True North Podcast Featuring EQ Skill 4, Navigating Emotions
If you’ve been following my recent series Secrets of Emotionally Intelligent Leaders, you’ll be glad to know we’ve posted the fourth podcast in the series.
This podcast focuses on the fourth EQ skill, Navigating Emotions. Each session covers one of the eight competencies for emotionally intelligent leadership from Six Seconds, the global network supporting people to create positive change - everywhere, all the time.
What is Navigating Emotions?
“People are often told to control their emotions, to suppress feelings like anger, joy, or fear, and
eliminate them from the decision-making process,” Six Seconds notes. “However, feelings provide insight and energy; they drive decision-making and behavior – without emotion people literally cannot make decisions.”
Instead of ignoring our feelings or controlling them through the sheer force of will, the Navigating Emotions competence “lets you manage emotions, gain valuable insight from them, and then transform them so you create feelings that are helpful to you and others.”
This session covers
what Navigating Emotions is in relation to your EQ,
why it’s important for you as an individual, a leader, and an organization,
and offers tips and strategies you can use to grow this competency.
