Over the last 25 years studies have shown that success is driven by IQ plus EQ and that IQ cannot provide success on its own. When Emotional Intelligence was first recognised in 1990, it provided the missing answer to a peculiar finding: people with average IQ’s outperformed those with the higher IQ’s 70% of the time. A high Emotional Quotient (EQ) boosts career success, entrepreneurial potential leadership qualities, health, relationship satisfaction, humour and happiness. It is also the best antidote to stress and has been found to reduce levels of the stress hormone, cortisol.

Many people in their day to day work encounter frustrated, angry and emotional clients, sometimes escalating to conflict making interaction difficult. This may leave individuals feeling frustrated, stressed and dis empowered. In order to deal with these difficult clients, we require the skills to respond non-defensively, professionally and empathetically to the underlying messages being conveyed by the client on a case by case basis. Thus potentially unmanageable situations can be diffused and a relationship formed with the client.
For effective relationships we need awareness of what effective communication entails and how we communicate. It is important to know our own communication styles and how we respond to others. Effective communication is achieved when we know and trust each other, communicate openly and unambiguously, accept and support each other and can manage conflicts and relationship problems constructively. Effective communication leads to positive results where as ineffective communication leads to conflict, breakdowns, and negative feelings and can be destructive.

LifeLine Johannesburg is affiliated with Lifeline Southern Africa and LifeLine International. What initially started as a counselling service over 50 years ago expanded to community work in many areas and one of our sustainability arms was our Corporate Division which actually created out of the demand from people who had attended our community training to share these vital skills in the workplace.
