Want To Advance Your Career? Then Work On Your EQ
In case you don’t yet feel it, emotional intelligence—the ability regulate emotions in one’s self and identify emotions in others—is a predictor of workplace success, both for employees and managers.
Taken together, emotional intelligence—and its associated intuitions—may be helpful for leaders, teams, and companies looking to grow (and create). Drawing from Daniel Goleman’s landmark Emotional Intelligence, Ebokosia describes its five factors of Emotional Intellgience as such:
- Empathy: The ability to shift perspectives and gain a better understanding of others, or, in fancy-pants language, “inter-subjectivize.”
- Motivation: The driving force(s) of your actions. Your compass, north star, wayfinding. Your interior cartographic prowess.
- Self-regulation: Being able to deal with your own emotions before they deal with you. Linked with delaying gratification and not eating the marshmallow.
- Social skills: Knowing what to say in order to engage your team—and knowing how not to offend them.
- Self-awareness: Understanding your own emotions improves your interactions, since getting intimate with your feelings lets you better understand how they affect others.

We can rightly judge a society by how it treats its eccentrics and deviant geniuses—and by that measure, we have utterly failed.
So some of the producers around here — when they haven’t been working on this show — have been working on another show. It’s called “Just You Wait”, it’s broadcast out of the WHYY station here in Philly and our/their producer Annmarie says this about it:
Just You Wait is a new program which looks at new trends and ideas in pop culture, art, technology, entertainment and daily life. Our own John Sheehan is the host of the show, and for this pilot episode, John Myers reports on digital detoxing, Therese Madden tells us about a new way of buying art, Amy Salit gives her picks for some new music, and I talk about online TV programming in 2013, which includes new episodes of Arrested Development.
Give ‘em a listen if you can!
