Learning how to recognize our own emotions is an important step in building our self-awareness and becoming an emotionally intelligent person and an effective leader. Emotional intelligence helps us manage our emotions in positive ways to relieve stress, communicate effectively, empathize with others, overcome challenges and defuse conflict. As your self-awareness grows, you become able to notice emotions as they occur, allowing you to step back from it to provide you with the space you need to consider how to respond. A self-aware person is conscious of what they are feeling and can use their understanding of their emotion to change how they act. The EI class will focus on understanding what EI is as well as how to take steps to develop competencies that will help one be successful at work, at home and in the community.
