Accesssing Emotional Intelligence to Enhance Learning

Although we tend to measure intelligence in school based on IQ, there is another type of intelligence that is critical to success in life called Emotional Intelligence. Emotional Intelligence is the ability to manage distressing emotions, negotiate social situations, and collaborate with others. This presentation demonstrates how to combine cognition, emotion, and intelligence to solve problems and approach life with more balance and confidence. Participants will assess their skills in the area of “Personal Competence” and “Social Competence”, and learn techniques to strengthen both areas. It is not enough to have a 4.0 GPA. Negotiating challenges in life requires an additional skill set that can be learned and enhanced.
