Fidelis: Todays Kudos & Encouragement (Mon. 6-15-15)

Good Morning Fidelis,

This week we are wrapping up our study on Emotional Intelligence.  Remember it is the “something” in each of us that is a bit intangible. It affects how we manage behavior, navigate social complexities, and make personal decisions to achieve positive results.

We Embrace Change
Emotionally intelligent people are flexible and are constantly adapting. We know that fear of change is paralyzing and a major threat to our success and happiness. These changes even happen throughout our appointments. At one second we are seeing buy signs, then another we are feeling shut down. We look for change that is lurking just around the corner, and we form a plan of action should these changes occur. This is one place our objection handling comes in handy.

We Know Our Strengths and Weaknesses
Emotionally intelligent people don’t just understand emotions; we know what we’re good at and what we’re terrible at. We control emotions. Every single one of us has had that customer that seems to SAP every ounce of energy and positivity out of us. We also know who pushes our buttons and the environments (both situations and people) that enable us to succeed. The United States Marine Corps has a couple great sayings. One is “Improvise, Adapt & Overcome”, this is what we must do after those appointments. The other is “Semper Fidelis” which means “always loyal/faithful.” This is what we must be to ourselves. Having a high EQ means we know our strengths and we know how to lean into them and use them to our full advantage while keeping our weaknesses from holding us back.

This above all: to thine own self be true, And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man. Farewell, my blessing season this in thee! - Hamlet Act 1, scene 3
