Emotional WHAT? The Powerful Science of Emotional Intelligence
Tuesday, February 22, 2011 from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM (MST)
We’ve all experienced that emotions can push people to make terrible decisions – but that doesn’t mean emotions are “bad.” It means we haven’t been smart with our feelings. Understanding the science of emotion offers important insight; the neurobiological basis of emotion provides invaluable insight to help us be smarter with feelings in our relationships, at work, as parents, and in our daily lives.
Research shows that people who develop these skills are more effective and successful. Students with more EQ skills have better behavior, earn higher grades, and have more friends. Adults with these skills advance in their careers, make better decisions, and have stronger relationships. So EQ has significant value -- but what is emotional intelligence?
