Your Brain Under Stress


In our previous months newsletters we have talked about emotional intelligence and how important it is for leaders to understand and apply the power of EQ. While essential for survival, the ability to react quickly on emotion alone doesn’t necessarily serve us well when it comes to making decisions in our personal and professional lives.

Successful leaders have the ability to effectively manage emotions and emotional triggers. 90% of the difference between average and superior performance is EQ. Do not overlook the importance of EQ. If we are not aware of our emotions and how they impact others, the other emotional intelligence skills become more difficult to demonstrate. If we are unaware of our emotions, it’s virtually impossible to regulate them.

  • Love – A profoundly tender, passionate affection.
  • Joy – Great delight, keen pleasure or happiness.
  • Sadness – Sorrowful or mournful unhappiness.
  • Hate – Intense dislike, extreme aversion or hostility.
  • Anger – A strong feeling of displeasure, wrath or belligerence.
  • Fear – Concern, anxiety or distress aroused by real or imagined danger, pain, etc.
  • Envy – Discontent or covetousness with regards to another’s advantages, success, possessions, etc.
