Episode 253 – Swan Song: Observing Animal Behavior To Improve Your EQ

Episode Overview

Today’s show is a little different, and is packed full of great lessons to bring into your selling and even personal life. Gina shares a story about her bond with a feral swan named Sammy. Yes you heard that correctly. Through this connection, she pulls valuable lessons about human behavior, communication, and empathy.  She gets into how we often make assumptions about others, illustrating the need for intentional behavior observation and understanding different “languages” people speak. She also stresses the importance of breaking stereotypes and appreciating individual routines and preferences, and encourages listeners to enhance their emotional intelligence by actively observing, empathizing, and showing compassion in their relationships. The takeaway is that the rewards of investing in understanding others far outweigh the effort, whether it’s a sassy swan or a person that you are interacting with.
