On today's episode, we spoke about emotional intelligence with the Inspired Dentist, Dr. Shakila Angadi.  She is a dentist and social & emotional intelligence certified coach that is determined to help improve the lives of fellow health care professionals. She graduated from the University of Missouri Kansas City School of Dentistry and has been in private practice for over 11 years. She realized that empathetic communication and self-awareness techniques were the key to expanding her practice and leadership skills exponentially.  You can learn more about EQ and her coaching programs on www.theinspireddentist.comand on social media Facebook and Instagram @theinspireddentist.

We start out defining EIQ, or the emotional intelligence quotient and how she ended up becoming a certified coach in this area.  She tells us the common issues health professionals have that seek her expertise and how she helps them address those issues.  In discussing how it can help the doctor-patient relationship, she gives a particularly powerful piece of advice, saying just ONE THING to each patient, and that will help all of us connect with our patients just a little bit better.
