Emotional Intelligence (EQ)
It's worth 80% of your success in life!
The concept of Emotional Intelligence involves a set of skills related to your understanding of emotions and feelings and how you practically apply head-heart 'thinking' in everyday living—personally and professionally.
This seminar is designed to present the topic of Emotional Intelligence in three sections and provide strategies on how to raise your EQ. It includes information about the Stanford Marshmallow Experiment and study findings that connect an ability to delay gratification and overall success in life (even in one's SAT scores). There is good news. Since EQ is learned, you can develop and raise yours any time you want to work on it!
- Part 1 discusses the difference between emotions and feelings
- Part 2 identifies characteristics typically exhibited by individuals who exhibit high levels of EQ
- Part 3 presents information about follow-up studies to the Standford Marshmallow Experiment along with characteristics of high versus low EQ and emotional interrupters and motivators
This seminar can be presented in three 50-minute sections plus additional time for questions and answers, if desired.
