You might be familiar with the phrase 'emotional intelligence,' but do you know how deeply it can impact the lives of those on the front lines of service?
Today's guest, Greg Campbell, Ph.D. VP of Law Enforcement & Government at TalentSmart EQ and former Deputy Chief Inspector of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service unpacks the transformative power of emotional intelligence, particularly amongst service personnel.
Drawing from his personal journey that began in Compton and led to a career in law enforcement, Greg offers invaluable perspectives on understanding and harnessing our emotions to shape healthier actions.
Growing up, Greg's father, a Vietnam War veteran, was emotionally distant due to unaddressed war trauma, and this personal experience sparked his interest in emotional intelligence and its potential to heal and empower.
His research on the impact of emotional intelligence on first responders and military personnel is absolutely fascinating. Emotional intelligence is not just about processing trauma but also about understanding our emotions and using them to guide our actions better.
As our conversation with Dr. Campbell evolves, we touch upon the realities of law enforcement and how emotional intelligence can play a vital role in policing. The power of emotional intelligence is not just theoretical; it's practical and applicable in the real world—from mentoring and training to community policing.
