Slow down and notice which emotions are driving your actions.
Using Emotional Intelligence (EI) in the workplace is a constant practice. By integrating EI with the process of making art, it allows employees to gain hands-on experience—putting their skills to work while at the same time, stretching their imagination and creativity. Making art includes experiences that call us to navigate through stressful terrain such as facing a blank page, coming up with ‘good’ ideas, and sharing the completed work. These situations offer the perfect training ground for a continued investigation of EI while becoming aware of one’s initial reaction to stress and creating under pressure.
