RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE AND DC PSYCHOLOGY by Ramon Llamba
Emotional intelligence (EQ) is the ability to identify, use, understand, and manage emotions in positive ways to relieve stress, communicate effectively, empathize with others, overcome challenges, and defuse conflict. Emotional intelligence impacts many different aspects of your daily life, such as the way you behave and the way you interact with others.
if you have high emotional intelligence you are able to recognize your own emotional state and the emotional states of others, and engage with people in a way that draws them to you. You can use this understanding of emotions to relate better to other people, form healthier relationships, achieve greater success at work, and lead a more fulfilling life. The success of any company is not about the product, or the strategies, but its more about the people in there that make things work inside the company. its more about the ability to accept and understand each other in totality so that the the focus of each one is on the goal of the company and not on trying to change people and want them another way. As human beings, each one of us is unique and different and operate out of different emotions at different situations and circumstances. Human emotions , negative or positive play a major role inside of the design of a human being. Learning the ability to identify your emotions that cause damage inside the work place and replacing them with more gentle and assertive emotions is what makes one Emotionally intelligent. Emotional intelligence at the work place is more about having the ability to give up controlling and changing people, but its about taking up personal responsibility to understand ones own damaging emotions and replace them with more assertive emotions, so that one can create an environment wherin everyone is only focused on the goal or the objective.

§ HOW TO RAISE EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE.
The human brain is one of the most important organ that controls and perceives emotional . All information to the brain comes through our senses, and when this information is overwhelmingly stressful or emotional, instinct will take over and our ability to act will be limited to the flight, fight, or freeze response. Therefore, to have access to the wide range of choices and the ability to make good decisions, we need to be able to bring our emotions into balance at will. Memory is also strongly linked to emotion. By learning to stay connected to the emotional part of your brain as well as the rational, you’ll not only expand your range of choices when it comes to responding to a new event, but you’ll also factor emotional memory into your decision-making process. This will help prevent you from continually repeating earlier mistakes. To improve your emotional intelligence—and your decision-making abilities—you need to understand and manage your emotions. This is accomplished by developing key skills for controlling and managing overwhelming stress and becoming an effective communicator.

§ Look at your work environment. Do you seek attention for your accomplishments? Humility can be a wonderful quality, and it doesn’t mean that you’re shy or lack self-confidence. When you practice humility, you say that you know what you did, and you can be quietly confident about it. Give others a chance to shine – put the focus on them, and don’t worry too much about getting praise for yourself.

§ emotions under control when things go wrong.
§ Take responsibility for your actions. If you hurt someone’s feelings, apologize directly – don’t ignore what you did or avoid the person. People are usually more willing to forgive and forget if you make an honest attempt to make things right.
§ Examine how your actions will affect others – before you take those actions. If your decision will impact others, put yourself in their place. How will they feel if you do this? Would you want that experience? If you must take the action, how can you help others deal with the effects?
