Sitting in his office at Neuworks Mechanical, Travis Slisher contemplates a colorful, printed out wheel of emotions, containing every nuanced human feeling from jubilant to disillusioned. Travis recently committed to taking a few moments of reflection after every interaction: every day, he sits down with the emotional wheel and writes in a journal about how different interactions made him feel and whether he showed up as the best version of himself for others.
It’s one way that Travis is trying to build his emotional intelligence, a journey he’s been on for quite some time. This particular exercise came out of a Small Giants Leadership Academy session, where facilitator Raman Chadha shared how leaders can improve their emotional intelligence by becoming more aware of their own emotions and those of others.
