Emotional intelligence – why it can matter more than IQ. Whenever we get emotionally triggered, its usually a person or circumstance that pulls the ‘trigger’. But who’s the one carrying the ammunition? Understand that you are the one that carry all the explosives inside of you and you gain so much liberation when you learn what that ammunition is and how it got it inside of you, by getting to know yourself. This is where freedom lies, in the ability to discipline your emotions to influence the best outcomes. We view the world through an emotional lens, from the moment we wake up.
How we talk to ourselves in the morning will affect our emotional state and will determine how our day unfolds and how we interact with others. Emotions control our actions, and for the most part we only realise their impact when it’s too late. By establishing techniques to be able to observe the build-up of our emotions, we can seemingly control the outcomes of everyday circumstances for the better. We can then outwardly become creative, influencing positive change in our lives. This then provides us with the stepping stones we need to reach our goals, and to competently resolve any problems we may face along the way.
Tim Dorsett, Innocent Drinks – 2:30 – 3:30 pm
Tim Dorsett has been at innocent drinks for nine years with one mission – to help people work better and go home happy. Tim’s role at innocent as the Internal Communications Manager helps him to make sure that the company environment, well-being, and culture reflects this mission!
