Knobull Demonstrates Tools To Strengthen Skills That Create EQ

By: Knobull
PROVIDENCE, R.I. - March 1, 2023 - PRLog -- Lynn Bentley, President of Knobull reported, "The definition of what makes an effective professional is changing. While a forceful approach has been a traditional trademark of professionalism, success in a post-pandemic world puts a greater emphasis on emotional intelligence (EQ) and the ability to tap into the experiences of others."

EQ is essentially one's ability to recognize and understand emotions in oneself and others, and to use this awareness to manage one's behavior and relationships. The good news is that EQ is a set of skills and behaviors that can be learned.

EQ Trait #1: Self Awareness

In a nutshell, self awareness is the ability to clearly and accurately see your personality, strengths and weaknesses, and behavioral tendencies, as well as how other people perceive you. The research consistently shows that people who master self awareness show EQ capabilities.

You could make a habit of checking in for feedback from others, your boss or co-workers with whom you collaborate.

EQ Trait #2: Mindfulness

The definition of mindfulness is "the self-regulation of attention with an attitude of curiosity, openness and acceptance." To break that down, self regulation is about being in control of where you focus your attention, and the attitude part is about being open to whatever it is you're focusing on and curious about what you might discover.

The truth is that you have more control over what happens in your inner world than what happens in your outer world. Controlling your mind can also have a real-world impact. Mindfulness increases your social perception because you are present in the moment and more attentive to the needs of others.

EQ Trait #3: Openness

Openness is a dimension of EQ that allows us to be curious and seek out new information, to listen to and receive feedback and be open to differing opinions and points of view. Openness is important for uncovering opportunities for growth. The lack of openness narrows your attention and perspective, pushing you to focus on right versus wrong rather than seeing multiple perspectives.

Bentley concluded, "The human mind loves to categorize, label and sort things into groups. This can lead to binary thinking, such as sorting things into this or that, us versus them, right versus wrong, and good versus bad. Guiding your emotions facilitates professionalism and builds career success. Go to Contact in the Knobull menu section to request this guide or other guides for learning and career success."
