How do you build emotional intelligence?

Emotional intelligence isn’t a new idea, but it can be difficult to know how ‘to do’ it well. So for the final Friday G&T of the season, here are 12 pointers to think about: from embracing silence and asking for help, to being yourself.

These 12 ideas come from Justine Bariso’s article for Inc.. Take a look to read more about each one and how to start practicing greater emotional intelligence for yourself and those around you.

After just over three years of seeking out the best and brightest ideas to share with you in our Friday Gift and Tonics, we’ve decided this September to stop releasing a new one each week. However, we won’t be waving goodbye to the G&T just yet. Instead, we’ll be relaunching a new and refreshed collection of resources that will be free and available to everyone to use, share and enjoy, and will become the new home to the best and most thought-provoking G&Ts. We look forward to launching this later in the autumn, and until then you can keep your G&T topped up with the Friday G&T Gallery; a smorgasbord or ideas, inspiration and a little fun too.
