Most people think that emotional intelligence is a field started in the 1980's by Daniel Goleman. He did put emotional intelligence on the map, but he isn't a researcher himself. Before Daniel Goleman, many prominent researchers studied emotions. In addition to that, philosophers from Aristotle to Jean-Paul Sartre explored elements of emotional intelligence. This course gives you a broader view of emotional intelligence.

If you wanted to become more intelligent (not just iQ) and train your brain to work faster and more efficiently, then you instead need to

1) Train your working memory 

2) Use physical coordination challenges to stimulate your brain to grow new brain cells through the production of brain derived neurotrophic factor, a type of growth hormone that produces new brain cells.

+ EQ
25 lectures 02:14:56

Whoever studies EQ has advantage because almost no one ever studies it.

- Emotions influence behavior so knowing which emotions you have and how to channel them will help you have more positive emotions and more benefitial behavior

- You talk to yourself differently when u r happy or sad. You see the same situation diff when angry or happy.- There is an emotional element to every human interaction!

Intro to EQ - most people don't develop or pay attention to it
Do emotions happen to you or do you make the emotions?
Self-awareness: Five-step formula for controlling your own emotions

- Handling distressing emotions in a positive way so that they don't cripple you or lead you to destructive actions

- Mood management: ability to shake off bad moods and get into productive moods

- Self-motivation: ability to get yourself to do productive tasks. How good are you at doing things you don't like doing?

- Moods are contagious. Lead with necessary moods and transfer them onto people rather than being passive and have things develop. So make sure you don't have bad moods like anxiety because as a leader you can make that mood permeate the organization.

- Angry or anxious or irritated? Slow yourself down.

- Tension is first stage of anger arousal. Stressors that might lead you to flip out one day are no big deal another day when you are relaxed

Self awareness exercise: What emotions do you experience during the workday?
Self-control: Making you do things you avoid doing

How I use empathy in sales

Emotions leak out through these:

E - eye contact, initial connection

M - muscles of facial expression and a roadmap of human emotion

P - posture - signals approach and avoid signals

A - Affect - expressed emotions. Try to label and identify people's emotions

T - Tone - you can tell a lot from the tone

H - Hearing - hearing the whole person and also understanding the full context of where/how people live

Y - Your response - our inner experiences and feelings mirror those of others

We are wired for empathy because our survival depends on it.

How to keep your brain sharp long-term

Significant physiological changes to your whole body.

During stress, adrenal glands get activated, body takes on the fight or flight mode, and only looks for essentials and everything else gets disregarded or adds to stess.

Brain supresses your pre-frontal cortex, which is the part of the brain that does the thinking. So you just emotionally react.

Chronic stress can shrink your brain volume over time. Stress can kill brain cells, especially in areas of the brain connected with memory or learning. Creates extra fear and anxiety. It reinforces the stress from original cause of stress.

Brain can depleate your brain of nutrients/chemicals and make your brain sluggish and inefficient.

Causes difficulty to focus, learning, concentrating, poor sleep, racing thoughts and anxirty,,
