Emotions provide valuable information about how we understand the world around us; and people who know their own emotions and are good at reading others’ emotions are more effective in the workplace.

Self-perception is the first area that contributes to emotional intelligence. This is about how we see or perceive ourselves.

There are three competencies that make up the self-perception area:
• Self-regard
• Self-actualization
• Emotional self-awareness

Let’s begin and discuss Self-Regard. Self-Regard - is the ability to accept yourself just the way you are – ‘warts and all’.

I get this question a lot and the answer is always “it depends.”

The best way to share any content, no matter what media type, is to keep the original source link with the content.

It’s all about promoting someone else’s content and showing yourself or your brand as an expert curator on a topic, rather than claiming that content as your own.

Did you know clutter in a workspace is actually a distraction to your productivity? It weighs you down, it disrupts your thinking and creates an invitation to chaos.

Here are five tips to simplify your workspace

1. Get rid of unnecessary knickknacks and office accessories. They are distractions, create clutter and reduce your focus. Bookshelves, closets, and containers are great for storage.

2. Access folders quickly by using a vertical desktop file sorter instead of stacking papers. Colour coding each folder by topic will provide a great visual for folders you access regularly.

I immediately saw its potential, became passionate about it and now want to share it with everyone who’ll listen. Why? Because EI is the ticket for you to: feel good about yourself, stand up for your beliefs, manage stress, create healthy relationships and have sky-high efficiency.

Are you salivating yet, chomping at the bit? Saying, “Tell me what it is – I have to know!”

Alright then.
