Being aware of another person’s emotional state and having empathy towards how they are feeling is part of being emotionally intelligent.
This is a skill that can be learnt if a person wishes to learn.
Also if someone is in a challenging emotional state, in order to help someone first you must be self aware of your emotions.
The ability to perceive and control emotions is absolutely necessary in day to day life.
This will also provide a tool kit that will lead to success in both personal and business life as it can aid you in building stronger relationships to achieve your goals.
Often it can be difficult in day to day life to understand or take the time out in relation to understanding another persons situation and how they are feeling.
In the words of Aristotle
“Anyone can be angry that is easy, but to be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time for the right purpose and in the right way isn’t easy”
Anyone who is in tune with their emotions are capable of expressing emotions in an appropriate way, whilst having the capability of having a listening ear and showing empathy to another persons situation.
There are five elements of emotional intelligence.
This is about understanding your emotions, what you are feeling and why and to be able to understand how they effect others around you. It’s a basis of good intuition and decision making helping you instinctively to make the right choices. Self awareness also helps you understand your strengths and weaknesses.
Once you are aware of your emotions, the next step is learning how to manage them, especially the negative emotions. Learning to meditate and staying calm in any situation. Also to master these emotions especially when feeling stressed or you feel like having an emotional outburst, learning to stay calm, staying true to yourself and taking responsibility for you actions are all part of self regulation.
This is about your drive to improve and stay focused and setting standards to achieve your goals. Motivation should be taking initiative and being open to opportunities that come your way.
Empathy is the ability to understand another person’s situation and seeing it from their point of view. By having an awareness of others feelings its important that you acknowledge their feelings even if you do not agree. Effectively it is showing respect to another persons point of view and having an understanding of their situation.
People who deal with other people well are often described as a ‘people person’. A person that does this is often see as trustworthy team players and confident communicators. Also they are a good listener to other people as they are at speaking themselves. When a person is like this they make great leaders, where they inspire and motivating people by giving praise and resolving conflict if necessary.
