June 1st, 2022

In GREENCREST’s latest Ignite Your Business® Podcast, host Kelly Borth talks with Eric Pennington, managing partner at Spirit of EQ, who discusses the value of emotional intelligence, or EQ, and why it is important to business success. In the most recent podcast, Pennington details the importance of understanding and learning from your thoughts and emotions and how EQ can help lead to better decision-making.

“The better I am at making decisions, the better my results, better performance, better outcomes,” Pennington says. “Ultimately though, not everyone gets up every morning and says ‘Okay, today I want to make sure I make good decisions’, but we all want that, and every organization wants that.”
