  10. 10. Self Awareness - Inward What others say Angus is very much in his ‘own little world.’ He can be overwhelming - he doesn’t notice when the other person is feeling annoyed or frustrated by him. He is very good at talking about the work he does. But sometimes that passion gets in the way. When he is excited, he talks over people, and it is hard to get a word in edgewise. Maybe he doesn’t mean to; he just is excited about what he does. Strategies to Boost EQ Check yourself. Consider home and work - nothing is off limits. Feelings are not facts Seek feedback from others Physical appearance – RBF? Music or art giving you the feels? Journal! @Julee_NorthStar
  11. 11. @Julee_NorthStar Self Awareness – Emotions are Contagious Be more aware of how you are perceived • Pause here and write down 3 things you value about someone you admire • Write down 3 things you have been told about yourself in past reviews or feedback sessions • Consider how these might not be in alignment @Julee_NorthStar
  12. 12. Self Management - Inward What others say Joy needs to not be so honest. We don’t need to know about all of the stress that her job entails. If certain things upset her, she needs to learn to keep them to herself. She seems to just radiate stress; it impacts us as a team negatively and creates more stress and negativity rather than diffusing it. Perhaps she is taking on too much. Strategies to boost EQ Breathe Power of pause Mental recharge Manage self talk Journal @Julee_NorthStar
  13. 13. @Julee_NorthStar Self Management – Positivity Words Matter – and so does body language. • Stop for a minute here, and write down three negative phrases you know you have said about clients, stakeholders, or the organization you work for. Or yourself. • Take your time, and find three authentic things to replace those phrases with. @Julee_NorthStar If you find yourself slipping into negative behavior, remember that tomorrow is a new day. This is a difficult behavior to break and will take time, attention, self-reflection, and accountability.
  14. 14. Social Awareness - Outward What Others Say Leo needs to allow others to feel good about their ideas, even when he thinks he has a better plan. Different doesn’t mean bad. Also - he is not one to socialize. He is so focused on work he comes across as not interested in what’s going on with any of us. When he has new ideas (or ideas from his former job), he has a hard time explaining them so we will accept them. He seems unwilling to accept other people’s viewpoints or include their input in his decisions. And another thing – he never smiles! Strategies to Boost EQ Observe other people’s interactions Don’t take notes in meetings - observe others Don’t interrupt - no matter what Stop thinking with your fingers Multiple cultures at play take a longer to observe Look for similarities and differences @Julee_NorthStar
  15. 15. @Julee_NorthStar Social Awareness – Intention Intentionally set the emotional climate in your team • Pause now and write down a question (or 3) you can ask yourself throughout the day • What are two things I can do to increase the interest in the team to perform as optimally as possible on a consistent basis? • What are two things the team wants to know about the user to understand their pain points and ultimately create innovative solutions? • How can I learn from my team during this feature? • How could we all enjoy this event more? @Julee_NorthStar This is better accomplished with ‘How’ and ‘What’ questions rather than ‘Why’ questions.
  16. 16. @Julee_NorthStar Social Awareness – Validation At the end of the day, ask yourself a ‘What’ question • What 3 things have gone well today and why is that? @Julee_NorthStar One tip is to enter these questions as reminders in your phone to prompt you throughout the day of your commitment to boosting your emotional intelligence.
  17. 17. Relationship Management - Outward What others say Chloe finds faults in every situation. It is tiring and de-motivating. She doesn’t recognize people’s achievements. She’s tough, difficult to work for, and unapproachable. She may achieve results, but at the expense of others. People no longer value her input, and at times view it as her need to be seen as superior. Strategies to Boost EQ Explain decisions Make feedback constructive Be inquisitive in your tone Work with an accountability partner @Julee_NorthStar
  18. 18. @Julee_NorthStar Relationship Management – Feedback Give specific feedback that is worthwhile and creates meaning • Pause here and think back to your last three reviews, retrospectives, or other opportunities for feedback. • Write down the answers to: • What was the feedback that I gave my team? • How could I have improved my feedback to make it more meaningful? @Julee_NorthStar
  19. 19. @Julee_NorthStar Align intent with impact Think about a time you had to repair a relationship of any kind, or a situation where the impact of what you said or did was not what you intended. • Briefly outline the the incident, your intentions, your actions, and the impact—the end result or reaction of others. • Write what you didn’t realize in the situation—what you understand now in hindsight, what you learned about yourself, and others. • Finally, answer what you could have done differently to keep your intent and impact aligned. If you’re not sure, ask someone who was involved in the situation.
  20. 20. @Julee_NorthStar In conclusion Getting in touch with your emotions and tendencies takes honesty and courage Be patient and give yourself credit for even the smallest bits of forward momentum Sometimes making small adjustments makes a big difference Emotional intelligence skills, like emotions, are contagious There is no finish line
