Notes from article: Emotional Intelligence training does work - 08-08-2009
Finding has profound implications given the number of positive outcomes, including improved health and occupational success, that are known to be associated with having greater emotional intelligence
one recent study even found a weak link between EI and orgasm frequency in women!
After training and at 6-month follow-up, the training students but not the control students showed improvements in aspects of "trait" emotional intelligence normally considered immutable, including improvement in emotion identification and emotion management (of self and others' emotions).
Surprisingly perhaps, "emotional understanding" showed no improvement.
"Overall these results are promising," the researchers said, "as they suggest that, with a proper methodology relying on the latest scientific knowledge ... some facets of EI can be enhanced but not all."
Findings could have potential application in health, educational and organisational settings
We know EQ training works. I have plenty of testimonials from emotional intelligence training clients and coaches. Give it a try!
