How to Increase Emotional Intelligence in Yourself and Your Kids

November 28, 2019

 

Emotional intelligence expert LeeAnah James defines emotional intelligence this way: It's the ability to recognize and regulate emotions, and control the way your emotions influence others. As parents and educators, we need to model and teach emotional intelligence to the kids we have stewardship over. Listen to this great episode to learn how.

 

Listen to the podcast here:

LeeAnah James studied business administration and got her MBA in Project Management. 

At her first job, she was the first and only woman to ever work at that location.

The manager told her that she didn't have high emotional intelligence.

LeeAnah took that as a challenge.

She decided to learn more and increase her own emotional intelligence.

The Four Questions to Ask

 

Ask yourself these four questions

1. How am I feeling? ((Realize you are feeling something)

2. When did I start to feel this way?

3. Why did that shift occur?

4. How do I feel? (Name it)

 

Sometimes we feel something without recognizing it right away.

Gets faster and more intuitive the more you do it.

 

 

 

Teaching Children Emotional Intelligence

 

With kids, it's important to give them the vocabulary to express their feelings. 

Teach them to be still- it gives kids permission to think.

We want this thought process to be second nature to them.

This process teaches kids to be intentional.

 

Emotional Intelligence can Increase 

 

Just by knowing the definition of emotional intelligence, your emotional intelligence has increased. 

It can always be increased, every time you learn about it.
