Emotional Intelligence (EQ) mainly means the capacity to identify your emotions and channelizing them in a way that will be useful and not harmful. In the past, a lot of emphasis was laid on Intelligence Quotient of a person but lately, it has been discovered that a person with a high EQ is someone who actually knows how to live life.
There are some techniques by which we can slowly train ourselves and increase our EQ. For this, a personal counselor can guide you in identifying and harnessing the emotions in the right way even for a specific purpose.
The First Step: Identify your emotions.
Many times we feel something but are not aware of it. As a result, we act on it without realizing the consequences. So the first step is to train yourself to become aware of your emotions at all times.
