    34 – Working on You

    34 – Working on You

    Now that we are into the second half of the year, how is it going for YOU? How is it going as you work on you?



    New Year's Resolutions are now more than six months old.  Many of yours may been broken in just a few short weeks.  Others, a couple of months. The desire, the fire, is just gone.



    But the ones that really mean something are probably still being worked on today. If you're in that place, your emotional intelligence can maybe either reignite you or may potentially just keep you going.



    Hurdles you may be running up against are when we self-judge ourselves, or even judge others. Judgment decision are not only easy, but they are quick. And that's dangerous because when that happens, you're operating on very, very limited information.



    And this is where we should let our curiosity take over.  Ask questions, be informed, and understand why you shouldn't come to judge yourself, or others, too quickly. That opens up more choices, more options. It gives you the ability to leverage one of the competencies of empathy. As Eric likes to put it,

    "It's intellectually lazy to be judgmental."

    Curiosity says you care enough and you want to do the work of understanding what's going on. And that work might take you someplace uncomfortable. You might have to do some self-examination.



    The power of curiosity goes hand-in-hand with self-empathy. It gives you that ability to say "I'm not a failure."



    Self-examination, self exploration, can help you to start thinking of consequences and thinking through consequential thinking. So that you continue down the same path, the consequences are going to be the same. So what do you have to do to make those consequences come out the way you want?



    n each episode, Jeff and Eric will talk about what emotional intelligence, or understanding your emotions, can do for you in your daily and work life. For more information, contact Jeff at jeff@spiritofeq.com, or go to their website, Spirit of EQ.

    33 – The Future of Work with Special Guest Holly Custard, PhD

    33 – The Future of Work with Special Guest Holly Custard, PhD

    Holly Custard is deputy director of institute partnerships and outreach at the Strada Institute for the Future of Work, where she engages with stakeholders to raise awareness and inspire action through the Institute’s research and insights. Her work focuses on fostering the development of infrastructure that supports robust, connected and purposeful learning and career outcomes.



    In this episode, we talk with Holly about the future of what work might look like for us post pandemic. She covers a variety of areas that, as we exit the pandemic, should be incorporated into our workplace.



    A system should be designed that helps us transition into new jobs or careers.  She outlines 5 areas that should be focused on.



    The big question is, will corporate embrace this change?  Education vs skills is at the core of this conversation.  Unpack what are the jobs, and what are the skills needed.  Communicate what is needed from both the educational experience and skills needed, and how this can be a better result for both the employer and employee.



    How does EQ work into this, the hiring process, especially skills?



    Are we now entering a unique opportunity, to shape the future?  What have what we need to implement these concepts, but it will take all of us to recognize them, and work together.



    Remember the term "working learner." How do we put that person at the center of all we do. We have to start to understand what is going on with employees in a structural, systematic way (EMPATHY!).



    And as the employee, without self-awareness of your personal history, it is difficult to move forward with a new career or job path.



    In each episode, Jeff and Eric will talk about what emotional intelligence, or understanding your emotions, can do for you in your daily and work life. For more information, contact Jeff at jeff@spiritofeq.com, or go to their website, Spirit of EQ.

    31 – D-1 College Athlete, Life Lessons and EQ with Special Guest Dan DeLucia

    31 – D-1 College Athlete, Life Lessons and EQ with Special Guest Dan DeLucia

    We had the opportunity to speak with Dan DeLucia, Pitching Coach for The Ohio State University Buckeyes Baseball team.



    How do 18 or 19-year old young men, just out of high school, handle the pressures of playing sports and college life.  How does EQ come into play when coaches help them adjust?  Coach DeLucia gives us his insight on how difficult this time can be, and how he and fellow coaches go beyond the game, and make it about the person first, then the ball player.



    Dan is currently in his seventh year as an assistant for the Buckeyes, and has been a part of the Buckeye coaching staff that guided the team to three NCAA Regional appearances in the last four years as well as two Big Ten Tournament titles. He helped guide the youngest pitching staff in the nation to a postseason title run as the OSU arms shattered the school record for strikeouts in a season (583). He has helped develop nine Ohio State pitchers into Major League Baseball.Dan concluded his Buckeye playing career in 2008 after earning four letters, was a first team All-Big Ten selection in 2006 and was selected by the Detroit Tigers in the Major League Baseball draft. Outside of baseball, Dan loves spending time with his wife, Carly, and four kids, James, Gracie, Luke & Hannah.
