Emotional Intelligence (EI): The Heart and Mind of the Matter
What do we mean by “emotional intelligence” and why is it so critical to our ability to build relationships in our lives and at work? It is more critical than ever to have true self-awareness and self-management skills in order to tackle challenges and create change. In this course, we will examine Daniel Goleman’s EI model and use the quadrant competencies to practice self-assessment. We will examine how this framework plays out in all of the arenas of our lives—at work, at home, and in our communities. And we will look at ways of strengthening our EI competencies. This highly participatory workshop aims to help you see yourself and those around you from a deeper lens.
