A new series – Emotional Health & Spiritual By-passing debuts on all my podcast channels today. Listen, learn and leverage.
In this pilot episode of a new series on Emotional Health and Spiritual Bypassing, I lay the foundation for the series by introducing myself and my religious belief, and academic understanding of most other religious beliefs; and the fact that this series is bound to be controversial for those who see religious issues as matters of black and white.
I explain that the reason for this series is to help us appreciate how our emotions have betrayed us such that many of our children, wards and relatives do not want to accept our faiths because we have allowed those emotions portray us in an untoward fashion.
In this episode we discuss the second part of our the fundamentals of Emotional Intelligence where I explained how the 4 principles of EQ can be developed. I explained the 3 main models of EQ, and reiterated in conclusion that the amazing thing is that the essentials, competences and principles discussed in these 2 episodes – 5 and 6 – can be learnt.
In this episode, the first of 2 parts, we reviewed the work of Daniel Goleman in the origin of the phrase “emotional intelligence”, and also discussed what emotional intelligence (also emotional quotient, or EQ) can help you with. We also explained the competences, and components of emotional intelligence. We rounded off the episode with 4 Principles that makes it easy to understand EQ. It is a foundational episode in getting a firm understanding of emotional intelligence.
