Myths of Emotional Intelligence Training

This is how most people respond to being told they are going to do “Emotional Intelligence Training.”

Emotional Intelligence assessments might not be as touchy, feely as you might think they are. If your perception is that we are all going to sit down, talk about our feelings, sing “Kum ba yah” and do trust falls, you might be suprised as most to find out that is not the case.

These perceptions are built off of common myths that include:

– We shouldn’t talk about “feelings” in the workplace.

– Talking about emotions is for “sissy’s” and is an unproductive waste of time.

– Emotional Intelligence is just about empathy and only for women or for men who want to “get in touch with their sensitive side.”

Now let’s dispel those myths
