Emotional Intelligence & Public Speaking

“We scarcely experience the world apart from our emotional response to it.” – Steven Stosny, Ph.D. Do emotions really have a place in presentations? Does your ability to be a good public speaker have anything to do with how emotionally intelligent you are? Shouldn’t we just get back to talking about the serious stuff? There’s still a bit of social stigma that rears its ugly head when we start talking about emotions. Executive Coach Ed Batista says, “We’re trained to regard emotions as irrational...

There’s More to Life than Logic

Elite, logical brainpower. Some believe that’s all that is needed to successfully solve problems. Critical thinking does play a central role in getting to good answers. Without a logical and disciplined process to actively “conceptualize, apply, analyze, synthesize, and evaluate” what we plan to do, biases and privilege can unconsciously and negatively influence decisions and shape outcomes. While logic and reason are good, they aren’t enough. Especially if leaders want inclusive decisions that ...

Podcast Ep. 169: ‘They journal/meditate/do yoga/go to therapy. Shouldn’t they be more emotionally intelligent?’

How to Become Truly Smart

We all know people who are well-educated but don’t know nuttin’. And we all know people with little formal education who are bright, brainy, maybe even brilliant. Obviously it’s not just what we learn in school that makes us smart. It’s how we live life.   If you wish to become smarter, you don’t need to go back to school (though that’s certainly an option). But you do need to develop the ability to reflect, reframe and rejoice. What’s so special about these 3 R’s? What happened to reading, w...

How to Spot the 5 Subtle Forms of Workplace Bias

I’ve been thinking a lot about what it means to be a tall, white man. While I am Caucasian, I’m not tall or male. And because depending on who you ask, between 70-80 percent of leaders have all three attributes, I’m wondering just how much my lack of two of them has held me back. When I talked, off the record, to a gender bias researcher at a prestigious U.S. university, she informed me that I should not take my success for granted. Apparently, being a short woman in Corporate America means I mu...

Leading Change with Emotional Intelligence

Emotional intelligence (EQ) is a primary driver of leadership effectiveness. Numerous research studies identify EQ as more important than technical skills, industry knowledge, and other factors that set apart top-performing leaders. EQ expert Daniel Goleman credits emotional intelligence for 90% of the difference between star performers and average ones in senior leadership roles. EQ is essential to successfully lead change, since change elicits a wide range of emotional responses from those who...

Emphasizing Cognitive Diversity: Can It Be Taught?

A few years ago, I worked with The Billie Jean King Leadership Initiative (BJKLI) and The Deloitte University Leadership Center for Inclusion on a survey that sought to provide modern context around the notions of diversity and inclusion. Among other things, the research asked nearly 4,000 global professionals of all levels, ages, genders, races, ethnicities, and sexual orientations how they define these terms. It might not come as a surprise that most baby boomers and even X-ers (read: the chro...

Three Parenting Skills to Help Children Develop Emotional Intelligence and Resilience

Since a model of Emotional Intelligence (EQ) was introduced in 1990 (Salovey and Mayer), the push for developing EQ has gained momentum in many realms, recognized as a critical factor in well-being and success. Given the complexities of modern life, the subtitle of Daniel Goleman’s 1995 bestseller Emotional Intelligence seems both a directive and a warning as we witness daily Why It Can Matter More Than IQ . No one influences the development of EQ more than a child’s first teachers a...

The Changing Role of Leaders

I think we can all agree that business is changing and, as a result, the role of leaders is changing. No longer are leaders just expected to direct the business, sometimes at all costs, to achieve results. Today, leaders need to be able to combine operational business expertise with high levels of emotional intelligence. Leaders need to be compassionate and empathetic if they are to create high performance teams that thrive in today’s VUCA world. For some traditional leaders, the thought of brin...

Podcast Ep. 154: Talking About Our Feelings (Part One)

Over the next couple of episodes of The Baggage Reclaim Sessions, I’m delving into a topic that sparks discomfort in a lot of us: talking about our feelings. Expressing ours, not just to others, but also to ourselves, is crucial to our emotional, mental, physical and spiritual wellbeing as well as to the health and wealth of our interpersonal relationships. So, why then, do so many of us have a pattern of not expressing our feelings? And what causes us not to say something even when we might wan...

Working with Emotional Triggers #nearlymindful

Emotional triggers happen to us all day, every day. A trigger can be pretty much any topic that makes us feel strongly, whether that’s negative or positive. They can be a memory, a conversation, or simply a feeling that we respond to in a certain way. Triggers can spark joy, happiness, frustration, fear, sadness, anger, and a host of other responses. Some good, some not so good. An example of a positive trigger might be the sound of someone laughing which causes you to smile. An example of a neg...

How to Turn Criticism into an Opportunity to Strengthen Your Child’s Emotional Intelligence

Problem is, others may not agree with how you choose to raise your child, and you won’t always be able to control how they consider a child “should be raised.” Inspired by John Gottman ’s studies, “Emotion Coaching” has been found to lead to fewer behavior problems, better academic outcomes, better self-regulation, and greater emotional and physical health.
