Google recently found, in a major study of its hiring process, that its top employees possess empathy, emotional intelligence, and emotional safety (at the top of the list). These “soft skills” have now become the basis for what companies desire most in their leaders.



That’s why the environment of emotional safety and the principles of emotional intelligence are the foundation of who we are and what we do with at Famous at Home. In this episode, Josh and Christi talk about why emotional intelligence matters from a young age and how to build emotional intelligence in your kids.



Josh and Christi talk about:



* Why it's important to "dose" your kids instead of "doucing" them when you feel them becoming emotionally distant.* How to begin using emotional vocabulary in your home and why it's important.* How to create an emotional growth environment for your kids.
