The Emotional Intelligence Workshop
What is emotional intelligence?
Emotional Intelligence is our ability to manage our emotions intelligently. A joint study by Harvard and Stanford Universities found that only 15% of success in life is due to IQ (mental intelligence), and 85% is due to EQ or Emotional Intelligence (Emotional Intelligence, Daniel Goleman).
Why is emotional intelligence important?
Mental intelligence, or IQ, is only one part of who we are. EQ (Emotional Intelligence) involves increasing our self-awareness and deals with how we process delayed gratification, fear, anger and anxiety. People with excellent emotional intelligence have good self-awareness and are aware of how their emotions are affecting them and others around them. Good emotional intelligence is demonstrated in a person’s ability to resolve conflict well, manage hurtful impulses and listen with empathy. The two broad categories of EQ are Personal Competence and Social Competence. Personal Competence includes self image, self-awareness and self-control. Social Competence includes social skills and listening skills.
What is included in the EQ Workshop?
This two day workshop provides students with an opportunity to grow in their own personal self-awareness, learn how to handle their emotions more effectively and to improve their interpersonal communication skills. The workshop has three elements:
Students will have the opportunity to complete three self-assessment tools in preparation for the workshop. These tools will increase their self-awareness and will help identify areas for personal growth.
