You CAN teach an old dog new trick and you CAN develop a person’s EI:
Decades of research within psychotherapy, self help, cognitive behavioral therapy and training and development with a focus on social and emotional learning (SEL) has proven that people can change their behaviors.
How do leaders and employees develop their emotional intelligence? It all starts with building awareness. What are your strengths that you need to leverage and hone? What are your weaknesses that are getting in the way? After you build awareness, you need to figure out what the weakness is costing you and how it’s getting in your way. Finally, you need the tools and strategies to move you forward.
