How is EQ Applied different from other emotional intelligence companies?
Much of what you’ll find about emotional intelligence on the internet is either:
- Too general and without substance
- Too abstract, academic, or impractical
- A purely analytical, almost robotic approach to understanding emotions
- Completely boring
EQ Applied does it different.
I strive to make emotional intelligence interesting using simple, easy-to-understand methods that only take a few minutes of investment a day.
My toolbox includes:
- Stories that incorporate principles of psychology and other scientific research, taken from our own work and personal lives
- Real-life examples ripped from today’s headlines
- Entertaining explainer videos on our YouTube channel, each with a takeaway
- A podcast that teaches the rules and principles of “EQ” in short episodes of ten minutes or less
- Books and Ebooks equipped with practical “Try This” sections
- Online courses that focus on application and habit change
I believe true emotional intelligence doesn’t involve separating rational thought and emotions. Rather, it requires bringing these two facets together, in balance and harmony.
Finally, I don’t just want to tell people about emotional intelligence. I want to show them.
And I want to do it in a way that’s fun, interesting, and transformative.
Are you a psychologist?
No, I’m not a psychologist.
I’ve collaborated with psychologists and neuroscientists to better understand the processes behind our thoughts, emotions, feelings, and behavior, so I can share these lessons with others.
I’ve also studied common methods used by psychologists, like Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). However, unlike psychologists and therapists who specialize in clinical study or helping persons with severe behavioral disorders, I share these methods with a more general audience: readers and students who can use these principles to improve their leadership skills, strengthen their relationships, and build better habits through better understanding and managing of their emotions.
Can you help me?
If you believe that your emotions sometimes get in the way of you achieving your goals, that you often say or do things that you later regret, or that you’d like to understand basic principles of psychology or neuroscience so that you can better manage emotional behavior, we might be a good fit. I’ve helped tens of thousands to use the principles of emotional intelligence to find more success at work and in their personal lives. (Just check out our reviews.)
Additionally, EQ Applied has helped organizations across various fields and industries to develop their people, including:
- Information Technology
- Psychology and mental health
- Stay-at-home parents
However, if you’re suffering from clinical depression or a severe mental or emotional disorder, you may require the assistance of a professional psychiatrist, or licensed counselor or therapist. EQ Applied does not offer these services.
How can I test and see if EQ Applied is a good fit for my needs?
