About the Course
Emotional Intelligence is a type of intelligence where the focus is on the ability to read the emotions of others, while we understand, use and regulate our own emotions. This type of intelligence has been found to improve our job performance, allows better teaming with others, helps with stress reduction and is linked to greater mental health.
In a post-pandemic Educational environment, empowering school staff with this type of intelligence is an imperative. To maintain a competitive advantage and ensure our students are adequately supported, it is paramount that school staff get the tools and support they need to continue to be productive at work while their psychological, emotional and social wellness is under attack.
