“Through the vehicle of our emotions, our mind, body, and spirit are sending signals that something has to shift.”Randy Taran, Emotional Advantage: Embracing All Your Feelings to Create a Life You Love
At the heart of Masterhearting, if you’ll forgive the expression, is emotional intelligence. We bring years of investigation, experimentation and development to your growth as a person and a professional. This includes an innovative new tool for emotion management, called the Emotion Switch, which is the subject of an upcoming book.
What is emotional intelligence?
Society has long been focused on intellectual intelligence and measured by one’s so-called Intelligence Quotient (IQ). But what about Emotional Quotient (EQ)?
Emotional intelligence is about recognising the power of emotion, understanding how emotions affect our bodies and our lives, and managing them in a way which enhances our relationships with others.
It is is about harnessing that power to guide us, through understanding our emotions and learning to use them to our advantage, instead of suppressing them (as futile as trying to plug a volcano).
Whether we like it or not, emotion drives us at a much more fundamental level than intellect. Developing a high EQ frees us from the automatic reactions caused by our basic instincts, directed by our cerebellum and limbic brains, responsible for movement and emotion respectively, which are much faster than our conscious minds can handle.
The Masterhearting Club is here to help you develop your emotional intelligence through articles, forums and coaching, which is specifically aimed at professionals who would like to improve their inter-personal and communication skills through a greater understanding of their, and others emotions.
