5 What is Emotional Intelligence? Emotional Intelligence is the ability to understand, accept, and recognize our own emotions and feelings, including their impact on ourselves and other people and to use this knowledge to improve our own behaviours as well as to manage and improve our relationships with others. Ann Cartwright and Amanda Solloway, 2007
6 Benefits of EI Increased self-confidence Improved relationships in the workplace Greater communication Less conflict and greater conflict resolution Less stress Better management of change Greater trust and respect Improved teamwork and collaboration
7 “After each shift I go home feeling defeated because I can’t give the care I want to my patients. I don’t work in a supportive environment where people trust and respect one another, and that impacts my ability to ask for help and to trust that others will be there when I need them to be.”
8 “The patient is the number one priority at all times, so there is no ego, there is no jockeying for position, and no pecking order. We are simply just there for the patient, their family, and for one another. It’s hard to describe. I never feel alone because there is such a strong sense of teamwork. I know that when I ask for help I’ll get it, I know I can always ask questions, and I know that my opinion is valued.”

13 Set your Intentions Every Day Set aside 5 to 10 minutes every morning to set your daily intentions. Find a quiet spot where you will not be interrupted. Sit comfortably and close your eyes. Take 10 deep breaths and focus on releasing any tension each time you exhale. Then ask yourself 3 questions…….
14 Set your Intentions What will you achieve today? Who will you be today? What actions will you take today? Visualize your answers to each question and see, feel, and hear yourself achieving what you want to achieve, being you you want to be and taking the actions you want to take.
15 Developing Team Self-Management Establish Monday Morning Huddles: What will WE achieve this week? Who will WE be this week? What actions will WE take this week?
16 The Parent/Adult/Child Model The Parent Hands on Hips mode The Adult Rational & Emotion- Free mode The Child Poor Me Mode
17 When in the Adult Mode we: Ask for information and don’t make assumptions. Respond rather than react. Are assertive. Seek a win-win. Are straightforward, open and honest. Talk to others as equals. Create dialogue.
18 Individual Exercise 1. Consider an ineffective interaction in which you did not remain firmly in the Adult. 2. In which mode were you functioning? 3. What caused you to slip into that mode, what are your triggers? 4. What can you do going forward to better manage your response?
19 Respond in the Adult Ask open-ended questions. Be aware of tone of voice, ensure open, non- judgemental tone. Be aware of your own biases when commenting and asking questions. Recognize and manage your triggers. Do not judge. Be respectful.
