President’s Message – Promoting EI Outside The Workplace

I like writing about the things that I’m thinking about.  I’d truly enjoy hearing back from you on these things or anything else that we should ponder.  I’m seem to be talking over the canyon and have yet to hear an echo!

Emotional Intelligence and EFBC involvement have changed me and my life in unmeasurable ways.  I can’t imagine how I got along before.  But I’ve begun to struggle.  The rest of the world doesn’t know EI!  While we’re all practicing disciples living by example, we’re otherwise without tools to share with the non-initiated.

What happens in forum stays in forum.  How precise is that concept when it comes to sharing the EI philosophy and practice outside of EFBC and our safe haven forums?  Our families could benefit, don’t you agree?  Your brothers and sisters?  How about other friends or workmates?  What have we got for them?  Not enough I think.

Let me know what you have to say about this thought:  As part of the work of EFBC and each one of us, should we develop and implement the EI extension plan (by any name you like) for the outside world?

I’m writing this a few days before Thanksgiving and I’d like to share one of the things that I’m thankful for.  Every experience that I’ve had with each of you in the EFBC. Happy Thanksgiving!

"If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together. EFBC, 20 Years Deep."
