We love to swim, bike, read, and hike. We enjoy jazz and classical music.
We are a team of humans with our own interests, talents, and imperfections. By training, we are neuroscientists, artists, organizational psychologists. Some are writers or cultural anthropologists. And yes, one of us is even a comedian.
You could say we are life long learners who love team work, dislike boring, and really enjoy coming up with new ideas. We had fun designing this simple and engaging solution for remote work. We want all organizations to be as human and emotionally intelligent as possible. One at a time.
Actions really matter.
We, at Emotionally Speaking, believe that what we do on a daily basis is important. Those actions are what shape the culture of our organization. And it's a big deal.
For us, emotional intelligence is necessary for human relationships, both personal and professional. We practice listening, clear communication, empathy, and self-motivation. We strive to have a strong work ethic and take responsibility for our actions. These things make a huge difference.
Especially now, in a remote workforce, what we do matters. We have to be mindful of how we interact with one another. Working in an emotionally intelligent way is more important than ever.
BEHIND THE NAME
Emotionally Speaking, according to co-founders Jennifer C. Johnson and Kirti Vaswani, means speaking with emotional intelligence.
"Deep down," Jennifer continues, "most of us know what the right thing to do is. We know that we shouldn't get too angry, or we should show more understanding to a colleague or friend."
"So, if we know what the emotionally intelligent response is, then why don't we respond accordingly? It's because applying it in real life is much harder," Kirti adds. "That's where we come in. We want to help employees not just learn emotional intelligence but also how and when to apply it."
Emotionally Speaking is a scalable, assisted by AI, technology-based solution to teach emotional intelligence to remote workers.
