Guest Post by Yvette Bethel, author of E.Q. Librium


Bullying does not just start at school. Experts say it’s a real problem in the workplace, too.

Yvette_Imagerymedia_IMG_9759_smallAuthor Yvette Bethel knows she can help individuals successfully learn how to navigate the complexities of office drama by developing your E.Q. Librium.


I was employed by a Fortune 500 company for about twenty years before I became an independent business consultant at Organizational Soul.  In my role as an employee, I was exposed to many circumstances and I was especially fascinated by the supportive and not so supportive behaviors employees exhibited toward each other – regardless of the level within the organizational hierarchy.  Every time I witnessed any of these behaviors I added them to a list I created highlighting the not so supportive behaviors. I called the list, “The Games People Play at Work”.

After looking at this list repeatedly, I took a step back in an effort to understand the common thread, and after analysis and extensive research I stumbled onto emotional intelligence, a science that not only explained the behaviors but also provided the practical skills executives, business owners, managers and employees need to build their emotional quotients and improve engagement.

For me this was an exciting find so I took steps to learn more about emotional intelligence to improve myself, then coach and train others to develop themselves.

As a speaker, emotional intelligence practitioner, trainer, lecturer, business and HR consultant my primary aim is to help organizations to position themselves for growth while building employee engagement. My desire to help employees, students navigate difficult office interactions, transform themselves and improve their quality of life motivated me to start writing my book and to create a interactive emotional intelligence learning solution video.


EQLib-BookCover-HiRezsmallMy book, E.Q. Librium Unleash the Power of Your Emotional Intelligence: A Proven Path to Career Success helps you to develop your ability to use your Emotional Quotient (EQ) to achieve self-regulation in emotionally charged situations. This helps you better position yourself to achieve your career goals. The more you develop your skills to navigate your emotions, the more effective you will be at managing yourself in emotionally charged situations. The book over 25 real-life workplace scenarios leaders and employees will encounter. This book includes inspiring success stories, easy to understand solutions to difficult situations, inspirational quotes, and self-assessment questions. E.Q. Librium is available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and my website.




Book Excerpt

“There are people who believe that when you become emotionally intelligent, you should be nice all the time. This is a complete misconception. I had a student once who stated that no matter what she did, her emotions made it difficult for her to be nice. I told her that it was more important to express herself appropriately using emotional intelligence than to be nice. I went on to explain that sometimes it is necessary to disagree or be firm, while at other times, it is appropriate to be nice or agreeable. Emotional intelligence provides the skills you need to help you understand that it is okay to disagree and when you do, how to do it constructively.”

    I suffer PTS due to the issues I dealt with on a daily basis at my job. I now stay home with my son and have for the last 10 years and still have nightmares about that job.

      No one should have to suffer like that. I always told my boys that they needed to find something they enjoy doing rather than focusing on how much money they’re going to make.
