Can You Really Improve Your Emotional Intelligence?

Can You Really Improve Your Emotional Intelligence? | cognitive coaching | Scoop.it
It's a noble quest, but a tough one.

 

Most coaching interventions try to enhance some aspect of EQ, usually under the name of social, interpersonal, or soft skills training. The underlying reasoning is that, whereas IQ is very hard to change, EQ can increase with deliberate practice and training.

But what is the evidence? For example, if you've been told you need to keep your temper under control, show more empathy for others, or be a better listener, what are the odds you can really do it? How do you know if your efforts will pay off, and which interventions will be most effective?

Nearly 3,000 scientific articles have been published on EQ since the concept was first introduced in 1990, and there are five key points to consider:

 

1. Your level of EQ is firm, but not rigid.

 

2. Good coaching programs do work.

 

3. But you can only improve if you get accurate feedback.

 

4. Some techniques (and coaches) are more competent than others.

 

5. Some people are more coachable than others.

Actually, we are very, very different from each other, especially what regards motivation (while very similar in some other aspects...). Well, there are some who would die for the law of attraction and there are some to whom it's something very biased... (with a slight understatement..). For the latter bunch of people could the attached article a relief...

Power Tool: Gratitude Vs. Blame

Power Tool: Gratitude Vs. Blame | cognitive coaching | Scoop.it

 By: Moushumi Bose 

"When in a coaching discussion, the coach finds the client in a frame of blame, the other extreme perspective to bring about is gratitude. Especially while the coaching discussion is on , if the client tables an incident where he/she is weighed down in significance with a negative feeling , bringing in awareness and gratitude to the forefront towards the end of the session around the same incident /person will help in reframing perspectives in the future. To bring to surface the feeling of gratitude in this so called ‘negative’ situation is to see the silver lining around the grey cloud."

How To Ask--And Listen--Like You Mean It - The Power of Authentic Questions

How To Ask--And Listen--Like You Mean It - The Power of Authentic Questions | cognitive coaching | Scoop.it

Questions are the expressive, probing language for growing others; listening is the receptive, facilitating language for growing others. These two complementary approaches form a continuous growth conversation loop. The deeper the questions, the deeper the listening; the deeper the listening, the deeper the next question. As we dig together with each tool, we mutually excavate new discoveries. As a result, the learning is never one-sided; it is a co-created process that engenders empathy, trust, and collaboration.

 

The Power Of Authentic Questions

 

Innovators working on solving problems and coming up with creative solutions rely on crafting the right questions. Leaders who are helping others to grow and innovate are always trying to craft the best questions to make a difference. Not only do innovators make asking questions an integral part of their lives, and ask more questions than non-innovators, they also ask more provocative ones--questions that provoke deep insight and understanding. Developing other leaders through questioning not only helps them grow, but it forces them to own their unique learning experiences.

Over the past three years I have, in my opinion, dramatically grown as a school leader.  The catalyst for a significant portion of this growth was my embracement of social media as a powerful leadership tool.  For me social media opened the door to a variety of pathways to enhance my ability to lead a comprehensive high school is a way that was more relevant, meaningful, and impactful.

There is a development process in becoming a better coach or learning how to motivate others to learn and change. As the coach develops his/her perspective and skill, he/she moves from a focus on the problem to a focus on the process (the interactions with the other person) and then to a focus on the person.

Heart to Heart Talks – Three Steps to Discuss the Elephant in the Room

Heart to Heart Talks – Three Steps to Discuss the Elephant in the Room | cognitive coaching | Scoop.it
 Everyone on the team knew the elephant was in the room, but no one wanted to talk about it.

 

At the root of many of our interpersonal or team conflicts is a failure to communicate. Sometimes the problem is that information isn’t shared broadly enough and people become resentful because they weren’t included. Other times we say things that come out wrong and people are offended, even though we may have had good intentions behind our message. Regardless of how the situation was created, if we don’t take the time to thoughtfully address it, the miscommunication evolves into the “elephant in the room” that everyone knows is present but isn’t willing to address.

 

Recently I worked with a client where the elephant in the room had been present for nearly a year. The issue within this team had led to a fracture in what were previously very close relationships, had tarnished the team’s reputation within the organization, and was causing strife and turmoil that was affecting the team’s performance. Everyone on the team knew the elephant was in the room, but no one wanted to talk about it.
