The word is out. While once people celebrated high intelligence quotients (IQs to the rest of us), now it’s a matter of fact that emotional intelligence (EQ) ranks way up there, just as high as IQs (if not higher). Because no matter the amount of grey matter (brains) we have, it’s all useless if we don’t know how to deal with people. Because we all live, work and play in a world of people. Fundamental to living this life well is being able to get on well with people – people from all the different parts of our lives, people from all walks of life, just people in general. And how do we do this?
Well, the bottom line? It’s communication. It’s the way we send and receive information, it’s the way we process messages, it’s the way we construct strategies with which to send and receive information. And we can do this in so many ways, not just in our personal interactions with people, but also in the many various forms of media we have today. In fact, technology has changed the way we communicate, and all for the better! But we should be able to tell the difference between positive and negative communication, as well as know the appropriate terms and acceptable media to use. For example, different levels of relationships require different types of media, and as such, we don’t send a casual WhatsApp text for a serious matter to our bosses, and we don’t need to send emails to our family to send our love. Also, we need to know the different types of appropriate body language to use in our communications because body language contributes to the success or failure of our communication processes. Yes, it actually sounds very complicated.
