"The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change." - Carl Rogers
Think about the last time you were really angry. It was around dinner time and you were getting pretty hungry, and you found yourself at an event you hated. You could feel the heat start to rise, and while you were trying to get a grip on it, you noticed that your windshield had been cracked by a random rock. Suddenly, you got really angry.
These types of situations - from minor inconveniences to major crises - are universally experienced and stir up emotions. And emotions are very powerful. They influence how we perceive the world, how we act, what motivates us to action, and how we make decisions.
Emotional intelligence is the ability to understand, process, and harness emotions, and to recognize their presence in other people. It is an integral component of modern leadership, self-awareness, and building strong relationships.
This class is going to focus on Emotional Intelligence: what it is, why it’s important, how it’s measured, how you can improve your own EQ, and what the benefits are for those who improve.
