Minarni Tirta's insight:

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?):)

Article très intéressant sur l'enseignement de l'intelligence émotionnelle. Oui! Cela s'enseigne vite et bien chez l'enfant. Chez l'adulte? ... aussi! ... même si c'est un peu plus long, cabossés que nous sommes parfois par des expériences de vie professionnelle et/ou privée un peu difficiles.

Garth Sanginiti's curator insight, July 3, 2013 10:49 PM

"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.

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."

There are a few things I use to help me to "hang in there' . One is the song " you raise me up" and 'You are my hiding place" . I took solace in the lyrics of these 2 songs. two, I keep myself happy by writing blogs and finding new things to be busy with. things that are connected or related to my ultimate goal in life and in my career. These tactics keep me sane. Yes. you own your life and not the other way around! get off that sofa and start making you history..your legacy!!

We—every single one of us—spend so much of our lives remembering or regretting the past, or worrying about or planning for the future. (I sent my husband out to play fetch with our daughter in the water because I was too anxious about her being so far out, even though I could certainly keep her safe. As a result, I wasn’t able to enjoy the shovel game with her.) Contrary to popular belief, mindfulness is not about finding the joy in every moment, and mindful parenting isn’t about being the perfect parent. It’s about learning to refocus our attention, time and again, even when waves might slap us in the face and knock us off our center.
