EP 025: What is Emotional Intelligence
Emotional intelligence refers to the ability to identify and manage one’s own emotions, as well as the emotions of others.   Emotional intelligence is generally said to include at least three skills: emotional awareness, or the ability to identify and name one’s own emotions; the ability to harness those emotions and apply them to tasks like thinking and problem solving; and the ability to manage emotions, which includes both regulating one’s own emotions when necessary and helping others to do the same.  It also requires a healthy aspect of our social awareness and the social skills we can use as it relates to productivity.   Take the EQ assessment here: https://www.ihhp.com/free-eq-quiz/ ____________________________________________________________________   Email: juan@lifefocuscenternj.org   Website: https://www.juangarciaenterprises.com   Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/juan_a_garcia_   Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Juan-Garcia-Enterprises-640059186622038/?modal=admin_todo_tour   Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/juangarciaenterprises

EP 008: Unconscious Biases - What Are They and How do They Affect Me or Others
Our brains work very hard everyday to process all the information and stimuli we are exposted too.  For that reason, it takes shortcuts throughout the day to make sure of things are safe.  It filters background information, personal experiences, societal stereotypes and cultural context.   For that reason, we all have unconscious biases that help us deal with the 'here and now'.  But not all of those biases are healthy.   MRI Studies of Unconscious Biases in the Brain: https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/the-media-psychology-effect/201604/mris-reveal-unconscious-bias-in-the-brain   Neural Pathways of Prejudice: https://www.kornferry.com/insights/articles/understanding-bias-and-brain   Research Studies from Spectra University https://www.spectradiversity.com/2017/12/27/unconscious-bias/
