I loved it all, but I have picked out my favorite parts of each section:
Self Awareness Strategies:
1. Ask others for feedback about how you handle your emotions and listen carefully to what they say.
2. Weekly or bi-weekly take stock of your life and write down situations that you didn't deal with well and then list which quality that you wanted to honor but didn't. For example:
Honesty is the quality and then write down a situation that I didn't handle well where I wasn't completely honest. The next time a situation like this comes up, I might deal with it differently because I will remember the list.
Self Management Strategies:
1. To prepare for change, make a list of things in my life that could possibly change and write down ideas for how I could deal with that. I really enjoyed doing this and it really has been helpful.
Social Awareness Strategies:
1. Become a great observer. Learn how to sense the mood of a room and check to see if your observations are correct.
1. Listen. Listen. Listen. Don't interrupt.
Relationship Management Strategies:
1. Use these phrases more: "I am sorry." "Please" "Thank You"
Fabulous book. I highly recommend it.
