We all have experience with people, which proves that those with the highest IQ are not always the most successful. For example, you might encounter a tech wizard who was never promoted because he’s not a team player. Or a full-time professor who has no idea why adult children avoid her. Or an award-winning designer whose character led him to lose clients and financial ruin. All of these are exceptionally bright individuals with recognized talent in their field. Yet each of them failed to achieve their own career, personal, or financial goals.

What are these very smart people missing?
Most likely, there is a lack of emotional intelligence-the ability to perceive, understand and manage emotions in yourself and others. Sounds very powerful, doesn’t it? Can we really control our own emotions, as opposed to having our emotions control the show? Can we really change the emotions of our colleagues or family members?
The answer to all these questions is a resounding ” yes.””Emotional Intelligence (or EQ) is an indicator backed up by a powerful set of skills that we can use to improve our quality of life and better achieve our goals. As Professor Jason M. Satterfield of the University of California, San Francisco, explains in 24 informative half-hour lectures on improving emotional intelligence, the equalizer is an invaluable ability that can be learned, practiced, and used with positive results.
Although emotions have been discussed and debated for thousands of years, emotional intelligence as a field of study is relatively new, and the term itself first appeared in the psychology literature less than thirty-five years ago. In this fascinating course, Dr. Satterfield explores:
Historical philosophical and scientific understanding of emotions
Modern definition of emotions and the purposes they serve in our lives
Regardless of whether any given emotion is inherently “good ” or ” bad”
Cultural context of emotions
The main models of emotional intelligence, their strengths and potential weaknesses, and which parts of each model we could best use to understand our own emotions
The most common ways to measure the EQ are the reliability and validity of each technique
The relationship between emotional intelligence and social intelligence
The latest technological tools designed to enhance the equalizer.
The impact of your emotions
Whether you understand your emotions and their resulting behavior or not, they leave their imprint on all the situations and people you interact with throughout your life. If your emotions are constantly raging and you are hypersensitive to every personal interaction, colleagues may try to avoid your predictable high-energy chaos. If your emotions are tightly closed and rarely see the light of day, friends and partners may eventually stop trying to connect with you on the most personal and intimate levels. You may not be aware of what is going on in this relationship and what is causing people to back away from you, but you are nevertheless affected by their behavioral choices.
In addition, your emotions affect your own cognition, decision-making, and physical body every day. Have you ever been nervous before an academic test or performance review and felt “butterflies” in your stomach? Have you ever experienced such surprise or fear that “you couldn’t think clearly?”Or so happy that the physical pain seemed to lessen? In this course, Dr. Satterfield explains the many complex interactions and feedbacks between our emotions, physical body, and cognition.

Exploring Your Emotions
Emotions are internal experiences. In fact, by definition, they involve whole-body changes in our subjective experience, behavior, and physiology. Since the best way to learn about emotions is to engage as many senses as possible, Dr. Satterfield illustrates his material with a variety of engaging and useful images, videos, and other videos.
In particular, we have the opportunity to observe the development of the equalizer in action, as Dr. Satterfield interacts with three “patients” at many points in this course. We learn from his conversations with:
Carol, a 31-year-old girl who is learning to regulate emotions in order to successfully achieve her goals for a new job and her first serious boyfriend
Michael, a 51-year-old partner at an architecture firm who uses executive coaching to improve his work
Maria, a recently widowed 71-year-old woman who wants to better deal with her grief and move forward in her life.
How did I get to this point-and now what?
Were you born with the emotional makeup you have today, or did you develop it over time? To help you understand the history of your personal equalizer, you can think about it the same way you think about your athletic abilities.
Just as some children seem to be born with natural athletic abilities or quieter personalities, some aspects of emotional intelligence are inherited. For example, studies have shown that approximately 20% of American adults have a genetic mutation that makes them inherently less anxious. But regardless of your genetic makeup, childhood experiences also play a role. Did your caregivers take you outside to play ball or sit in front of the TV all day? When your EQ was developing, did your parents encourage you to express yourself? Or did they fly away in a rage and then tell you what you should and shouldn’t feel? Did you have a high school coach who helped you learn how to throw the ball correctly? A psychologist who helped you understand and overcome your fear of social situations? Each of these factors helped shape your adult abilities and habits—and your equalizer.
Fortunately, however, the analogy ends there. Because while it may be too late for you to become a football star, it’s never too late to improve your life by improving your equalizer. By increasing your emotional intelligence, you will learn:
How to identify and control your own emotions
How to choose which emotional responses you might want to change to better fit your personal Goals
A variety of techniques and skills that will help you regulate your own emotions
How to identify and control emotions in others
When and how best to influence the emotions of others
Step-by-step process of creating your own interactive skill tracker to improve your personal equalizer
Where to find numerous online resources to test, model, and improve your EQ as an ongoing, unlimited learning experience.
With the tools and skills you’ll gain from this exciting interactive course, you’ll be able to improve your emotional intelligence now and throughout your life—using your emotions the way you want to help achieve your personal goals.

More information about Self Help:
Self-help or self-improvement is a self-guided improvement—economically, intellectually, or emotionally—often with a substantial psychological basis.
Many different self-help group programs exist, each with its own focus, techniques, associated beliefs, proponents and in some cases, leaders.
Concepts and terms originating in self-help culture and Twelve-Step culture, such as recovery, dysfunctional families, and codependency have become firmly integrated in mainstream language.
Self-help often utilizes publicly available information or support groups, on the Internet as well as in person, where people in similar situations join together.
From early examples in self-driven legal practice and home-spun advice, the connotations of the word have spread and often apply particularly to education, business,
psychology and psychotherapy, commonly distributed through the popular genre of self-help books.
According to the APA Dictionary of Psychology, potential benefits of self-help groups that professionals may not be able to provide include friendship,
emotional support, experiential knowledge, identity, meaningful roles, and a sense of belonging.
