Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want To Miss:
- We need to find better ways to describe how we feel. Most of us don’t know how to explain how we feel beyond “OK” or “good.”
- Use a feelings wheel to develop emotional accuracy. This tool visualizes the relationship between emotions and helps us push past surface emotions or words that do not accurately describe how we feel.
- The road to emotional intelligence takes less than 3 minutes per day. Using the feelings wheel five times a day creates awareness, familiarity and confidence to say how you feel and make healthy decisions based on those feelings.
Focus on incremental change in your emotional vocabulary and the emotional vocabulary of your family and team. Use the feelings wheel to get a baseline - how well do you know how you feel? And then keep using the feelings wheel in meetings, interpersonal interaction and for yourself and watch what happens when you take small steps towards a better future.
