Emotional Leadership is about how emotional intelligence may be applied to everyday living to find the identity you want to empower personal and relationship change.
Abundance comes from awareness. If you want an abundant and balanced life, it is there for the taking … but you need to become aware of your true self and focus on that … and give up your self-image where your ego is in control . It’s up to you to make it happen …
Emotional Leadership shows you how to get there, building trust in your relationships one step at a time. Our premise is : Situational and functional leadership behaviors, which we help successful leaders change through coaching, are driven by effective emotional leadership practice.
By Dr. Mike & Karen Gosling
Leadership is influencing others to achieve your vision. Leaders influence people through developing a feeling of long-term trust in their business, professional, and social relationships. Emotional leadership is learning and applying emotionally intelligent behaviors that gain long-term trust.
Emotional Leadership is a book to help successful leaders and others gain insight into their emotional intelligence and emotional style to help them influence others. Leaders learn how their emotional intelligence and style drive their mood and actions and impact on others, and how to manage their emotions and the emotions of others. Leaders then have the responsibility to commit to achieving positive long-term change in their behaviour; for themselves, their teams, and their relationships.
What makes a person want to change their behavior; their identity? Are you emotionally healthy? How does emotional constipation affect your health? Are you a sensitive or reactive person? Do you understand your inner-view of self? Do you recognise the inner voice that judges you? Do you always use effective communication techniques in your relationships? Can you make right choices for your life? Do you give and receive love according to your own needs and those of your partner? Why do some people excel at self and social management and others do not?
Emotional Leadership – Using emotionally intelligent behaviour to enjoy a life of EASE helps successful leaders and other individuals, achieve positive long-term change in behaviour; for themselves, their teams, and their relationships.
In contributing to the increased well-being of so many people, we realized that people with emotional intelligence – those who can perceive, use, understand, and manage emotion in themselves and in others – lead happier and more fulfilling lives. As a result we collaborated to write this book, a valuable resource for those interested in investing in their own emotional wisdom. Emotional Leadership was initially conceived to accompany The EASEQuadrant Workshop – a two-day event that integrates emotional intelligence concepts and cognitive-behavioral insights with our hands-on experience. However, this book has become a resource in its own right due to its simplistic language, easy-to-use worksheets and exercises, and references to real-life case studies.
Experienced emotionally intelligent practitioners will find this book presents the chance to empower personal and relationship change. Novices in emotional awareness will appreciate the direction Emotional Leadership offers. Find a way to get started on your EAR-Identity and discover the key to the most vital issue in your life – emotional wisdom; behaving with emotional intelligence.
Are you troubled by your feelings and want to feel safe again? Do you want help with emotional distress and personal problems? Are you and your partner just housemates? What if you could understand your emotions better – Would that help you achieve wellness?
Differing emotional styles and communication differences between men and women can result in even the most successful people experiencing unresolved hurts, frustration, resentment, confusion, despair, ineffective communication and not giving and receiving love according to one’s needs—a path that too often ends in a person not feeling safe, lowered self esteem, depression, broken relationships, betrayal of trust, separation and divorce.
Partners and work colleagues often blame each other for their problems—and the discomfort they feel. “You make me feel like this,” or “You really stress me out,” or “You have to apologize,” are common refrains. The blaming that occurs is often a component of stress found in a long-term relationship—because you feel unable to make the other person behave differently. Do you want to learn ways that help you deal with that stress? You start by learning that no one makes you feel anything.
In this groundbreaking book, respected emotion experts Dr. Mike and Karen Gosling teach you how to reduce stress (negative emotion) and achieve wellness. Armed with exciting new insights into stress—learn about the emotional brain—men and women can heal themselves and their relationships.
EmotionMatters gives you proven tips for enhancing your emotional well being, enriching your relationships and living a more meaningful lives.
