Healthy workplace and emotionally healthy communities are more happier and more productive as they learn to balance their emotional selves. Social + Emotional Intelligence (SEI) is a form of intelligence that drives our success in work and in life and in our relationships with others. SEI is about being aware of ourselves and others, in the moment, and using that awareness to manage ourselves (our behavior, our responses to stressful or challenging situations), and manage our relationships with others. We have certain behavioral preferences and a person exists within a certain environment. Our behavior is driven by both the environment and by our personality, but unlike our genetics and our personality, our behavior can change, and we are the ones who can change our behavior.
The aim of this session was to give you an understanding of the ability to be aware of our own emotions and those of others and to use that information to manage ourselves and manage our relationships with others in an attempt to be good educators.
