Welcome to the world of Emotional Intelligence!


What is emotional intelligence?

Every moment of every day we are flushed with numerous feelings and emotions, which may be ours or we just perceive them from others. Our brains recognize feelings as information from the environment, based on which they form our emotional response and our rational response.

It is a scientific fact, that we feel first and only then think, which implies that our primary feelings and emotions are encouraging all aspects of our rational thinking, behaviour and well-being.

Emotional Intelligence or EQ is a learnable, measurable and scientificaly based ability of efficient two-way communication between the emotional brain and the rational brain. The more aware we are of what we feel – and use those emotions intelligently – the more our emotional intelligence develops and the further we discover the use of EQ skills for our personal satisfaction and success.

The skills of emotional intelligence

A model of Emotional Intelligence skills combines two main fields: personal and social skills.

  • Personal skills have to do more with the individual and decide upon how well we control.
  • Social skills have to do more with how we behave in a relationship with others and how well we manage interpersonal skills.

The EQ skills model is designed circularly, as a process that can be used in a variety of situations and repetitively. It allows us to strengthen awareness in a given situation (What do I feel?), control the response (How do I want to act?) and be more purposeful in behaviour (Why do I want this?).

Why emotional intelligence is important

People differentiate from one another based on:

  • Intelligence quotient (IQ),
  • Personality type, and
  • Emotional intelligence (EQ).

Together, they determine how people think and act. While IQ and personality type are almost fixed or we are born with them, emotional intelligence is the only adaptable and can be changed - teachable. At the same time, emotional intelligence is also the explanation for why two people with the same IQ can achieve such different levels of success and personal satisfaction in life.

As much as 80% of adult success comes from Emotional intelligence

Daniel Goleman - Harvard University, founder of Emotional intelligence



In practice, emotional intelligence is actually the demonstrated behaviour of an individual that is a matter of our choice - conscious or unconscious. The essence of emotional intelligence goes beyond just perceiving oneself, expressing oneself, developing relationships, making decisions, and managing stress. Emotional intelligence is a generator of actions (changes, results) that lead to the development and change of behaviour. With the development of emotional intelligence, we grow, develop, strengthen skills and improve the quality of emotions, responses and behaviour.

1. Can my level of emotional intelligence change?

The level of emotional intelligence can be changed. In contrast to IQ and personality, EQ is a variable ability that can be improved. It has been scientifically proven that the brain has the property of neuroplasticity, due to which emotional intelligence training can have a significant impact on improving the level of emotional intelligence. Regardless of age. The latter can be very roughly caricatured with e.g. muscle training in fitness - the more we train, the more developed the muscles. If you are trying to improve your level of emotional Intelligence, you will easily start using some new forms of demonstrating behaviour right away. However, you will need more time for some of the more demanding EQ skills. Most people notice radical changes three to six months after they start acquiring new EQ skills.

2. Can the level of emotional intelligence be measured?

Yes. In the last few decades, since emotional intelligence has been part of in-depth scientific research, several tools and tests have been developed to assess the level of emotional intelligence or emotional intelligence quotient.

3. If emotional intelligence is so important, then why are those who obviously don’t have it, so successful?

We must first know that emotional intelligence and success do not always go hand in hand. People can achieve the desired results with reason and not develop good relationships with others. When you work with such people, you easily overlook the fact that their success is based on personal skills. E.g. the motivation to work with people who find it difficult to work with is usually very high. We need to know that their success is based on a fairly high level of self-management and probably a high level of reason. Difficult people with great achievements are in the minority; about 90% of the most successful people have a high level of emotional intelligence.

4. How many emotional intelligence skills should I acquire at one time?

The human mind can effectively focus on only a few forms behaviour at the same time. Work on only one EQ skill at a time, focusing on changing some key forms of demonstrated behaviour to achieve results. If we gradually master individual EQ skills and only then combine them into a common whole, we can achieve much greater progress than if we wanted to master all EQ skills at the same time.

5. Does emotional intelligence allow for the manipulation of people?

Yes. For those who want to manipulate others with their EQ skills, the power of emotional Intelligence is well known. Unfortunately, there is no way we can prevent people from exploiting emotional intelligence for bad purposes.

6. Is emotional intelligence related to age?

EQ skills tend to develop over the years. People in their 50s have, on average, a 25% higher score on Emotional Intelligence levels than people in their 20s. Although the level of emotional Intelligence may rise with age, this is not always necessarily the case. It is important to know that emotional intelligence can be raised to the maximum level at any age in just a few months.

7. How does emotional intelligence affect health and happiness?

Emotional intelligence significantly affects our coping with problems, challenges, and disappointments. If we suppress or ignore negative emotions from situations that have touched us, they soon turn into uncomfortable tension, stress and anxiety. Emotions that we do not take into account burden our mind and our body. EQ skills make it easier to manage stress, as we solve difficult situations before they become unmanageable. Emotional intelligence has been scientifically proven to improve people's moods and thus solve many challenges of the 21st century - burnout, depression, addiction, etc. Emotional intelligence has a strong impact on personal satisfaction and happiness. People who use emotional intelligence find it easier to accept the environment and feel better in their own skin

8. How does the EQ ACTION WORKBOOK differ from other manuals and books on emotional intelligence?

The EQ ACTION WORKBOOK goes beyond just a theoretical description of what emotional intelligence is, but, as the name suggests, is based on the practical application of emotional intelligence - how? Through solving interactive exercises and performing attractive tasks, we learn to use EQ skills. Thus, in practice, we discover what emotional intelligence is or how it serves us in personal satisfaction and success. It is based on extensive long-term scientific findings and includes the latest approaches and discoveries, making it one of the most current professional materials on emotional intelligence on the market.

9. Do you also use the EQ ACTION WORKBOOK on your EQ Trainings and EQ Retreats?

Yes, the EQ ACTION WORKBOOK is part of the more extensive work material we use in EQ Trainings and EQ Retreats. It is also part of the material that participants receive in permanent ownership.
