The most impactful this year has been a growing recognition of the power of emotions. From high-level pharma leaders, carpenters, nurses, and my new friends here at Moser, I daily see the power, good and bad, of emotions. Thanks to Dr. Izzy Justice and our partnership with Target Training International, I have continued to learn and teach:
Sit in a chair comfortably and take a few deep relaxing breaths in and out slowly
Notice 5 things that you can see around you
Hear 5 things abound you
Notice 5 feelings in your body
There are many different flavors of EQ assessments. I personally use and recommend the simplicity of Trimetrix EQ (Target Training International). This is a three-science assessment composed of DISC, Workplace Motivators (also called Driving Forces), and Emotional Intelligence. The DISC component helps you notice emotions in two ways:
The Workplace Motivators are the deep, stable part of yourself. These define the cultural values you live your life by, the friends you choose, and the people you dislike. These identify triggers that reinforce the frustration you succumb to over and over. You’ll notice the pattern through self-awareness.
Finally, the emotional intelligence part of the assessment scores you on five capacities:
The scores are irrelevant; each of these can be grown with intention any time you want. We have seen that high EQ scores often come from people who have survived difficult times and low EQ scores often come from people who have to lead a more charmed life so far.
Following the scores, each capacity will have its own page of projects to exercise your emotions. Finally, all three are integrated into a narrative describing you.
