The EQ Advantage: Building Stronger Physical Therapy Leaders with Emotional Intelligence


Viktor Frankl said, “Everything can be taken from a person but one thing: to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.” We enter the professional workforce armed with the know-how to provide care for individuals. But all too often, we lack the skills to manage our emotions in the heat of the challenging problems we face every single day. We get hijacked by our emotions, lose our center, and end up compromising opportunities to do our very best work. As healthcare professionals, our ability to handle our emotions and the emotions of others helps us develop more fulfilling relationships with our patients, coworkers, and families.
