Tips to Improve Your Emotional Intelligence

Emotional intelligence is a valuable skill in business, and one every leader should seek to hone and improve. Emotional intelligence means an understanding of how your actions, words, and aura affect the business around you. Are you helping to spread positivity in the office or are your words igniting toxicity and making those around you dread the environment you’ve created?

Here are some tips on improving your emotional intelligence.

Practice Observing Yourself

It’s difficult to be in the moment, but in our busy lifestyles it’s important to stop and have a moment of self reflection throughout the day. One helpful idea is to set a timer for a few times in your day. When that time goes off, disengage with your work and take a moment to pay attention to what’s going on with you. How are your emotions manifesting themselves physically? Do this often enough and it will become learned behavior.

Pay Attention to Your Actions

There’s a saying that actions speak louder than words. Are you thoughtfully reflecting on your behavior and how it affects the world around you? If you can learn not just to manage your emotions, but to master them, then your self awareness will improve and your work life with it.

Question Yourself

You should never find yourself relying on your own advice if you can find someone or some lesson around you to teach you better. This state of mind reflects laziness, and an unwillingness to learn. Take the time you need to reflect on your experiences, and what you hear from others. Applying the best method means learning yours isn’t always right.
