Social and emotional intelligence is the ability to be aware of our own emotions and those of others, in the moment, and to use that information to manage ourselves and manage our relationships. It is not about just being nice. There’s much more to it, including personal power, that inner knowledge that we can handle what life unfolds. It’s about integrity – knowing – and choosing – what’s right. It’s about building trust AND building bonds. It is about being more effective in our personal and professional relationships. It is about making a difference.
