23. Excuse Me Your Emotional IQ Is Showing (feat. Charlie Taylor)



Emotional Intelligence

The ability to perceive, interpret, demonstrate, control, evaluate, and use emotions to communicate with and relate to others effectively and constructively.


In this episode, I am joined by podcaster and founder of the online community Charlie's Toolbox, Charlie Taylor. For this episode, I asked what she has been miseducated on and what she is currently learning about herself. And we discussed emotional intelligence.


Charlie opened up about her own journey of improving her emotional intelligence, recognising the signs and need for growth but most importantly finding the right balance for herself.


Charlie utilises her platform to give insightful tips and advice but she is also real about herself and her own circumstances. I feel she was equally that while we had this conversation, which made it even more enjoyable. Not only was I talking to one of my favourite podcasts but also diving into a topic as heavy as emotional intelligence.


It's interesting to be writing this down because since researching, recording and then editing the episode, I have been racking my brain to find out what made this very pleasant conversation so hard. I genuinely think that it's we as a society - even those of us with the best of intentions - have not fully actualised the many layers and components included in emotional intelligence. Signs of emotional intelligence include equal parts empathy for the self as it is for others.


It's not a quick fix.


That is definitely something Charlie touches up within the episode, this journey is not a quick fix. There is a lot of trail and error but you have to make room for compassion, make room for shortcomings and mistakes.


What is your takeaway from this episode?
