Presented with style and humour – Great Stuff! So many courses (I’ve been on) suffer from lack of personality and heart – Not this one!’

Enhancing Emotional Intelligence in Your School

Emotional intelligence encompasses both personal and interpersonal domains. An understanding of EI raises personal awareness, equipping individuals to recognise their feelings in any given situation and develops the language to articulate these. It also better places the individual to regulate and adapt their responses and become more effective in their interactions with others. Developing independence, promoting positive attitudes and behaviours, supporting collaboration, and fostering confidence are all EQ processes central to effective learning.

EQ as Important in Success as IQ

Daniel Goleman suggests that as a precursor to success in exam and tests emotional quotient (EQ) is a better indicator than intelligence quotient (IQ). It is also a crucial quality if one is to be successful in the wider world. However, EI is a quality that is often little understood and also, in spite of its potential positive impact on learning and wellbeing, rarely formally fostered.
