Would you rather “know about emotional intelligence” or “use emotional intelligence”? What’s the difference?

You’ve probably seen the model for putting EQ into action, but what does that actually look like in daily life? Members of our community from around the world were together for a conference so we asked. Here are their ideas in 90-seconds… and please share your answer in the comments below:
