This emotional intelligence speech by Daniel Goleman helps diagnose and prevent behaviors that would obstruct such intelligence from blossoming.
His first insight discusses one of the main indicators of a need for an improvement of emotional intelligence. He believes that individuals should be able to recognize "patterns of problems in the domain of human relationships." For instance, if a reoccurring social drama occurs in your life, it may partially have to do with you.
The author finishes his emotional intelligence speech by stating the importance for developing positive behaviors from an early age. Children mirror their parents and so it is important they are emulating good behaviors. He feels this doesn't mean a parent should worry about corrupting their child, but rather just showing that they care.
