Emotional Intelligence Practicals (EIP) or Practical Emotional Intelligence is a term that describes a pragmatic philosophical/psychological approach towards living, and was developed by Gal Stiglitz.
A) Career Fulfillment: Dissatisfaction in existing career. Confusion and inability to choose/create a fulfilling career/lifestyle.
B) Relationships & Communication: Frustration in existing relationships, tension, conflicts. Inability to create/sustain fulfilling working relationships.
C) Change Management: Inability to deal with changes/losses/disappointments or with high pressure/stressful/overwhelming situations that drain and age people.
Gal believes that Practical Emotional Intelligence is an essential skill to have in the 21st century and that it's the missing link in modern education. It's lack is creating low self-awareness which is actually one of the main causes for many mental conditions such as stress, anxiety, depression, addictive/compulsive behaviour and so on. He believes that like any form of intelligence it can be acquired by anyone willing to learn it.
