Emotional Wellbeing at Work
Would you be able to run after your objectives despite deterrents? Do you give up too soon? Do you have a negative standpoint or an uplifting perspective? These are some of the emotional intelligence puzzles that need to be sorted for progress at work.
The real question about knowing one's EQ has to be assessed by the relationships and rapport-building skills. Can you tune in to other people? I once happened to come across two different sorts of managers at my office- an efficient and an inefficient manager. One who would always supervise his fellow subordinates had graduated from a prestigious university and another one was a graduate from an average university who is friendly to his fellow subordinates. You would have guessed by now who exactly is an efficient leader. Obviously, the one who is friendly with his team members. When there is a social connection within the team, that is when it achieves progress. These are great leadership skills that bring out extraordinary outputs from normal people.
The Key to achieving such an efficiency requires the below to be imbibed:
- Self Awareness
- Ability to balance emotions
- Healthy social interactions
- Making the right decisions.
All of these four strengths require one common fruit in your spirit- Patience. It is the prerequisite you need to incorporate to mold yourself to be the efficient person you want to be at the workplace. You know, I love this verse from the Bible-Proverbs 14:29 Whoever is patient has great understanding, but one who is quick-tempered displays folly.
Whoever is patient, has an understanding of himself leading to self-awareness. The very patience enables one to have proper balance in emotions, leading to healthy social connections. After a deep understanding of oneself and other colleagues, he/she achieves at bringing out best results.
Any organization that you associate with is always result-driven rather than being brand-conscious. Let us dive into why emotional intelligence matters at work.
Mindfulness or self-awareness is a profound comprehension of what really matters to us, what angers us, satisfies us, bores, and interests us. It likewise implies that we can assess our flaws with incredible genuineness and lucidity. So when individuals with high emotional capabilities commit an error and get criticized for it, it doesn't put them into an emotional spiral. It's just a reality to be noted, investigated, and adjusted. They handle criticism without denial, blame, excuses or anxiety.
A significant degree of mindfulness lets emotionally intelligent people listen to a situation without reacting to judgment. They don't automatically dismiss ideas just because they are different from their own. You will not find them chattering the entire day or tolerating negative characters, yet they have a talent for aiding individuals to set things right. These are open-minded or liberal beings.
Extraordinary listening requires a developed listening structure that enables one to be open-minded. Individuals with emotional intelligence can distinguish the feelings that shut down their capacity to listen. They've worked at fostering the capacity to separate from these hindrances so they can stay open and ready to hear what is truly being said.
Emotional intelligence requires perceiving feelings in others, however, this other mindfulness doesn't mean shying away from speaking the truth or utilizing tactics to attempt to relax the blow of extreme criticism. Individuals with passionate insight realize how significant it is that intense messages get heard. You will not hear outright genuineness that could close down the discussion, however, you will hear a reasonable message that may sound like this: I have a tough message to convey. So simply put, they don't gloss over reality.
Individuals with high emotional intelligence don't contribute important time attempting to prove they are correct when they understand they're off-base. Rather than searching for pardons, they offer a basic, genuine statement of regret that allows them rapidly to refocus. It sounds something like this: "I'm sorry I screwed up and picked some awful words that seemed like I was assaulting you. This isn't what I intended." They simply admit their mistakes and apologize when they're wrong.
These are the very attributes that lead to accomplishments at the workplace. The need for emotional intelligence in us daily is as essential as having three meals a day. It nurtures us with the ability to withstand the pressure that handling tough circumstances would throw at us.
