Emotional Intelligence

«In a very real sense we have two minds, one that thinks and one that feels. These two fundamentally different ways of knowing interact to construct our mental life.»
Daniel Goleman

Emotional intelligence is the ability to understand and manage one's own emotions and, at the same time,
to recognize and influence the emotions of those around us.
Emotional intelligence is an important element to possess because our brains are programmed to tap into both the rational and emotional parts, so it would be a waste not to take into account the information that emotions convey.
According to the Word Economic Forum, emotional intelligence is one of the 10 key skills for success in
the near future. A high level of emotional intelligence has a direct impact on people's performance and well-being.

What will you get from this learning journey?
- Ideas and information that can inspire insights on the topic
- A greater awareness of emotional information
- Understanding on how you can train your emotional intelligence

Main topics

- Emotional intelligence: what it is and why it is so useful to train it
- The Six Seconds’ Emotional Intelligence model
- Self awareness: emotional literacy, recognizing emotions, discovering the messages within emotions
- Self management: discovering our behavior/response patterns, exploring how we can be intentional in our communication
- Self direction: vision and sustainability of my noble goal, the power of empathy

Faculty for the course: Tania Paradiso, Otherwise
