I own a software company for job seekers called jibberjobber.com. This course might be my most important course I've ever created for Pluralsight.

Some of the major topics we will cover include the five pillars that make up emotional intelligence with exercise suggestions for each pillar, an additional critical component to real emotional intelligence, and emotions and feelings, and how understanding the difference is critical to our emotional intelligence. By the end of this course, you'll feel confident that you can talk intelligently about emotional intelligence and help those around you grow in their emotional intelligence with ideas to create a plan to grow. From here, you should feel inspired to dive into any of the soft skill courses in Pluralsight, including how to be a great mentor, becoming a better listener, or any of the communication courses.
