The first step in building your EI is to “Know thy self”.  After all, until we understand ourselves and our own motivations, how can we truly under those of our colleagues and competitors?

Professional trainer, mentor, entrepreneur, and CEO Steve Jacobs offers his expert guidance to help you do just that!
