Losing Your Composure

Here it is again, in some advice about dating men. This is about the emotional intelligence competency of self-awareness.

Yes, it's bad enough to lose your composure, but it's really bad to lose your composure and have no idea why. This particularly comes up in pressure situations such as job interviews, relationships discussions, and dating.

If you find yourself losing your composure
too often, letting your emotions take over and
regretting it too often after the fact... and
you're starting to recognize that not all of
what you're doing and choosing to do with a man
is totally CONSCIOUS... then it's time you took
the time and the steps to take care of what's
going on INSIDE YOU first.

If you'd like to increase your COMPOSURE, you need to increase the emotional intelligence competency of self-awareness. Let me coach you. Call me at 817-734-1471 or email me at and let's get started now. I am a certified EQ (emotional intelligence) coach.

Tight Job Market - all the more need for emotional intelligence

Emotional Intelligence is in the news more all the time. Those of us who were early adopters know why. With the economy in the shape it's in, there is more stress for everyone AND there is more competition for the jobs that are available. As we've said all along, if two people have equal intelligence, skills, and experience, which one is going to get hired?

The answer: The one YOU would want to work with.

Which means the one with the higher emotional intelligence.

Let me help you improve yours. Here are some of the complaints that HR people have when they interview candidates:

** They act like a robot.
** She got hysterical just in an interview session.
** She got so nervous when I asked her questions, I wondered how she would make it through the interview.
** Even with simple questions, he got defensive. I couldn't imagine asking our employees to work with him.
** He was abrasive. I would not ask one of our managers to have him in their department.
** Looked good on paper. In person she was just plain out annoying.

Email me for coaching at and let's get started. This tight market means you need help with stress AND with interview techniques. Let's say personality, and emotional intelligence.
