“If you are like most people, you already recognize some of the warning signs that pop up when stress is looming. The question is: do you heed their warning?”1  During a quality and patient safety month during my intern year, a group of co-residents on the rotation and I were asked to read Emotional Intelligence 2.0 by Travis Bradberry and Jean Greaves. The four of us met with our program director for a discussion to reflect on the four aspects of emotional intelligence it serves to address. This included self-awareness, self-management, social awareness and relationship management. Although we each opted for different ways to improve our emotional intelligence, it was apparent how useful this type of awareness could be in the field of anesthesiology. Such improvement items included things like “get to know yourself under stress” or “seek feedback.”1
