Emotional intelligence, also known as EI or EQ (for Emotional Intelligence Quotient), describes a person's ability to recognize emotions, to understand their powerful effect, and to use that information to guide thinking and behavior. Since EI helps you to better understand yourself--and others--a high EQ increases your chances for successfully achieving goals.
But is there a way to increase your emotional intelligence?
In their seminal research and publication, The Emotionally Intelligent Manager, professors David R. Caruso and Peter Salovey broke down four of the core skills involved in developing emotional intelligence:
1. Identifying your feelings and those of others
2. Using feelings to guide your own thinking and reasoning, along with others
3. Understanding how feelings might change and develop as events unfold
4. Managing to stay open to the data of feelings and integrate this into decisions and actions
What is the blockchain? If you don't know, you should; if you do, chances are you still need some clarification on how it actually works. Don Tapscott is here to help, demystifying this world-changing, trust-building technology which, he says, represents nothing less than the second generation of the internet and holds the potential to transform money, business, government and society.
It was my privilege to serve for over 30 years the customers, employees, and shareholders of one of the most respected Fortune 50 brands in the world, Caterpillar Inc. That association provided my family and me opportunities to live in Asia, Europe, and North America and … Continue reading What is the Foundation of Innovation?
Nous avons déjà présenté Dirk Helbing : il est celui, qui, à Zurich, dirige le projet FuturICT qui cherche à simuler le monde. Dans un récent long post sur son blog, il ajoute plusieurs éléments au débat sur la stagnation de l’innovation, que nous avons mentionné à plusieurs reprises dans nos colonnes.Il rejoint donc tous ceux qui, à l’instar de Richard Jones ou Neal Stephenson pensent que les choses ne vont pas aussi vite qu’elles devraient, que la notion d’accélération de l’innovation qu’on nous sert souvent est un mythe.
Au contraire, précise-t-il, nous nous montrons incapables de résoudre des problèmes maintenant posés depuis plusieurs décennies. Ainsi, on connait l’existence du changement climatique depuis les années 60 et aucune innovation n’a pu le stopper. Helbing ne nie pas bien sûr l’existence de progrès technologiques énormes, comme dans le domaine de l’automatisation, mais justement, précise-t-il, cette robotisation à outrance risque de faire perdre des milliers d’emplois et favoriser une précarité grandissante. Il est donc nécessaire là aussi d’encourager l’innovation dans les domaines économico-sociaux pour intégrer cette brusque mutation technologique. Et là encore, nous sommes loin de répondre assez vite.
Maybe you've heard, being constantly busy is bad for your brain. "Many important mental processes seem to require what we call downtime and other forms of rest during the day," claims a Scientific American article rounding up the research on the subject. Doing nothing now and then is required to replenish motivation and attention, and to form stable memories, science shows.
It's also required for maximum creativity, according to new research.
Your cluttered mind is a creativity killer
The study comes out of Bar-Ilan University in Israel, where researchers Shira Baror and Moshe Bar asked a group of volunteers to complete a creativity-gauging word association task. For instance, if the researchers said "white," the participants were asked to name whatever related word first popped into their heads.
Now here's the twist. The participants had to do this while carrying various mental "loads." Some were simultaneously asked to remember a string of seven digits, while others had to commit only two to memory. How did their performance differ?
