The new buzzword in Corporate America is “EI”—Emotional Intelligence. It relates directly to my mission in helping companies assist their employees who may have a mental illness or face substance abuse issues.

Emotional Intelligence is the ability to identify and manage your own emotions and the emotions of others. What is the business payoff? According to Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ “...emotional intelligence accounts for 80 percent of career success.” 

“EI” embraces three skills:

1. Emotional awareness, including the ability to identify your own emotions and those of others;

2. The ability to harness emotions and apply them to tasks like thinking and problems solving;

3. The ability to manage emotions, including the ability to regulate your own emotions, and the ability to cheer up or calm down another person.

Emotional intelligence is positively and significantly related to mental health. There is growing evidence that emotional abilities are a relevant predictor of health and well-being.

An MIT study concluded “Both ordinary unhappiness and clinical disorders may follow from poor understanding and management of one’s own emotions. In everyday life, misunderstanding others’ feelings, lashing out impulsively in challenging situations, and failing to engage positively with others may all lead to stress and avoidable unhappiness.”

Is your workplace mental  health-safe to boost the “EI” of your employees?  “Promoting good mental health  in the workplace could be one of the most important steps an employer could take to improve an organization” according to Forbes magazine.

Whether you like him or not, Donald Trump summarized it best: “It’s important to focus on the solution, not the problem.”

“It's amazing how once the mind is free of emotional pollution, logic and clarity emerge.”

I believe that companies should really help their employees when it comes to their mental health. Working is really stressful and very tiring, there are lots of work to finish so you could meet the deadline to your boss, you will tend to work overtime or bring your work at home just to finish it you won't able to get sleep or even forget to eat. Sometimes your social life is also at risk, you can't even have a time for yourself and to bond with your friends because of work. I hope that companies will take a look on this issue because it is not going to be just beneficial to the employees but to the company as well. Positive employees will be able to become more productive and can finish all the work that is to be done in the best manner.

Being an emotional- intelligent person might be one of the best traits a person can have. What makes it more powerful is the ability to control your own emotion. By being in control of your emotion, you become wiser with you decision, and you tend to be more cautious on your action. You prevent yourself from doing things that can make you emotional. By the way thank you for posting this!
