Self Presentation in social intelligence

Self presentation is another of the skills that underpins social intelligence.  It is made up of a variety of factors that include such things as charisma, assertiveness, self confidence and self control.  However, as Daniel Goleman points out self presentation without the necessary substance to back it up is no substitute for skills and expertise.  In other words, you have to walk the walk as well as talk the talk …..!

What is synchrony?

Synchrony is a wonderful word that has a melodic tone to it, it even sounds rich on the tongue when you say it.  Yet, it’s a word (and a concept) that most of us are unfamiliar with.

Does Love Still Exist?

This is guest post by Mohanalakshmi Rajakumar author of Love Comes Later

St. Valentine may be horrified by the cherubs touting candy, flowers or jewelry. The overemphasis of eros, or romantic love, may have merged out of rampant marketeering.

Me with my head down working …!

Today is the day … I’ve been putting it off for several weeks now, but it’s finally come around and I can no longer ignore the work I have to do. It’s not that I mind doing it, in fact if anything, I’ll look forward to it. And I know that I’ll feel so much better once I’ve done it.
