Emotional intelligence is the capacity to know one's own emotions and to effectively manage and express them. Interpersonally, emotional intelligence is to tune into another's experience and handle relationships with authenticity and finesse. Developing strong emotional intelligence improves all interactions while benefitting our mental well-being and our relationships.
Do you often find yourself repeating destructive thought patterns, like comparing yourself to others, playing out worst-case scenarios, or fixating on how you should be better? Do you ever notice yourself acting with great maturity and wisdom in some situations, and then just an hour or day later find yourself defensive, reactive, or judgmental?
In this mindfulness-based workshop, Kelly Werner shares the latest neuroscience and psychology findings on emotional intelligence and leads experiential exercises focused on self-awareness, self-management, and productive conversation. Kelly provides tools to shift from a reactive, or auto-pilot mode, to a wiser more mature version of yourself. This shift allows you to relate to yourself and others in more productive ways, improving your personal and professional relationships. Participants walk away with useful skills to put into practice right away.
