Aug. 25, 2010 11- 12 noon
-The expression emotional intelligence or EI indicates a kind of intelligence or skill that involves the ability to perceive, assess and positively influence one’s own and other people’s emotions. Expanded definition of the word “Emotional Quotient”: Are you a person who graduated with honors and yet cannot keep or advance in a job? Are you a person with a dream of becoming an entrepreneur but lacks the courage to pursue a project that is clearly within your area of expertise? If you are, then you lack emotional intelligence. This kind of intelligence involves the possession of abilities involving emotional discipline and control such as being able to motivate oneself and persist in the face of frustration, to control impulse and delay gratification, to regulate one’s moods and to keep distress from swamping the ability to think, to empathize, and to hope. While IQ has its nearly one hundred-year history of research on hundreds of thousands of people, emotional intelligence is a new concept. No one can yet say exactly how much of the variability from person in life’s course it accounts for. But now, existing data suggest that EQ can be as powerful as IQ, and at times, more powerful in shaping the destiny of man. And while there are those who agree that IQ cannot be changed much by experience or education, these crucial emotional competencies can indeed be learnedif we bother to teach them.
