If you’ve happened to stumble upon this blog, first let me say thank you for reading. Second, let me introduce myself. My name is Andrienne Marr, I was born on one of the greatest islands in the world – Jamaica. I have started a podcast with my dad about a subject that has brought great joy to my life…Emotional Intelligence. Brace yourself, the word Emotional Intelligence will be used quite a lot so hang in there.
The area of Emotional Intelligence has been a source of great inspiration, motivation and enlightenment for myself. So that prompted me and my dad to start the podcast, Chat and Reason.
The point of starting Chat and Reason was to spread the “good word” about how beneficial it can be to all facets of life. My journey, although still in its infancy, has had a rapid progression with every relationship in my life. If I had to choose which relationship has seen the greatest advancement, it would be the relationship with myself. I have benefited the most as I am seeing minor changes yield exponential rewards. I have found a better sense of self, greater understanding, and a power I always dreamed of but thought that was not attainable. I’ve been able to awaken something inside of me that is so pure, authentic and beautiful. All this stems from a greater level of self-awareness, yet this is just the tip of the iceberg. This is what make me so passionate about emotional intelligence and wanting to share and explore with others. The podcast helps me to do just that. My dad was a source of inspiration and it was only natural that I invited him to use our creative voices to share this message.
Along the way we will discuss many topics surrounding the components of Emotional Intelligence: Self-Awareness, Self-Management, Relationship Management, and Social Awareness. Each topic will be rich with research and practical first hand experiences. We will provide a honest recount of our experience, the good, the bad, and the ugly.
We hope to build a community and share in the growth. The aim is to find like-minded people and with the hope to inspire newly found community members.
- We’ve created a space for you to learn and grow through shared personal experiences and takeaways to apply to your own life.
- You will learn more about controlling, understanding, responding better to your emotions.
- You will be able to get a better grip of relationships both personal and professional.
Investing in your well-being is never a bad thing. Start here and open yourself up to different perspectives that can facilitate your growth.
If we have been able to inspire one person with the podcast then we will have already created something worthwhile. If not, it serves as a time capsule for our own journeys, while the blog serves as a living archive for every and anyone looking to increase their own Emotional Quotient (EQ).
The blogs will also include some great material that we find and want to share with our subscribes. Anything we can all benefit from is fair game and we look forward to spreading the knowledge.
