This holiday season make your business shine a bit brighter.

During any time of the year that business is a bit slower paced, you have plenty of opportunities to make an impression with a “Stop & Drop”.
It’s this in a nutshell: you “Stop” in on a client or a prospect unexpectedly to say hello, “Drop” a card or small gift and leave. It’s easy to do, it gives you the opportunity to say ‘hi’ face to face and builds relationships.

Stress management is the final area that contributes to emotional intelligence. This is about how well we cope with change, the unfamiliar, and our daily challenges. Here, we examine how well we manage stress.

These competencies make up the Stress Management area of the EQ model:

  • Flexibility
  • Stress Tolerance
  • Optimism

In my last blog, Stretch And Get Flexible, I examined the first emotional intelligence competency under this Stress Management composite, Flexibility. Let’s continue with the second competency and discuss Stress Tolerance.
