The Central Importance of Emotional Intelligence in the present climate in schools

SixSeconds 30SEpt
It is argued that EI (Emotional Intelligence) is more important than IQ when it used comes to learning.  Balance and happiness are central to the condition of being a learner.   Six Seconds are an international emotional intelligence network who use evidence-based research to offer innovative tools and lifechanging training for educators and parents. Never before has Emotional Intelligence been so critical to teaching and learning in our schools than in the present learning context, while living with Covid-19.

Navigating emotions in times of turmoil - EQ to support better relationships going back to school

Sinking or swimming? We’re in unusual times and each of us respond differently to  change and challenge; how we think and feel directly impacts what we do, every moment of everyday. Mindfulness and emotional intelligence has a critical part to play in our success and the success of our students. 

This webinar focusses on how we can use emotional intelligence to   navigate relationships and work in uncertain and changeable times. We’ll explore how being emotionally smart can increase insight, connection and purpose and lead to more meaningful outcomes. 

We’ll start with understanding, appreciating and managing ourselves and how we interpret and respond to change and challenge. We’ll then develop ways to engage students in being more emotionally intelligent and support them to apply simple strategies to get better results everyday.

If you're sinking, make sure you’re also waving; if you’re swimming make sure you’re supporting others to stay afloat. 

Katharine Roff is the Regional Director in Europe for Six Seconds, a global non profit committed to growing emotional intelligence. We think the world would be a better place if a billion people were practicing the skills of emotional intelligence (EQ). So, we research and share scientific, global, transformational tools & methods to support that goal. People are at the heart of what we do and why we exist because emotions drive people and people drive performance.
