The subject of emotional intelligence (EQ) has been discussed in business circles for the last thirty years, ever since Daniel Goleman first brought the topic to the wider public.
Goleman introduced the concept of four pillars supporting EQ, which he saw as: –
- Social Awareness
- Relationship Management
What we know, from extensive research, is that those that are able to develop a command of their EQ are much more likely to be successful in the workplace, and more generally in life, than those who choose to pay little attention to this aspect of their development.
Often, in a business context, Goleman’s four elements are discussed at quite a theoretical level and ideas about how the different aspects of EQ might be improved upon are talked about in general terms.
But the reality of dealing with one’s own emotions goes much deeper than just telling someone that they need to be more self-aware or better at managing relationships.
At Silver Lobster we offer both transformational one-to-one coaching and group workshops that get to the heart of emotions and what they mean to people in the workplace.
We are also licensed to administer the EQi2.0 Emotional Intelligence profiling tool, which produces a report with valuable insights into different aspects of Emotional Intelligence and pointers to how the report-holder might develop their EQ and improve their self-awareness, self management, social awareness and relationship management.
We encourage people to go beyond EI and explore how their emotions shape who they are and how they interact with others. It’s one thing to understand emotions in general terms, it’s another to understand what lies underneath them for us personally.
