We all have an inner, EQ-savvy voice that tells us when we need to have a difficult conversation with someone... Do it... these should help!

Patricia Clason's curator insight, March 29, 2013 9:13 AM

Great ideas, add this one: Appreciate what is good about your difficult person. It shifts your attitude about the person and the conversation!

Garth Sanginiti's curator insight, July 24, 2013 8:33 PM

"The consequence of not having that uncomfortable conversation is costly. A CPP Inc. study of workplace conflict reveals that employees in the U.S. spend roughly 2.8 hours per week dealing with conflict. Thirty-three percent of employees report that the conflict led to personal injury and attacks, and 22 percent report that it led to illness and absence from work. Ten percent report that project failure was a direct result of conflict. A similar study by Psychometrics in Canada, showed that 32 percent of employees have to deal with conflict regularly. More alarming is a recent study by Accenture revealing that, even in this challenging economic climate, 35 percent of employees leave their jobs voluntarily because of internal politics."

I Cry, Therefore I Am

I Cry, Therefore I Am | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Shedding tears of emotion was vital for human evolution and the rise of cultures.  Surveys estimate that 85 percent of women and 73 percent of men report feeling better after shedding tears.  Crying as an embodiment of empathy is, I maintain, unique to humans and has played an essential role in human evolution and the development of human cultures.

Humans Can't Be Empathetic And Logical At The Same Time

Humans Can't Be Empathetic And Logical At The Same Time | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Brain scans find that the two modes are mutually exclusive. Logic and emotion tend to be considered as polar opposites.  When feelings go up, logic goes down, so we'd better understand our feelings, and the effects they have on our decisions, actions, behaviours and lives!

How to Deal with Guilt – What You Can Learn from Guilt - Oprah.com

How to Deal with Guilt – What You Can Learn from Guilt - Oprah.com | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

The author and founder of the Seat of the Soul Institute shows us how to work through one of life’s most challenging emotions.

Gary says that guilt "serves no constructive purpose", but I disagree.  There's a type of guilt that I call "Productive Guilt" (as opposed to "Punishing Guilt") can be constructive, educational, motivational and even transformational.  There have been somethings I've done in my life that I wasn't very proud of, and I found that if I "forgive myself" right away, I may forget the lesson -- only feeling guilty in a way that can help me make DARNED SURE I never do that behaviour again, helps me remember and ensures change.  Whatchathink?

What’s YOUR Masculine Emotional Intelligence™ Quotient?

What’s YOUR Masculine Emotional Intelligence™ Quotient? | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

What's your Masculine Emotional Intelligence Quotient (EQ)?

Masculine Emotional Intelligence™ represents what it means to be a man whose emotions are your allies. You build on general emotional intelligence with the essence of masculinity. You are your own man. 

The short course:
Feel:  Feel your emotions and your body’s experience of them.
Be OK:  Be ok with your emotions, learn to accept them.
Express: Once you feel them, express them – both the good and the bad.
Risk: Risk sharing your emotions beyond your previous boundaries. It’s not about going into some tirade of reactions; it’s about being vulnerable and real, as you express.
