We keep posting about emotional intelligence - but what exactly is it?
We can define it as the ability to recognise, understand & manage our own emotions and recognise, understand & influence the emotions of others. In practical terms, this means being aware that emotions can drive our behaviour and impact people (positively and negatively), and learning how to manage those emotions – both our own and others – especially when we are under pressure.
Alongside the emphasis on emotion is the knowledge that to be emotionally intelligent we need to have: self-awareness, emotional control, self-motivation, empathy and relationship skills. It is a gateway to better learning, friendships, academic success and employment.
We, at Rainbow Education Group, passionately believe that the starting point to developing Emotional Intelligence is self-awareness. We facilitate this through the use of Insights Discovery profiling - enabling individuals to understand themselves better & then encouraging them to appreciate and celebrate the strengths others have.
The most exciting bit of all this? Not only do we support adults on their learning journey BUT we are able to offer this self-awareness to the next generation - developing our Young Adults & giving them the insight to realise that success is NOT all about academic intelligence - in fact success is dependant on understanding themselves & others.
To find out more please contact us - everything we do is driven by the passion to facilitate self-discovery.
