Absolutely!  "Help This Person" changes everything about how you feel and how you connect with others.  Try it!

Ken Donaldson's curator insight, July 1, 2013 11:04 AM

"Help this person..." three simple words that make a world of difference.

Garth Sanginiti's curator insight, July 3, 2013 10:39 PM

"For those of us with a soul and a heart, the only real choice is to succeed by helping others.  By first thinking help this person, you will change the ways that others perceive you. There is no faster or more effective way to change your interactions and relationships. You will be viewed as a positive, constructive, helpful and dependable person. People will think you are more perceptive, attentive and understanding."

Why You Should Pay Children To Be Emotionally Intelligent » Six Seconds | Positive futures | Scoop.it

What a child wants most of all is attention. That is his currency. So when we want her to be thoughtful of others, empathic and kind, we need to give her lots of attention when we see it happening.

And one way to do that successfully, over time, in our busy world is through tokens of our appreciation. Yes, that’s right, we have to pay them.

EQ really rocks! its presence is subtle but the result is real! To illustrate this :I was looking for my friend in one of those employment agencies when the scenario unfold.Later, I found out a little bit more about  " the offender" as I felt so sorry for her and chatted with her. Apparently 'the offender' is a trainer but was unfortunately finding it hard to land herself a job in the new land she just came to. She was 'enrolled' in one of the government's employment agencies, which was supposed to help her find a job ( by sending her CV to reverse marketers, setting up seminars for her to attend - on revamping CV and tailoring her cover letter to the job she is applying.) She was glad as these means she will also find new friends. One day she said she made a pact with her new found friends to practice one of her tools that she uses in her coaching/ training business. She was practicing one of her tools in one of the rooms in that organisation, when someone came up to her asked her what she was doing ( as it seemed to the untrained eyes, she was playing a board game but once she explained it, that someone told her that she needed to book the room first. So she duly waited for the manager and put what she was doing on hold. The way the manager came  & told the "offender" that was definitely not fitting what I expect of a manager. ( this was the part where I  actually the witnessed) I looked at the unfolding scenario with a sense of disbelieved.  While the manager maybe correct (all organisations have in place their rules and regulations), the way 'the offender' was being handled was really demeaning and lacking of respect.  Instead of saying "I am sorry but this place is strictly for job searching only and you will need to practice elsewhere"( or something along the line) , she came up with words that were quite hurtful and the attitude was one of " I am the rule here, follow or out". what makes it worse was the fact it was on the public domain part of the organisation.Undoubtedly 'the offender' reacted in ways fished out by the manager heavy handling of her(she later told me) . She felt like a criminal and at any one time, there were 2 people ( the manager and another sturdy man, next to the manager, ever ready to bounce her from the organisation).

 

understandably the manager has to be firm and stern as some of the unemployed probably already demoralized and not themselves, can be insensitive or even unreasonable, but I wonder at the same time, if the manager was also proactively looking for that kind of behaviour by the way she handled the 'offender'?

ALL jobs need EQ, but especailly so with jobs that connect you with others and jobs that need you to built human relationship, having human touch. With EQ tools we will be able to diffuse the situation in a better way. Like everything else EQ gets better with more practice. so kids and EQ is definitely a good idea, no, It is a great idea! and it is definitely "TAUGHTABLE!" ( did I just coined a new word?):)

"At a recent congressional hearing, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan agreed with Shriver’s positive assessment of SEL’s potential. "These are learned skills," he said. "Children can have huge challenges, but when you help them learn how to handle them, you have a chance … If we are not addressing this, we're not in the game."

John Michel's curator insight, July 4, 2013 1:55 PM

Empowering students with tools and techniques to calm themselves, observe the world, and exert positive pressure on their environments reduces the distraction caused by inner and outer turmoil, freeing kids up to concentrate more effectively on the rest of what they are learning. In this way, SEL not only helps enhance students’ emotional wellbeing and maturity but also improves their academic achievement.

David Hain's insight:

I wholeheartedly support this! Recent stats here suggest that the suicide rates are rising, better understanding/ self knowledge and empathy skills will reduce this.

 

Watch and share!

EQRocks's curator insight, January 29, 2013 1:11 AM

A passionate plea to add SEL/EQ training as required core curriculum in all high schools. Five more Canadian teens commit suicide after being bullied.

The proposed course would teach empowerment and self-coaching skills:
- How to shift your thoughts and choose positivity.
- How to accept imperfection and feel worthy and good enough
- How to develop empathy, sensitivity and mindfulness
- How to let go of judgement and labels
- How to communicate compassionately and effectively

Employers want "Emotional Intelligence"!

So why does this matter in a job interview?

Often times, someone with strong Emotional Intelligence (EI) is perceived to have very strong communication skills, or to be “quick” or ‘“on the ball”.  Any employer would like to hire someone that’s quick to understand and effectively communicate and address concerns with others!
