Why hasn’t anybody talked about EQ until a few years ago?

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

"There are certain emotions that will kill your drive; frustration and confusion.  You can change these to a positive force.  Frustration means you are on the verge of a breakthrough.  Confusion can mean you are about to learn something.  Expect the breakthrough and expect to learn."

Even if the conversations has increased recently, there is still too little practical advice how to incorporate emotional intelligence in our daily life.

In the last 30 years the research has improved and gotten better, however there is still a great work that needs to be done, both in the research as well on a practical level.

Even thou the research is very important aspect of emotional intelligence, I feel that there is much more focus on the theory instead of the actual application of emotional intelligence in our daily life and work. 

 

Stay tuned to find out more...
