Our sense of meaning and value depends on human connection. Emotional Intelligence is the art and science of developing that connection with our humanity and the humanity of others. Emotions are critical for the quality and depth of our connection. Emotional Intelligence allows us more intimacy and risk in our relationships. It teaches us the strength in compassion, in learning to soften while being powerfully effective and influential in our close relationships. We will focus on the emotions at the heart of setting priorities that create an intrinsic sense of purpose for our lives.
