Course Detailed Description

Emotional Intelligence is the ability to acknowledge, understand, adapt and express our emotions in positive ways, and to acknowledge, understand, empathize and interact with the emotions of others. It is an essential skill at all stages of life and learning, fostering success in both personal and professional contexts.

 

It is said that “Any emotion that is not acknowledged cannot be understood. Any emotion that is not understood cannot be controlled. Any emotion that is not controlled 

will control you.” 

 

Emotional Intelligence affects every aspect of our lives and can transform the outcome of every life challenge. Five key elements of Emotional Intelligence are self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy and social interaction. People with high EI can identify how they are feeling, what those feelings mean, and how those emotions impact their own behavior and their interactions with other people. High EI helps in conflict management and communication, which are crucial skills in the workplace and in any social interaction. People who can regulate their emotions can think objectively before they act. Operating with empathy and understanding is a critical part of teamwork and leadership. EI helps us guide relationships and makes others feel heard and understood. We become more productive as individuals, as a group and as a society. 

 

This course will provide a dynamic learning environment will plenty of exercises, case studies and teaching tools. Participants are welcome to discuss some of their own classroom and workplace challenges and we will explore how Emotional Intelligence techniques can be used to create impactful changes.
