Emotionally Intelligent PMP: To be an Excellent PMP having high IQ is very good, but having high EQ is more important
To become an Emotionally Intelligent PMP, one should avoid the following:
1. Don’t get caught up in other people’s drama
Emotionally Intelligent PMP, listen carefully, provide gentle, loving, but authoritative advice, and offer assistance. But they don’t permit others’ lives and reactions to rule their own.
2. Don’t complain.
Whining and grumbling implies two things — one, that we are victims, and two, there are no solutions to our problems. Instead of looking for someone or something to blame, they immediately think of how to constructively address the dilemma.
3. Don’t always say yes — to others and themselves
They are definitive about their decisions, rather than saying “I don’t know, maybe?” or “Perhaps I’ll skip the gym today,” which invites doubt — and with that, heightened anxiety, even depression.
4. Don’t gossip
Emotionally acute people sidestep gossip as determinedly as they skirt drama. They understands that all humans are equally deserving, and that what others might perceive as a mistake is an opportunity for improvement.
5. Don’t count on others for happiness or confidence
Emotionally Intelligent PMP are self-sufficient in all manners of life, including their contentment and peace of mind. They take their emotions in their own hands and find hobbies that delight them, strive for achievements that will lead to a sense of self-worth, and search within for love and acceptance.
6. Don’t engage in negative self-talk
Emotionally Intelligent PMP acknowledge that negative thoughts are just that — thoughts — just as they recognize that the derogatory interior voices they hear are theirs to turn down, tune out, or silence completely.
7. Don’t dwell on the past
Emotionally Intelligent PMP honor their pasts — the people they have loved, the mistakes they have made, the opportunities they’ve eschewed — but are mindful of the importance of living squarely in the here and now.
By learning from the past (instead of dwelling on it), the emotionally intelligent have the power to inform their present — without diminishing their ability to advance or harness three of the most vital emotions of all: Self-satisfaction, gratitude, and hope.
As mentioned before soft-skills for PMP are very important and becoming Emotionally Intelligent PMP will increase the chance of gaining higher reputation for those soft-skills.
