Emotional intelligence is the capacity to know one’s own emotions and to effectively manage and express them. Interpersonally, emotional intelligence allows you to tune into another’s experience and handle relationships with authenticity and finesse. Developing strong emotional intelligence can enrich your relationship with your work, other people, and even yourself.
Do you often repeat destructive thought patterns, like comparing yourself to others, playing out worst-case scenarios, or fixating on how you could have done better? Do you ever notice yourself acting with great maturity and wisdom in some situations, and then just an hour or day later you find yourself defensive, reactive, or judgmental? Learning to reliably engage with people and situations from the most emotionally intelligent space in you can help.
In this mindfulness-based workshop, psychologist 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. Learn to shift from a reactive or auto-pilot mode to operate from wiser version of yourself in your toughest moments. Walk away from this three-hour evening workshop with useful skills to put into practice right away.
