Did you know that every point rise in EQ adds $1300 to an annual salary? Joining us on YAP this week is Justin Bariso, an author, speaker and consultant that focuses on helping people develop their emotional intelligence. His book “EQ Applied: The Real-World Guide to Emotional Intelligence,” contains real world examples and personal stories of how emotional intelligence can be applied to improve our everyday lives. 

Whether it is persuading someone to see our point of view or giving a political speech, tapping into people’s emotions is an important aspect of motivating people to take action. A key aspect of understanding EQ is being self aware and understanding how our own emotions affect us on a regular basis. With this knowledge, social awareness can help us understand how those same emotions impact others and their own actions. 

As Justin Bariso states during the interview: “It may all be very logical and you may walk away saying, oh yeah, I should vote for that candidate. Or, oh yeah, I should buy that product. But if it doesn’t touch you on an emotional level, you will not do those things. You know? So emotional intelligence and persuasion are definitely connected because persuasion is all about combining that data, the facts with a story with something that touches a person. And once you do that, then you can motivate people to act. ” 

Improving both social and self awareness can help us manage our own emotions and personal relationships in a healthier way.In this episode, Hala Taha and our guest, Justin Bariso, discuss how we can better understand ourselves and share tips on how EQ can be applied in various different situations.
