Psychologist Daniel Goleman, one of the first people to raise awareness of emotional intelligence estimates that at best IQ makes up only 20 percent of the factors that determine life success, while other forces, such as emotional intelligence, temperament, family education levels make up the balance.

As students begin to walk the walk of their teen years, they are regularly faced with the pressures of becoming a young adult. This walk comes with pitfalls, emotions, difficulty, choices, decisions, victories, defeats, influences, and so many other life variables like isolation and poor self-worth. Young adults must navigate through these things and come out victorious on the other side. Young adults need to know how to navigate and not be too overwhelmed and fall into a state of anxiety. Learning about emotional intelligence is a powerful way for young adults to face life head-on and walk in their full potential. Learning emotional intelligence is a great navigation tool.

Emotional intelligence involves a set of skills that help us perceive, understand and manage emotions, both within ourselves and in others. Everyone has emotions. It’s a simple fact – a part of our being human. And whether we realise it or not, these emotions impact us every day. They also impact those around us, both at school and in our personal lives. Emotions impact the way we think, learn, teach, lead, collaborate, and problem solve.

At Power Profiles, we have a workshop that will provide students with insight into how important it is that they demonstrate emotionally intelligent behaviour. Students will also get an insight into how well they currently demonstrate emotionally intelligent behaviour. They will get practical tips on how to obtain additional feedback from others on their emotional intelligence and how to effectively respond to it.

In our emotional intelligence school program, students will learn about the six emotional intelligence competencies, namely:

✓ Self-Awareness. Self-Awareness is about being aware of the way you feel and the impact your feelings can have on your decisions, behaviours and performance.
✓ Awareness of Others. Awareness of others is about perceiving, understanding, and acknowledging the way others feel.
✓ Authenticity. Authenticity is about openly and effectively expressing oneself, honouring commitments and encouraging this behaviour in others.
✓ Emotional Reasoning. Emotional Reasoning is about using the information in feelings (from oneself and others) and combining it with other facts and information when decision-making.
✓ Self-Management. Self-Management is about managing one’s own mood and emotions; time and behaviour; and continuously improving oneself.
✓ Positive Influence. Positive influence is about positively influencing the way others feel through problem-solving, providing feedback and recognising and supporting others’ work.
