Good morning everyone! I have been having a great time meeting with my executive coaching clients this month. The topic of the month is using emotional intelligence in leadership! Leaders with high IQ do well; leaders with high EQ do way better and those with high Positivity along with the other two are the stars. So, accordingly, my clients have asked for exercises to use “in the field of life” and here is one I adapted from Relly Nadler’s book, leading with emotional intelligence. It goes like this:

2. An interesting way to use this tool is to apply it in situations where you are handling things really well too:
3. Write in your journal each week – one or two examples of the above
I look forward to hearing how this experience was for you!
