes to accumulating mental programs.

Almost everyone incorporates this image into his or her emotional intelligence definition.

It’s a great way to look at the mind. It simplifies our concept of how the mind operates and allows us to develop a more experiential sense of our own emotional intelligence definition.

It’s easy to see how our belief systems and behaviours work just like computer programs. Through past decisions, we form ideas and beliefs and those beliefs continue to run until we make a determined decision to stop them.

As such, we see a lot of solutions out there for dealing with programs that we don’t want. What’s their solution? Reprogram yourself.

The problem is… that doesn’t work.

The Secret Ingredient to Emotional Literacy

One of our objectives here is to present you with some discriminating questions about emotional literacy so you can come up with your own answers.

We’ve also pointed out that, while there’s so much material and many courses that offer to teach emotional literacy, the vast majority of that material doesn’t fully take you to the end result you’re looking for.

Myers Briggs Personality Tests Versus Emotional Intelligence Tests

Myers Briggs Personality Tests Versus Emotional Intelligence Tests …

The Myers Briggs personality tests and the Enneagram are very powerful psychological  systems both approaching behaviour from different perspectives.  Neither is wrong and once you have grasped the difference in approach you will see how The Enneagram and Myers Briggs can be used to compliment each other or selected individually depending upon the specific application.

There are many articles comparing these systems from a historical and theoretical sense. I will not go into the history of the The Enneagram or Myers Briggs as from a practical  sense its suffice to say both systems provide a very powerful tools to help understand human behaviour.

What Makes a Good Emotional Intelligence Training Course?

Rightfully, eyes are turning more and more towards understanding (and ideally… increasing) emotional intelligence through emotional intelligence training. Many of us recognise that standard measures of aptitude and performance only paint part of the picture.

Also, we clearly see people who demonstrate a profound EQ. These are the people who handle difficult situations and difficult people with ease, who remain calm and centred in the face of strong adversity.

Not only would we like to know what their secret is, we’d like to pass this knowledge on throughout our entire organisation. That makes for good business. Plus, that just makes our environment more harmonious and fun to work in.

But the big question is:

How do you identify a good emotional intelligence training course?

Emotional Intelligence EI – A Different View

It seems that the abbreviation everyone used to use for emotional intelligence was always ‘EQ.’

I suppose the reasoning behind the slight misnaming was to draw a parallel to the measurement of intelligence quotient, thereby suggesting to those who value IQ measurements shift their attention to the value of evaluating and enhancing EQ.

Besides, EQ has a nice ring to it.

However, I see lately that the proper abbreviation for emotional intelligence EI is used more and more. And it got me thinking…

The Measure of Emotional Intelligence

To start off, I have a quick question to ask you…

Why do you want to achieve emotional intelligence?

In other words, what is your goal?

I ask this question to put your focus back on you. You see, if you look at the studies of emotional intelligence you can easily get lost in all the highly technical definitions and disagreements.

Stop and discriminate for a moment. When you focus on the debates and the theories, does that lead you into experiencing emotional intelligence for yourself?
