Have you ever wondered how much of a difference emotional intelligence (EI) truly makes in your career or personal life? I found myself pondering the same question until I sat down with Robin Hills, an expert who elegantly bridges the gap between EI and AI, revealing the potent synergy of heart and mind in our latest episode. Together, we navigated the complex terrain of how emotional acuity can shape our relationships and decision-making, emphasizing that serving with a purpose doesn’t mean leaving profits on the table. We discussed the art of authentic communication, the essence of which lies in the ability to understand and connect with others, a skill that becomes even more valuable in today’s skills-based economy.

As your host, Steve Ramona, I’ve come to realize that the soul of any organization beats within its people—their empathy, compassion, and networking prowess. Robin and I explored how these skills are not just crucial for personal growth but also for promoting products and services. We acknowledged the dance of ‘selling’ that we all perform, whether in the boardroom or at the dinner table, and how EI guides us in understanding the cultural nuances that frame these interactions globally. It was an eye-opening discussion on the universal language of emotions, and how, by mastering it, we can thrive across diverse cultural landscapes.

Wrapping up the episode, we turned to the heart of leadership—the principles of servant leadership, where vulnerability and accountability take center stage. Robin shared his insights on how leaders can cultivate an environment that not only fosters emotional well-being but also drives productivity and growth. The conversation illuminated the idea that emotional intelligence is not a destination but a journey of continual learning and self-improvement. So join us this Friday on "Together. We Serve", where we continue to champion the spirit of doing business with a servant’s heart, and where leaders come to learn how to truly lead.

Steve Ramona Doing Business with a Servant's Heart

Steve Ramona discovered his calling at a young age and is now on a mission to share his secret sauce for success. He thrives on forging meaningful connections, sharing referrals, and watching people flourish.

His contagious passion for the Law of Increase makes his podcast "Doing Business with a Servant's Heart" so successful. This show is chock-full of inspiring stories about overcoming challenges and serving others.

Steve has a knack for spreading good vibes and elevating those around him. He learned from his dad that the entrepreneurial spirit is a great way to make money. I can share stories of how people serve, struggle and win. We all must overcome something, so why not learn to serve and overcome it much faster? I learned early working in our Health Club the importance of customer service. I learned that the more I served it was a win-win for everyone. I enjoy working with people, referring people, and helping people grow. The Law of Increase is my mission when I network around the world.

I love to mentor business people and offer all the resources I have. To win, you must grow yourself first; then, you can share this with others! I am an avid reader and have built a large book directory on sharing with others.
