033 How can a politician be more socially responsible?

In this and the next episode we are looking closer into the role emotional intelligence plays in politics.

I am answering the most common 10 questions people are not asking us, but should and the question I am answering today is:

 

How can a politician be more socially responsible so that he/she can make an bigger impact in his/hers community by using strategies from EQ

 

Before I answer today’s question, I want to share today’s quote which is from Plato and it goes like this:

The first resistance to social change is to say it's not necessary.

Gloria Steinem

In my opinion social responsibility is linked to the structure of values and principles of a person, and this is what makes the person commit to his/her social mission as a political or public office.

A person in public office who does not commit to either the community (and even with the good of the whole world community) and not act and decide on the basis of the responsibility that has been granted by voters, is a person that it’s acting "stupid" as a politician, and therefore does not deserve this position because it is not able to give an adequate response to that responsibility.

 

When a politician gives signals to be making decisions from greed, from fear, from the ego or the need for power, it is time to dismiss him/her immediately because it’s for sure that the political will be making wrong decisions from inadequate emotional states and inadequate needs.

Stay tuned to find out more...
