TRIPLE III TIME: Learning About “Emotional Intelligence”

Psychologist and author Deborah Rozman at one time made this important point:  “If you don’t manage your emotions, your emotions will manage you.”  And I have to be honest I really don’t remember where or when I read Ms. Rozman’s statement, but it wasn’t until recently as I strategized with a colleague consultant did the term Emotional Intelligence become a priority professional development issue for me.

Emotional Intelligence is defined as:  “the ability to understand, manage and express one’s emotions in healthy ways.”  Think about that definition and then apply it to yourself.  When you feel good about yourself and where you are going in life, your emotions help with appropriate energy and enthusiasm.  On the flip side when we are down-in-the-dumps and seem to be going nowhere, fear, anger, frustration, sadness and worry take a tremendous toll on our health both physical and mentally.  I believe Learning About Emotional Intelligence is something everyone should undertake.  What do I mean?  I mean allow personal and professional time to better understand your emotions and the emotions of those you live and work with.  Consider ways to…I will use the term harness…your emotions to possibly reduce stress, anger and move more quickly to positiveness.  No one enjoys being caught in life’s ups and downs roller coaster ride.  I believe these are the most critical times when understanding the impacts of Emotional Intelligence can lead to a quicker, positive life or work situation.

The goal of this TRIPLE III TIME message: Learning about “Emotional Intelligence” is just to create a greater awareness and understanding of this topic as a professional development tool.  Thanks to JK for sharing it’s basics with me and I encourage all III readers to do a little research and reading about it.
