The conversation is about emotional intelligence, and how it is an important part of personal development. The speaker discusses the 'kick the cat syndrome', which is the idea that when someone is feeling overwhelmed, they might take their emotions out on those around them. He stresses that it is not easy to work on emotional intelligence, and that it is a work in progress. He then goes on to discuss the importance of controlling impulses, and gives an example of people who cannot ignore their phones even when they are in an important conversation. He ends by suggesting that everyone turn their phones off when they enter a room, and how this is often not done. Overall, the conversation highlights the importance of emotional intelligence, and the need for people to take control of their impulses.
