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.

It’s been a pleasure sharing our weekly G&T’s with you, and we look forward to being back in September. Until then, keep your G&T topped up with the Friday G&T Gallery; a smorgasbord or ideas, inspiration and a little fun too.
