This week, I invested several days in a new way (at least for me) to provide more value to my clients by becoming certified as an EQ-I and EQ 360 provider and coach.
If you’ve never heard of it EQ-I, it’s a way to better understand your Emotional Intelligence.
Emotional Intelligence is a set of emotional and social skills that influence the way you:
1. Perceive and express yourself
2. Develop and maintain social relationships
3. Cope with challenges
4. Use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way
Here’s just one of a whole bunch of things I found interesting…
Many people (leaders, employees and team members…including me) suffer from an emotional feeling called “imposter syndrome”.
Imposter Syndrome can be defined as “a collection of feelings of inadequacy that persist despite evidence of success”.
Imposters suffer from chronic self doubt and a sense of intellectual fraudulence.
Do you ever feel that way?
I have and often do!
Now, I didn’t get certified to be your shrink…but…if that’s you, join me in trying (really trying) to overcome feeling that way.
You are smart, with talents and gifts that bless the world (even if it’s just a small part of the world that surrounds you).
So, keep doing what you are doing…YOU ARE making a positive difference!
Get on out there and keep going…help someone that really needs it…because you have the skills and you are not inadequate...you are not an imposter!
And...just so you'll know...I'm very proud of you!!!
Smiles, have a GREAT week and Keep Building TRUST...Mark
