8 Ways Emotionally Intelligent People Deal With Toxic People

8 Ways Emotionally Intelligent People Deal With Toxic People | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it

Life is stressful enough for most of us. Allowing a toxic individual to ravage your immediate environment can cause havoc in your mental well-being, which can lead to physical challenges.

A bad state of mind not only affects your physical well-being but makes it difficult for you to respond calmly under pressure. Ninety percent of top performers are skilled at managing their emotions, so your ability to perform effectively can be affected if you do not adopt strategies that will allow you to deal with toxic people.

Don Wilson's curator insight, July 13, 12:52 PM

Emotional Intelligence is a great skill to possess. It will truly benefit your life and everyone around you. If you are a student, parent, husband, wife, employee, employer; entrepreneur, teacher, preacher. If you are a man woman, or child, EI, can help you release damaging toxins, left by toxic people (and you too) that add undue stress, tension, and pressure; and free yourself, by improving your mental state, which in turn, increases your health and performance.

 

Other benefits include, but are not limited to; lower blood pressure and hyper-tension, blood sugar levels (diabetes), headaches, back and stomach pain. Paranoia, anxiety, and other related symptoms.

 

I am a student and practitioner of EI; and I have grown and benefited from it greatly, and so can you.

Great Ways to Deal with Toxic People! 

Alicia Newton's curator insight, July 14, 9:07 AM

Great article on avoiding the quicksand of toxic people. I practice many of these techniques. Boundaries; many you will have to love from a distance and it's ok. Being clear that just because people have the right to say what they want doesn't make it true about you; keep it moving. There will be positive & negative people. You get to choose who you will lend your energy to.

Study: Empathy Training: Methods, Evaluation Practices, and Validity

Study: Empathy Training: Methods, Evaluation Practices, and Validity | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it

Tony Chiu Ming Lam, Klodiana Kolomitro, Flanny C. Alamparambil

 

Background: Empathy is an individual’s capacity to understand the behavior of others, to experience their feelings, and to express that understanding to them. Empathic ability is an asset professionally for individuals, such as teachers, physicians and social workers, who work with people.  

 

Being empathetic is also critical to our being able to live with others in general, and ultimately to leading happier lives. Subsequently it seems imperative to examine if and how it is possible to enhance people’s empathic ability.

 

Purpose: The purpose of this article is to use narrative review method to analyze studies of empathy training in human service and social science disciplines over the past thirty years to address the questions:

“How have people been trained in empathy and what are the findings?” and“How was empathy training evaluated and how valid are these evaluation findings?”

BiblioInstruccion / Gerinaldo Camacho's curator insight, August 28, 8:36 PM
El artículo expone lo que muchos bibliotecarios ya sabemos sobre la evolución de las bibliotecas a unas de mayor dinamismo e innovación. Fenómenos como la crisis económica, los libros electrónicos, el internet y la globalización han provocado un cambio en la cultura de las bibliotecas. Ya sólo el contar con libros y espacios de silencio satisfacen las necesidades de unas nuevas generaciones de usuarios que quieren trabajan en ambientes de colaboración, de innovación y tecnológicos. Las bibliotecas deben dirigirse a establecer áreas para lecturas en silencio, áreas para conversar, áreas de servicios y enseñanza de las destrezas de información y finalmente áreas de innovación tecnológica. Las áreas de innovación tecnológicas se componen de los llamados "media lab" quienes además de computadoras poseen otros tipos de artefactos como los 3d printer, programados de edición de video y audio, entre otros. En Puerto Rico esta visión aún está lejos de lograrse en muchas de nuestras instituciones, es por ello que en ocasiones se pronostica la muerte de las bibliotecas, es el momento de llevar a los que toman las decisiones sobre esta visión transformadora y participativa de la biblioteca del siglo 21.

How to update your resume in 30 minutes - and make an impression in no time

How to update your resume in 30 minutes - and make an impression in no time | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it

Let's start with the good news: You just bumped into a well-connected person and impressed the heck out of her. So much so, in fact, that she asked you to follow up with your resume, because she knows someone who's hiring.

You're feeling pretty great. But before you decide which dancing animal GIF accurately sums up your networking victory, you have some work to do. Because, the last time you even thought about your resume was before you got your recent job or started your side gig, and it's seriously out of date.

Well, it's time to open that old document, save it under a new name, and get typing. Here's how to update your resume — fast

Social media and really anything digital is setup to be a near-constant stream of editorialized data. That means, we pick which bits and bytes we share. In doing so, we’re only showing a curated view of ourselves with the world. Yes, that editorial can be honest and real, but it’s only a piece of our lives.

Giorgina Gilardi's curator insight, August 28, 2:00 AM
Alcuni di questi consigli sono propri del sistema scuola americano, ma la maggior parte mi sembrano molto validi: 1) non ripetere a pappagallo, ma rielaborare; 2) porsi domande 3) visualizzare attraverso disegni 4) non fare la sgobbata finale, ma diluire l'apprendimento nel tempo Mi hanno impressionato i consigli per gli insegnanti, e in particolare: mischiare le lezioni tra di loro (questi hanno lezioni preconfezionate), ritornare su concetti precedenti e spaziare.

What students say and do and create are products of thought processes that, more or less, are predictable–and of significant potential if we can make those processes visible. The question becomes then, what should we make visible, how, and to whom?

Why We Can No Longer Rely Only On Schools And Companies For Professional And Personal Development

Why We Can No Longer Rely Only On Schools And Companies For Professional And Personal Development | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it

There once was a time where everything you needed to know for your career was taught to you by the educational institution you attended and the company you worked for. You would go get your four year bachelor’s degree in whatever topic and that information would stay with you for a little while, then you would periodically take some additional classes offered through your company.

 

Today by the time you graduate with a four year college degree most of the information you will learn will be outdated and perhaps obsolete.

 

The world has changed and it’s up to us as individuals (and as companies) to make sure that we can change too. Organizations must enable employees by deploying the right technologies to connect people and by supporting employees and allowing them learn outside of the company. Individuals must get rid of all excuses and understand that they can learn anything they want anytime they want to learn it.
