Michelle Thompson discusses emotional intelligence (aka EQ) and its importance in ministry and international contexts. Emotional intelligence is composed of four components: self-awareness, self-control, social awareness, and relationship management. Technical competence is not enough in ministry - being able to relate with people is crucial. Michelle shares effective methods for becoming more self-aware and developing your emotional intelligence, which can lead to positive changes in relationships and overall well-being.

Michelle serves as Director of the Executive Coaching and Consulting program in the Townsend Institute at Concordia University in Irvine, California.
