Course Description

IN PERSON: How is our emotional intelligence related to satisfying conversations and relationship development? Each student will begin by establishing an understanding of their own communication and learning style preferences using a sensory preference assessment tool and a communication style assessment. Students will be introduced to the five characteristics of emotional intelligence and have an opportunity to develop skills in each area. While our intelligence quotient is stable throughout our lives, emotional intelligence is a skill that can be learned. Having high emotional intelligence has been shown to be even more important to life satisfaction and success than having high intelligence. This entertaining and informative lecture-based course will provide insight and knowledge on identifying high and low emotional intelligence and how to improve yours. Students will also spend time engaged in conversation with each other with the goal of developing their emotional intelligence. | Lecture + Q&A, Facilitated discussion.
