Because human potential depends on the development of emotional literacy
We’ve often been told that we are “rational beings” but humans are much more than that. Emotions are central to everything we do, and yet, we mostly leave their development to chance.
As traditional literacy has become an expectation of an educated person, humans have gained an incredible ability to share information and stories, speed learning and develop thinking. A similar elevation of human capacity is now occurring as we recognize and train ourselves in the area of emotions by developing our emotional literacy.
In personal relationships, leadership, teamwork, coaching, and education emotions are essential. They are fundamentally the energy that connects us to each other and fuels all of our actions.
