My latest course on Pluralsight is live, and I honestly think this is my most important course that I may do, ever.
If you need a 30 day pass, let me know. I’ll see if I have any left.
I think if everyone in the world works on the five principles of emotional intelligence (EQ) with the proper intent (not to manipulate others). Of course, working on emotional intelligence means working on social skills (that’s the fifth of the five main pillars of EQ)… so better listening, better communication, etc. But the other pillars add perspective and context to EQ.
This course has explanations of EQ, as well as specific exercises you can work on right now to start improving your EQ. However, I had to keep this course close to an hour. If I had eight hours I would have used them up.
My ask is that you view this course as a beginning. It’s not a PhD level course. It’s not a masters level course. It is meaty, but there is much more to talk about. Let it be the catalyst to ask yourself the right questions (What do I do with this information? Where do I go from here? Do I agree with it all? Are there exceptions for me?).
I try to answer the questions in the discussion section. I am also happy to answer questions via email or on Twitter or whatever. I want this to be the beginning of a discussion. Want more? Then let’s talk it through!
I hope you enjoy this course, and use it as a launching pad on a serious personal journey. I know I think differently now, after having spent time on the topic, and thinking through the elements of emotional intelligence.
Need a 30 day pass on Pluralsight? I might just be able to hook you up… let me know and I’ll see if I can get you a code to redeem.
