Importance of Body Language and Facial Expressions

I attempted this challenge by filming myself tell a story. This was a lot harder than I imagined it could have been. I consider myself to be very expressive and loud with body language alone. I am taking ASL for my language requirement and facial/body language is a key to the language. I came across […]

Emotional Intelligence Charades

Since this is an online class, I opted to take an online quiz to test my emotional intelligence. One of the emotions I did not recognize was contempt, not to be confused with disgust, which is more of a reaction of suspicion, whereas disgust is a reaction of something unpleasant. Once I completed the quiz, […]

Humphrey (ch. 4)

Upon reading about emotional intelligence, all I could think of was empathy. That is essentially what they are referring to when talking about what it means to have emotional intelligence, and being able to sense what others are feeling emotionally and understanding that. Then I read the difference between emotional intelligence and empathy, and realized […]

Humphrey (ch. 3)

The first thing I remember reading from this chapter is about Mark Zuckerberg. It explained how in college, Mark was all brains and hardly social. I found this surprising because when I see Mark Zuckerberg give talks and speeches it seems like he was born to do just that. I just assumed that major leaders […]

Who Am I?

honest easy-going bubbly driven loyal optimistic empathetic reliable flexible communicative I feel as though these 10 words describe me as a person and as a leader the most. Reflecting on this assignment, I found it interesting that when, in general, people are asked to list qualities that describe them, they only list the positive ones, […]

Leaders as Role Models

Some skills I would most like to learn would be negotiation and managing my work-school-life balance. I chose these because I feel it is where I lack the most. I am the type of person that is constantly needing to do something. Because of this I consider myself to be a work-aholic. Sometimes I get […]

Humphrey (ch. 1)

 While reading Humphrey, I find myself going back to the same theme as the other readings. This would be that it is never about yourself, its about others- employees, coworkers, friends, etc. It is how you can represent their values, how you can make them feel important, and more. When i got to reading about […]

Carnegie (part 3)

When I first started reading this section, I must admit, I wanted to disagree. Why let someone think they are wrong, when you are fully certain of it? Isn’t that the rational thought? As I continued reading, it started to make more sense, and maybe it’s not even about what is rational. It is about […]

Carnegie (part 2)

Upon reading the first chapter in this section, it talks a lot about getting to know the people you are conducting business with. One specific example, is of C.M. Knaphle Jr. who sold fuel. He tried selling to one chain company, with no success. He took the suggestion from his professor to approach the company […]
