[Video] The connection between Emotional Intelligence and NLP

The idea of Emotional Intelligence (EQ) was first put forward by Daniel Goleman in the early 90s. This was the first time that anybody had paid attention to something other than intelligence as being an indicator of how successful somebody might be in life and in work.

Given that Emotional Intelligence and NLP are both about interacting with other people and self awareness, I’m often asked what the connection is and whether there’s an overlap. I believe there is and that they are two different sides of the same thing…

  1. Hello Dianne. There is one caveat that I am aware of. That is people who have what is referred to as Asperger’s syndrome. They can be highly intelligent, and also have real challenges with relating emotionally, as you are aware. This might be mentioned. There is apparently training to help with recognising emotional states of others, but it is not an easy task.
