Hello everyone and welcome back to the show. Special thanks to the brave men and women working in the criminal justice field. You have much support so keep up the great work. In this solo episode, Patrick talks about the importance of Emotional Intelligence (EQ).  Why is EQ important in law enforcement? We all come equipped with emotions, and we can experience a wide range of feelings that cause each of us to react differently to our environments. EQ is the ability to be self aware and to recognize your emotions, as well as to self-regulate for the best possible outcome. You can see how this is critical in the criminal justice field. Enjoy this episode.
