What makes you happy?

Let’s think about it…

I hear a lot of different answers to this question, and it’s for sure, unique to everyone. In the EQ-i 2.0 tool, your overall Well-Being, aka “Happiness”, is also assessed. According to our Multi-Health Systems EQ-i 2.0 assessment, “Happiness includes feelings of satisfaction, contentment, and the ability to enjoy the many aspects of one’s life. It is different than the other emotional intelligence abilities in that Happiness both contributes to, and is a product of, emotional intelligence. As such, your result in Happiness is like an indicator of your emotional health and well-being.”

The specific leadership skills evaluated in the the EQ-i 2.0 tool for your overall Happiness include: self-regard, optimism, interpersonal relationships, and self-actualization. Said another way, your level of respecting yourself/confidence, positive attitude/outlook in life, mutually satisfying relationships, and pursuit of meaning/self-improvement are the factors that contribute to your overall happiness.

I took the Yale University course, “The Science of Well-Being”, earlier this year and it confirmed my EQ understanding of what truly makes one happy. I also learned a bunch of tips and tricks on how to increase my happiness and would love to share them with you.
