Grace Lab - Emotional Intelligence 101 with Makenzie Chilton

  • Roper Greyell 745 Thurlow Street, 25th floor Vancouver Canada (map)

Emotional Intelligence 101 - OPEN TO ALL HUMANS

Emotional Intelligence is the ability to monitor one’s own emotions and helps inform us how to better understand others' emotions. This workshop will give you the tools necessary to access emotional information that can guide our thinking, behaviours, and decision making. Empathy is most commonly associated with Emotional Intelligence, and although it is a factor, it is just one component of the overall assessment of Emotional Intelligence.

A review published in the Journal of Annual Psychology found that higher Emotional Intelligence is positively correlated with:

  1. Better social relations for children

  2. Better social relations for adults

  3. Highly emotionally intelligent individuals are perceived more positively by others

  4. Better family and intimate relationships

  5. Better academic achievement

  6. Better social relations during work performance and in negotiations

  7. Better psychological well-being

  8. Allows for self-compassion

Join Makenzie Chilton from Love Your Mondays for an in-depth learning experience of Emotional Intelligence - a fun and interactive workshop with practical takeaways for implementation.

In this workshop we will cover:

  • the three main models of Emotional Intelligence

  • the EI assessment considered to be the most scientific

  • the major components that make up Emotional Intelligence: self-perception, self-expression, interpersonal, decision making and stress management

  • how to use Emotional Intelligence in your daily life to enhance your overall well-being

Who this workshop is for: HR professionals, Management and Executive level professionals, anyone interested in improving professional and personal relationships. All humans are welcome!
