Week 4 discussion, emotional intelligence and debilitative emotions

Emotional Intelligence and Debilitative Emotions 

Each week, you will be asked to respond to the prompt or prompts in the discussion forum. Your initial post should be 75-150 words in length, and is due on Sunday. By Tuesday, you should respond to two additional posts from your peers. 

  • A friend came to you last week and told you the following: “I’ve had it with my boss. She’s always so overly critical. I lost my temper and quit today. I told her what a horrible manager she was and left then and there. Now I’m afraid to add that job to my resume and to use her as a reference.” 
  • Take this brief assessment on Emotional Intelligence: https://memorado.com/emotional_quotient.  
  • Share your score and explain how this may help or hinder you in a work and personal environment. 
  • In light of what you learned about emotions in Chapter 5 of Looking Out Looking In, what should your friend have done instead?
