Emotional Intelligence Matters, LLC


My name is Jana Greco and I’m delighted to have you visit my website. I’m a former educator who is on a different mission now: to help people get their emotions working for them, rather than against them. Our emotions are not out to get us . . . we just need to know what to do with them. And as we become adept, our emotions are catalysts in helping us to reach our goals and to live our values. Emotions are designed to serve us, not the other way around. And they are crucial to our health and wellness.

Emotional Intelligence impacts our careers, our personal relationships, our health, and our lives in general. Achieving what I refer to as acute self-awareness alone, helps in all aspects of our lives. You may often hear people talk about emotional intelligence in terms of “soft skills” ~ when in fact there is nothing soft about them, they are essential skills.

Self-Awareness is the foundation that underlies several other associated competencies within the realm of emotional intelligence. It’s a critical attribute for successful leadership, and is much more complex and comprehensive than simply tuning into your feelings. We all need to know how to harness our own competencies before we can effectively lead or impact others.

“If your emotional abilities aren’t in hand, if you don’t have self-awareness, if you are not able to manage your distressing emotions, if you can’t have empathy and have effective relationships, then no matter how smart you are, you are not going to get very far.”

— Daniel Goleman

According to a series of surveys done by Organizational Psychologist, Tasha Eurich, she found that 95% of our population thinks we are self-aware, when only 10-15% truly are. She further explains that we think we come across one way, but then when we can see ourselves interacting with others through video, we don’t look nor sound the way we think we do. It’s actually quite shocking. Sometimes we need to back up in order to go forward. And I’ve seen folks time and again journey toward self-awareness, and discover that it’s truly a life-altering gift. The best part, it doesn’t even require batteries. 😉
