What does it mean to be an Emotional Literacy Professional?

An Emotional Literacy Professional is a trained expert who specializes in helping individuals develop their emotional intelligence and literacy. Emotional literacy refers to the ability to understand, manage, and express emotions in healthy and productive ways. Emotional literacy is an essential life skill that helps individuals navigate the complexities of their personal and professional relationships, manage stress, and cope with difficult situations.

As an Emotional Literacy Professional, the primary responsibility is to work with clients to develop their emotional intelligence and literacy. This involves assessing the client’s current emotional state, identifying areas of emotional weakness or challenge, and creating a personalized plan for improving emotional literacy.

An Emotional Literacy Professional must possess excellent communication and interpersonal skills. They must be able to listen actively, empathize with their clients, and create a safe and supportive environment for them to share their emotions. They must also be knowledgeable about emotional intelligence and its various components, including self-awareness, self-regulation, social awareness, and relationship management.

An Emotional Literacy Professional plays a crucial role in helping individuals develop the skills they need to thrive in both their personal and professional lives. By improving emotional literacy, individuals can better manage their emotions, communicate effectively, and build stronger and more meaningful relationships.

On Being Emotionally Transparent at the Right Time, the Right Place, with the Right Person

Within these pages is the powerful secret to unlocking your fullest potential as a career person, a parent, a friend, a mate, a lover, a human being. How? Through getting naked.

Getting Naked is about living life as the fullest, most authentic version of you.

(The key is it discover where and with whom to be emotionally naked–being vulnerable does not mean being stupid and careless.)

This is a book of stories, strategies, and tips, designed to overcome the negative self-narratives that obscure personal resilience and wellbeing. There comes a time when you have to defy the voices that hold you back. Getting Naked teaches you that it is your indisputable birthright to question any limitation–anything that gets in the way of your own magnificence. This book will provide you the inspiration, tools, self-discovery and support to share your naked truth and in so doing to fulfill your uniqueness every day.
