Tapping the Power of Emotional and Social Intelligence in Relationships

This interactive workshop is designed to expose participants to the basic components of emotional and social intelligence and then apply them in practical ways to workplace, family and social settings. Emotional intelligence (EI) is the ability to understand your own emotions and appropriately respond to the emotional expressions of those around you. Social intelligence (SI) takes EI further by emphasizing the ability to get along well with others by increasing knowledge of interaction strategies. Particular emphasis will be placed on the appropriate use of empathy, perspective taking, listening skills and expressing one’s own emotional condition appropriately to others.

  • Describe the four key emotional skills: identifying, leveraging, understanding and managing emotions
  • Examine emotional expressions and underlying messages that enable us to read people more accurately
  • Identify specific behaviors that allow us to manage emotions effectively
