5 Emotional Intelligence WHAT IS EMOTION Emotion is...
A mental and physiological (mind & body) state associated with a wide variety of feelings, thoughts, and behavior.
Emotions are subjective experiences, i.e., experienced from an individual point of view.
Mood is often associated with emotions, temperament, personality, & disposition. An overt or prevailing emotional tone or general attitude. What are some emotions? The difference between emotion and mood. 1. Mood is something a person may not express whereas emotions may be expressed.

2. Mood may last for a long period whereas emotions may last only for the time being.

3. Emotions are aroused in people by some specific objects or situations. On the other hand, moods are not created in someone because of any specific object or any particular situation.

4. If a person gets angry, he expresses that emotion towards someone. If a person is in a sad mood, he cannot express it to others.

5. When compared to moods, emotions are more extreme.

6. Emotion is a word that has been derived from the French emouvoir.

7. Mood is a word that is derived from the Old English word of Mod, which represented military courage. EMOTIONS Emotional Highs! (Cresting) Emotional Lows! CRASH!!! Riding High...then? You Hit Rock Bottom and Depression Peak of your emotions.
On top of the WORLD!!! You don't have to become a victim of your emotions. Emotions do not define us.
They are a form of internal communication that helps us to understand ourselves.
Who is responsible for your behavior? YOU. -DEALING WITH YOUR FEELINGS- Parts to taking of your emotions . CONTROL 1. Knowing one's emotions 2. Managing emotions 3. Motivating oneself 4. Recognizing emotions in others 5. Handling relationships Thank you for your time. Self- awareness is the keystone of EQ.
This is the ability to monitor feelings from moment to moment.
An inability to recognize feelings leaves us at the mercy of others.
People who possess this ability are more confident and feel more in control of their decisions and life direction. Handling feelings so they are appropriate builds self-awareness.
This includes the capacity to soothe oneself and shake off rampant anxiety, gloom, or irritability.
People who have difficulty with this constantly battle feelings of distress, whereas those who excel can bounce back from life's setbacks.
If you OWN the emotion - - - you can control it. This capacity is essential to paying attention, goal setting and achievement, mastery, and creativity.
Part of emotion is self-control - delaying gratification and stifling impulsiveness.
When this happens you can experience a feeling of "flow," or being in the "groove."
Conversely, if you are anxious, angry, or depressed - - - you cannot learn efficiently because you cannot process information effectively.
If you are distracted by your emotions, you become crippled by them. Empathy builds on self-awareness; the more open we are in our own emotions, the more skilled we are in reading feelings from nonverbal clues.
There is a high social cost to being emotionally tone deaf to others! However, empathy is the foundation for altruism. Empathic people are attuned to the subtle social signals that indicate needs and desires.
That capacity comes into play in sales and management, romance and parenting, compassion and politics.
The benefits of empathy include being better adjusted emotionally, more popular, more outgoing, and more sensitive. The art of the “relationship” is mostly skill in how you handle others' emotions toward you.
Social competence skills under gird (i.e., support, bind, tighten) popularity, leadership, and interpersonal effectiveness.
People who excel in these abilities interact smoothly with others because they have the ability to know another's feelings and act in a way to further shape those feelings.
It’s not just about YOU anymore. But everyone around you. CULTURE Knowing and understanding culture; the facial expressions, gestures, tone of voice, etc. is the hallmark of effective communication.
Fine tuning your observation and balanced use of these within the genuine, sincere, and authentic boundaries of your emotions can become a great gift.
However, if you allow negative emotions to creep continually into your mind, if not consciously managed, they transform into moods.
If a mood is consistent over time these eventually turn into traits of temperament.
A sweet, happy child could become a grumpy, bitter adult. That is, without continual self-monitoring and managing the state of mind. What is it? Ability to manage emotions in one’s self and in others in order to reach desired outcomes. Emotional intelligence impacts many different aspects of your daily life, such as the way you behave and the way you interact with others.

If you have a high emotional intelligence you are able to recognize your own emotional state and the emotional states of others and engage with people in a way that draws them to you.

You can use this understanding of emotions to relate better to other people, form healthier relationships, achieve greater success at work, and lead a more fulfilling life. WHY IS IT IMPORTANT? Your performance at work.
Emotional intelligence can help you navigate the social complexities of the workplace, lead and motivate others, and excel in your career. In fact, when it comes to gauging job candidates, many companies now view emotional intelligence as being as important as technical ability and require EQ testing before hiring.
Your physical health.
If you’re unable to manage your stress levels, it can lead to serious health problems. Uncontrolled stress can raise blood pressure, suppress the immune system, increase the risk of heart attack and stroke, contribute to infertility, and speed up the aging process. The first step to improving emotional intelligence is to learn how to relieve stress.
Your mental health.
Uncontrolled stress can also impact your mental health, making you vulnerable to anxiety and depression. If you are unable to understand and manage your emotions, you’ll also be open to mood swings, while an inability to form strong relationships can leave you feeling lonely and isolated.
Your relationships.
By understanding your emotions and how to control them, you’re better able to express how you feel and understand how others are feeling. This allows you to communicate more effectively and forge stronger relationships, both at work and in your personal life. 5 Developing emotional intelligence
