Unlabeled Leadership

026: Peter Popovich Explains Emotional Intelligence

March 3, 2021

On Wednesday episodes, I share leadership beliefs and unlabel terminology. I invite guests to share their expertise about small or big acts of leadership.

In Episode 26, Peter Popovich, emotional intelligence expert, shares how we can understand the meaning of emotional intelligence, improve how we can benefit from an assessment, and advise us on strengthening our emotional intelligence.

00:00 Prologue: A Really Brief Introduction

Peter was the guest of Episode 006: Peter Popovich and the Pickled Lifelong Journey. Peter is my go-to professional about all things related to emotional intelligence.

00:52 Part 1: RUM Is an Acronym

The formal definition is…formal and difficult to recall. I prefer how Peter explains emotional intelligence as RUM2.

12:56 Part 2: The Good and Bad of Emotional Intelligence Assessments

Assessments may have some reliability challenges, but Peter has found some valuable ways that you can leverage your emotional intelligence assessment.

24:45 Part 3: Advice from the Four Areas of Emotional Intelligence

There are several tactics you can leverage to strengthen your emotional intelligence. Based on the four parts of emotional intelligence, Peter advises on developing self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and relationship management (the four areas are from the book Emotional Intelligence 2.0).
