Emotional Intelligence

Why the focus on EQ?

Navigating through this millennium can be challenging for any age. The advancements in communicating through technology are diminishing the face to face engagement, contributing to anxiety and stress in teenagers making it harder to understand and interpret their own and/or others feelings.

When we misinterpret something, then we can’t respond to it accurately, therefore resulting in a poor outcome. Through exploring Self Awareness (the first quadrant in EQ), young women can ‘learn to identify their thoughts, feelings, beliefs and values’. This is the beginning of the journey to understanding the emotional intelligence methodology. Social Awareness – ‘how to interpret other’s emotions’; Self-Regulation ‘How to manage your own emotions’ and Social Management – ‘How to contribute positively to the environment around you’

Emotional Intelligence is a tool that you can continually build on.

Guaranteed to increase young women’s coping strategies and build their tool kit for Self-Esteem, Compassion and Leadership, this workshop is a must.
