What does it really take to be emotionally intelligent? [WEBSHOW VIDEO]

Super excited to release this edition of The Conscious Change Agent web show with my guest Andrea Isaacs, as it’s the first time we have done a 3-camera shoot.  Thanks to the awesome Yuchen Wu for making this happen.

Andrea is lovely, fun and exuberant.  You’ll like her.  But, interestingly, as she shares in this interview, that wasn’t always the case.  She had to learn how to show up in her power;  she had to overcome social shyness; and she figured out a process to help you get present when strong emotions arise in you and work out what’s really going on.  Useful for all of us.

In this interview, we cover some of the finer points of emotional intelligence.  Andrea has a really neat way of distilling this into the balance of giving and receiving (emotion). On balance, are you someone who generally shares more or who takes more when in conversation?  We bounce ideas about extroverts and introverts, and what the real path of integration looks like.  And we have some type-specific advice (no Enneagram foreknowledge needed).  Andrea then gives us her killer SNOW acronym.  You’ll have to watch to get the full scoop on that!

For those of you in Colorado, Andrea is running a series of Enneagram panels on each of the different Ennea-types.  For more information, click here.

Hope you enjoy the new show format [forgive a little light bouncing off glasses issue] and some no-nonsense conversation on being with emotion authentically, balancing our native personality preferences and showing up with more presence.
