The average person can articulate between 12 to 20 emotions that they feel in general.
"Emotions are internal energy in motion"!
We actually experience 34,000 emotions.
Emotional intelligence is becoming more self aware of our emotions so we can self manage how we engage with those emotions which equips us to place ourselves in a motivated or positive state emotionally.
This leads to the capacity to operate in empathy towards other which helps us to become socially aware of the emotional environment that is going on in the relationships and team members that we live and work with!
