CEO Coach Robinson Blog # Eight- Emotional Intelligence 2.0 equals emotional contagion.

by jeremy.robinson on October 4, 2010

Many people are put off by the term emotional intelligence because it sounds academic.  There’s a quick equation I use for emotional intelligence to make it more user friendly. I ask my Client to think of it  in terms of positive or negative contagion.  How contagious are you?  Do you attract people to you?  Or do you repel them as if you had some kind of personal bug spray? [Most of us do both at varying times].  What can you do to be more welcoming to others?  How can you cut down on your negativity? [I’m assuming you want to!]  This plus or minus calculation gives us fast, practical access to our emotional intelligence and that of others.
