Emotional Intelligence (EQ or EI) is a term created by two researchers – Peter Salavoy and John Mayer – and popularized by Dan Goleman in his 1996 book of the same name.

EI is the ability to:

  • Recognize, understand and manage our own emotions
  • Recognize, understand and influence the emotions of others

In practical terms, this means being aware that emotions can drive our behavior and impact people (positively and negatively), and learning how to manage those emotions – both our own and others – especially when we are under pressure.

Listen to May 2, 2019 Elevate presenter Bill Benjamin explain more about EI.

Too often we fall for the myth that we are only able to innovate during our youth.

As we age, we ignore our imaginative thinking. We allow our innovation and creativity to go dormant. We think that we can’t do much to increase our creative prowess.

So when does our innovation and creativity actually peak?

Everyone has the potential to break new ground, to be more inventive at any age. So why aren’t we more innovative?

Our obstacles to being more innovative are

  1. Believing an early and inaccurate label that frames our brain and robs of our confidence that we are not creative.
  2. Accepting the myth that creativity declines as we age and is best in our youth.
  3. Not exercising the creative epicenters of our brain.

You can jumpstart and exercise your innovative thinking muscles daily. You can mine your innovative potential and become a creative genius.

So where do you start?

Taking a leap over old ideas and ushering in the new isn’t always easy. Tossing aside the tried and true for the unknown, no matter how promising, involves investment and risk.

But if you want to keep pace with the pack or even outrun it, there are times when taking the leap is just what you need to do. You need to Collaborate To Innovate on December 14 at Wynn Encore.

Making room for new ideas doesn’t mean you have to break down the Wall of China. Small changes in beliefs, or ways of doing things, just have a way of creeping into everyday business.

So where do you start?

Become aware:  Ask yourself and your team a series of three questions: 

  1. Why do I do things the way that I do?  

Look at how long systems have been in place. Think about the increased value your casino would derive from doing things better or faster or cheaper. 

  1. What would happen if I could increase efficiency or effectiveness by two?

Consider what manual tasks could be automated or technologically advanced.

  1. If we were going to start from scratch with a white canvas, what would we do differently and why? What is our casino’s norm? What would we like our norm to be?
