Improve your emotional intelligence

A client asked the other day, how they could improve their Emotional Intelligence quickly.

I thought about it for a bit and decided that the quickest way to improve one's EQ is by peppering their language and actions with HIGH Emotional Intelligence words and deeds. These words are all verbs as displaying Emotional Intelligence is, in itself, an action to be taken.

This of course, is no substitute for actually training in Emotional Intelligence and becoming more fully versed in how to be a High EQ individual, but this is should I say, Readers Digest or Cliff Notes version.
