When It Is Emotional Intelligence And When It Is Not
Reading about Emotional Intelligence is a starting point, but to really "Get it" you have to put the competencies into practice. Coaching is the suggested venue for the crucial active-learning stage. Social and interpersonal skills can't be practiced in a vacuum, and you need feedback. Emotional Intelligence is about understanding and valuing emotions; managing them; and integrating them comfortably with thinking processes for the information, motivation, enrichment and connection they give us. Most people find Emotional Intelligence to be "The missing piece" and the best way to understand it, is to experience it.
