EP: 55 Emotional Intelligence in a Changing Workplace with Sonal Sheth Zawahri

We’ve touched on the topic of emotional intelligence during the podcast before, but not as the depth as today’s show.

So, what is emotional intelligence or EQ for short? Emotional intelligence is the ability to understand, use, and manage your own emotions in positive ways to relieve stress, communicate effectively, empathize with others, overcome challenges and defuse conflict.

Why should we care about emotional intelligence? If you just focus on getting tasks done without keying into your emotions or the emotions of others you can really miss the undertone of a work or personal situation, be perceived incorrectly, miss opportunities, and more. Being a good leader (whether that’s an individual employee or a leader of a group) isn’t just about completing tasks.

As we know, we can have robots complete tasks. It’s the emotional component and learning how to understand ourselves and others that set us apart. And here’s the great news! You can learn and develop your emotional intelligence skills!

During my conversation today with my guest, Sonal Sheth-Zawahri, we go into more detail on emotional intelligence, how this skill is important in today’s changing workplace, and how we can hone it to reach our goals personally and professionally.

Listen in to this show to hone your emotional intelligence muscles!

Book Your Discovery Call

How much would you give to sit across a coach who was trained to help women just like you get clear, overcome their obstacles and take action to achieve their career goals? Well, for anyone serious about their career, the price would be quite high and worth every penny. But for a short time, for a small number of people, I’m offering that opportunity…without charge.

That’s right, with my Discovery Call you have the chance to work with me one on one, absolutely free. Typically a session like this is $250, but I’m waiving the fee for anyone who applies today.

Because I hold these calls personally, there are very few spots available, so if you’re serious about about finding your dream career and would like the guidance and support of a trained expert, use the calendar provided to apply for your session now.
