Emotional Intelligence


I am looking for more interesting ways of presenting the concept of EQ i.e. not just a one-way 'tell'. Do you have suggestions as to how this can be made more interactive?

  1. We learn best by doing..
    Sharon, You’re right that “telling” gives the information but doesn’t allow for that info to “belong” to the learner. What about giving your group opportunities to try out what you “tell” them. Scenarios that they can discuss and relate to their learning; make suggestions as to how to apply the learning; even replay the scene and attempt to put ideas into practice – be the director. If proactive, they will have imbued the info much more deeply. If you would like to discuss it further, give me a ring. Erica 01235 850581

  2. NLP is the practical side of EQ
    EQ is about the theory, the need and nowadays about the testing (as IQ tests are to “intelligence). Those who have trained in various levels of NLP can demonstrate and teach EQ Course participants to change their emotional responses using different anchors, association/diasociation exercises. Using timelines can be very active when the timelines are put on the floor and walked along – and the monster stuff from the past (or future fear/anxiety) faced and eliminated. Use NLP in your EQ courses to see major changes take place e.g. smokers become non smokers, fear of lifts eliminated.
