EQ Not IQ: Mastery™ Testimonial

Art DeLorenzo has presented the "EQ not IQ" to my clients on two occasions and I will enthusiastically have him do it again if his schedules allows. He makes a compelling case that Emotional Intelligence is a better harbinger of future success than IQ through a variety of ways including story telling, interactive exercises, and a wonderful video that details what stress does to us physiologically. Our clients loved the workshop, especially Art's sincere manner of presentation, and I highly recommend you use him as well.

The Art and Science of Forgiveness



By Frederic Luskin, Ph.D. and Daniel E. Martin, Ph.D.


Why Forgiveness?
In a competitive and often vindictive society, the opportunity for being hurt, mistreated and injured remain high. Holding on to real or perceived slights creates bitterness, resentment, and sadness which take their toll on physical and mental health. Research on forgiveness interventions has shown them to reduce blood pressure, the experience of pain, anger, depression and stress and lead to greater feelings of self-efficacy, optimism, hope, compassion and ease.
What is Forgiveness?

CHILDREN, EQ & MINDFULNESS:
PART 2 of 6


Can Kindness Be Taught?
Thanks to a challenge from the Dalai Lama, a number of preschools are trying to teach something that has not always been considered an academic subject: kindness.

"Can you look inside yourself and tell me what you're feeling?" Danielle Mahoney-Kertes asked a class of prekindergarten students at P.S. 212 in Queens recently.  "Happy," one girl offered. "Sick," said another. A boy in a blue T-shirt gave a shy thumbs down. "That happens too," Ms. Mahoney-Kertes, a literacy coach, reassured him.

The exercise was part of the  Kindness Curriculum,  developed by the Center for Healthy Minds at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, in which preschoolers are introduced to a potpourri of sensory games, songs and stories that are designed to help them pay closer attention to their emotions.

Topic:  Why are our most important teachers paid the least?

 

Looking Ahead...
 
Parts 4, 5, & 6 of our Children, EQ, & Mindfulness Newsletter Series will include original articles crafted by Rosie Kuhn, PhD. 

Dr. Rosie Kuhn, author of Cultivating Spirituality in Children and many other books that support personal awareness and empowerment, always brings a fascinating perspective to cultivating emotional intelligence within ourselves and our children. In April, May & June, Dr. Rosie will bring to light ways of looking at discipline that will inspire and empower you to perhaps practice discipline, only in support of empowering your children to practice discipline with more enthusiasm.

    PARTNER CORNER



       

A strong we b presence is a valuable asset for all businesses. Websites tell your story and share valuable information 24 hours a day. In today's digital world, we rely on internet for information, access, and credibility. Even if your business comes from referrals, a new potential client will likely Google you and your company before contacting you. In that case, the lack of a website can  severely limit your opportunity set.
  

An interactive and authentic website conveys a message to clients, prospects and partners that you are committed to excellence. Also,  since clients may desire online access to their accounts, it would be better to provide them a portal on your website where they sign into their accounts. An engaging website affords an advisor a competitive advantage when fostering trust and building new relationships.
