"Emotional intelligence is developing the ability to recognise, identify and understand our own emotions and manage our own emotional experience." 

"There's a direct relationship between self-knowing or self-awareness and then skills like empathy and relationship skills." 

"It's getting that balance. You need to challenge. You can't have everything too nicey-nicey."

"Reading is crucial. It doesn't only educate you, but it helps you in your own work as well when it comes to making patterns between things and helping to understand other people."
