Emotionally Intelligent Culture

In a culture where openness and transparency are bantered about like a tennis ball in a match, our culture is awkwardly missing out on the sharing of emotional intelligence. Some hide their emotions as it eats away at their core, while others wear it out on their sleeve not as a means to let it be free but to potentially attract others to their pity party. Being aware of our and other’s emotions and then being able to act in a quality way to use that intelligence for the betterment of the situation and those involved is critical to building long-lasting human relationships.   Interested in knowing more about your Emotional Intelligence?  Reach out to us at YourGuide@PromiseCulture.com for a no cost/no commitment emotional intelligence assessment and discover how you go about life, why you are driven the way you are and to what level are you aware and regulate your emotions for yourself and others.

As you read this you may have arrived here via a link from any number of the social media channels this is posted to – Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter etc.  This opportunity to express thoughts about culture is enabled by the very digital platform which our culture can sometimes use for good or sometimes for evil.  When embraced for good or evil (interpretation held by the provider and reader independently) we have the opportunity to spread thoughts into the culture and then hide behind the wall of electronic façade. Today our culture needs to be open and learn the skills of constructive debate such that we open up ourselves for complete exposure rather than tossing our digital stone and hiding behind the electronic wall of social media.

Responsibility vs Accountability Culture

In our culture there is a high desire by people to be responsible.  Individuals want to prestige of taking on the responsibility and others like to delegate responsibility to free themselves of the demands.

Entitlement impacts culture

The belief that one is inherently deserving of something – privileges, treatment, services etc. causes  a culture to become distracted with what is authentically important.
