Emotional Intelligence, the Basics

Michael G. Rayel, MD.

There’s so much talk about emotional intelligence and how it can promote personal and business success. What is it really? What are its basic tenets?

Emotional intelligence is the capacity to recognize, understand, and manage one’s emotions and that of others. This “intelligent” concept focuses on the role of emotion in our daily lives and how it affects our perception, reasoning, and behavior.

Emotions are pervasive in our daily existence. From the time we wake up to the time we retire to bed, we experience emotions. We can get excited by the news of economic recovery, or we feel upset when our favorite team loses a championship game.

Moreover, we can get lonely when our friend of many years decides to look for greener pastures and we can feel anxious when our child does not go home on time after class.

So really, emotions happen everywhere and anytime. There is no day that passes by without emotions being involved. We experience emotions when we – win or lose, receive phone calls from long lost friends, greet our children good morning, say hello to our neighbors, prepare meals for our spouses, or ride the subway train.

As the tension rises in any industry, so does the stress related to the pressure from all sources to increase profits. Consequently, tempers may flare, productivity may decrease, absenteeism increases, morale decreases and person-directed aggression shows it’s ugly face. These are some of the ominous symptoms or signs of organizational dysfunction.

With legally mandated protections for line staff workers and traditional disaffected employees, there is a more assertive demand for fairness and respect among employees at all levels. Unionized workers are particularly organized to confront perceived grievances.

Hence the demand and need for executive coaching and anger management has dramatically increased nationwide.

Risk management experts project the average cost of litigation for a workplace incident in which verbal or physical abuse is charged averages $700,000 per case regardless of the outcome. Therefore, it is incumbent on organizations large and small to become proactive rather than reactive in responding to potential workplace conflicts.

Executive Coaching/anger management is an individual intervention designed to assess the client’s level of functioning in managing anger, stress, communication and emotional intelligence. The coaching focuses on providing enhancement skills in these four areas.

Anderson & Anderson is the industry standard for anger management and emotional intelligence coaching. We offer on-site training nationwide.

George Anderson, BCD, LCSW was the Key Note speaker at the 31st annual Substance Abuse Conference in Choctaw, Ms. on June 20, 2007. In addition, he trained 38 individuals to become certified anger management facilitators.

Among those in attendance were the directors of student counseling at Togaloo, Alcorn and East Alabama Universities.

Most of the participants who attended this one-day training in Adult Anger Management facilitator certification purchased the remaining training in adolescent, executive coaching and motivational interviewing. The title of Mr. Anderson’s keynote address was “Why Anger Management”. This presentation focused on the advantages of anger management for businesses, hospitals, schools, individuals, and substance abuse programs.

Major Airlines have joined hospitals and other major business industries in making use of executive coaching for key persons such as pilots. Pilots, like physicians, are constantly under stress. Such stress is natural; however, it is also an occupational hazard. Consequently, it is not surprising that, over time, many pilots will experience the negative symptoms of stress.

Prevention is by far the most effective and least costly intervention for angry and stressed employees and members of administrative staff. The Anderson & Anderson executive coaching model is available in many locations on an accelerated schedule.

I have always wanted to be a partner in improving the lives of others. Some years ago, I decided to do all the right things and get an education and a state license to practice as a clinical social worker. In the early years I was able to do what I loved and still leave my office everyday–proud that I was doing my part in changing lives while at the same time generating the kind of income that allowed me to take care of myself and still explore new and innovative ways to improve my skills as a psychotherapist.


Over the last five years, however, something happened that became a source of frustration and eventual burnout. Insurance companies decided that the rates that they previously paid for mental health services were too high. As time went on my paperwork increased, demands from insurance companies increased and soon I was doing more paperwork than the thing that my heart desired so much–seeing client. I became an assembly line of psychotherapy. I had to see more clients per day to make ends meet and soon enough I noticed the quality of my work begin to dwindle. I was burnt out and stuck. I started searching for a way out of the managed care trap.

Discovered Anger Management

As a psychotherapist I knew that my skills at the core were that of a facilitator/teacher so when I came across anger management certification I was curious. I explored this for some months and stumbled upon the Anderson and Anderson anger management model. It took three days to do the certification program and I have not looked back since. Like any business, it is difficult especially changing over to an all anger management practice. However, it has been rewarding. Now I am able to not only see clients without the burden of insurance but I provide executive coaching, training seminars and consultation on anger management issues.

My Experience

I have one piece of advice to any individual starting out in anger management–do not underestimate the power of the internet. When I provided services as a psychotherapist I spent time and money in advertising that yielded very little. Today I utilize free and paid sites like,, as well as an article posting site like to advertise my services and post articles. Today all my referrals come from the internet.

My Groove is Back

I must say that I have gotten my “groove back” Today, I am insurance free and I have the opportunity to influence the lives of many while in the knowledge that I am giving to my clients all of me–not the burnt-out therapist waiting for managed care to make another ruling that will burden me and take away the quality of service my clients demand. Thanks anger management! You saved my practice and restored my passion

In this article I wanted to look at a few feeling words that seem similar-feeling detached, distant, separate and disconnected. It is very important to recognize if we are in this place. Feeling disconnected has implications for how we related to others. If we are not connected we may lack a sense of how our actions impact others and enviably miss the cues that our actions are not being viewed as positive. Soon conflict and anger can be directed at us because others view is as hostile.

For example a person who is having difficulty at work but cannot for many reason leave his job may become numb and disconnected just to make it through the day. His co-works may notice changes in his body language and his facial expressions or even a slight anger in his voice. As a result they become defensive and cautious around him and soon interpersonal conflict develops. If this employee was able to perceive, identify and name(PIN) his emotions he would have had a starting place to take action to avoid at the very least, conflict with his co-workers, letting them know that what he was expressing was not about them. Without this awareness he created the impression that his feeling of disconnection were related to anger at them.

Awareness and the development of an emotional vocabulary are key to emotional intelligence and hence anger management. Stay tuned from more on this topic.
