A sign reading "choose your own adventure" stands before a path in the woods that splits at a fork

"Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom."
-Viktor E. Frankl

Being mindful and aware at each moment allows you to choose your response to the stimulus, whether it be a real tiger or an argument with a co-worker. Your body doesn’t necessarily know the difference so it launches the fight or flight mode; next thing you know your pulse increases, you’re filled with adrenaline and you aren’t using your frontal lobe to choose your words. Instead your amygdala has been hijacked and you’re just reacting emotionally instead of intentionally.
Does this sound familiar?

By developing the emotional intelligence competencies (or EQ) of workplace individuals and teams, there become many more options for responses, and therefore the future of the organization. Whether a team needs the building blocks for better communication or is ready to better their best, developing a greater understanding of oneself and others is the key to more effective relationships at work and in the greater community. The more you practice self awareness, the more you will be able to choose your own adventure.
