Based on audience questions about EQ, it became clear that there was a great deal of confusion about what EQ even was, what it could do for a person, or how you “get it.” Here’s one working definition:

No surprise, the brain likes and wants to feel good. That’s appropriate. Learning how to feel good in a way that results in positive outcomes, however, is a learning curve. More tomorrow.
