Mindfulness Techniques to Empower Emotional Intelligence
So many people make the mistake of thinking that the key to effective project management is to put your head down and work yourself to the bone. So much so that you sacrifice precious family time, miss dates with your partner, and stop looking after your health in order to ‘get ahead’. And all this for a clunky work flow where communication is poor and timelines can’t be met.
What if I told you there was an easier way? –> That the answer lies within. Through self development and mindfulness.
“I undertook coaching with Ruth over several months through my workplace. She helped me develop techniques to address fatigue and stress/anxiety, with a focus on applying these in a work environment. Ruth is a deep listener who brings genuine care and empathy to her coaching style. She takes the time to understand what you as an individual need and helps you arrive at the right goals and practices for where you are at. I felt supported throughout the process and was able to appreciate and notice even small steps forward through Ruth’s encouragement. Ruth’s background in meditation means she has a unique skill-set to support holistic growth and deep change. Through the coaching I have developed a toolkit to apply to difficult situations in the workplace and have taken steps forward in my self-confidence and self-compassion. I would highly recommend Ruth as a coach for both professional and personal growth.”

“We had an amazing session with Ruth from Sunrise Well! She worked with two of our Scrum Master teams from the University of Adelaide. She walked us through the skills involved in mindfulness and emotion intelligence. She provided a warm and open environment where people felt comfortable sharing and asking questions. It was a great bonding experience for us all. There were many important take aways that participants were keen to share back with their teams”.

Dedicating yourself to improving your emotional intelligence is going to give you a much greater chance of success than proving your IQ.
You and your team can stand out from the crowd by developing skills in emotional intelligence you can use in every interaction at work. Use both emotional intelligence (often called EI or EQ) and mindfulness meditation to improve your self awareness and help you become a happier and more successful person as a result.
Why improve your emotional intelligence?
Research has shown that people with higher levels of emotional intelligence are more likely to be happier, perform better at work, and even have an increased chance of success in their job.
People with high emotional intelligence are more likely to be a positive influence at work, work better in teams, and take on leadership roles.
In fact, a recent research study found that agile project teams experienced a positive impact on perceived effectiveness, decision-making and improved listening following 3 minutes of mindful breathing.
People who know how to manage their emotions get the best outcome, and mindfulness plays a starring role in this process.
Improve your communication skills, manage your emotions, handle conflict, and deal with stress and anxiety by learning to understand and enhance your emotional intelligence by tapping into the benefits of mindfulness.
What’s more, improving at work means you’re also improving at home, so it’s a win-win!
