EQ for young adults in school  As learners 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 and 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 top overwhelmed and fall in to sate 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.

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

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 realize 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.

In our EQ school program, learners will learn about the six EQ 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.
