I have spent two days with these hight network professionals and will be spending the next three days with them at our prestigious Emotional Intelligence Certified Specialist course/Emotional intelligence training.
We are discussing the value of emotional intelligence and how emotions drive people, people drive the bottom line.
Here are some learning nuggets.
– Our triggers are here to teach us. They allow us to deepen our self – awareness.
– It’s poor self-esteem that places us in an adversarial relationship to our well -being.
– Our connection is the most valuable thing in the world and the depth of our connection is directly proportional to the depth of our COMMUNICATION, not our conversations.
– You can only show up fully in the world when you have done an inner work.
– When an experience is not in tune with your core values, you will most likely freeze. take to flight and fight.
– Trauma is any scenario that created tension or caused a split in your personality.
– Your MAP is the sum total of your experience and your learning.
– Emotions drive buying decisions.
– The human brain is a pattern monster.
– People act on emotion and justify with logic.
– The top five regrets of the dying, an excerpt from a book by Bronnie Ware are
1. I wish that I had let myself be happier. 2. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends. 3. I wish I hadn’t worked so hard. 4. I wish I had the courage to express my feelings. 5. I wish I had the courage to live an authentic life, not the life others expected of me. – There are four phases of Forgiveness
a) The Uncovering Phase – you will improve your understanding of the injustice and how it has impacted your life.
b) The Decision Phase – You will gain a deeper understanding of what forgiveness is and make the decision to choose or reject forgiveness as an option.
c) The Work Phase – You will understand the offender in a new way, which will allow positive feelings towards the offender and yourself.
d) The Deepening Phase – You will further decrease the negative emotions associated with the injustice. You may find meaning in the new experiences and recognise ways in which you have grown as a result.
