About emotions

 This course is about emotions – feeling, recognising and managing emotions in ourselves and others.

Emotions are part of being human. We think and we feel…and we act.
Emotions are what power our actions, they give us passion, motivation and energy,  they give us the energy and focus to decide and act.
We all want a happy and secure emotional life and in business, research has shown emotional intelligence is crucial for success.

Emotions are wonderful – and they can get us into trouble. They can overpower us and sweep us away.

When we do not recognise and  manage our own emotions, we can act impulsively and put work and relationships at risk.
When we do not recognise and manage other people’s emotions the same can happen.

In this program you will find the emotional intelligence and awareness to appreciate and manage our own emotions, and manage other peoples’ emotions.

Emotional intelligence

The importance of emotional intelligence But how do you use it to make a difference?
You need emotional competence – how to work with emotions.
This is Paul Ekman’s unique contribution.

Perceiving emotions – the ability to detect and decipher emotions—including the ability to identify one’s own emotions. Without this you cannot go further.

Using emotions – the ability to harness emotions to help thinking and problem solving. Understanding emotions.

Managing emotions – the ability to regulate emotions in both ourselves and in others (even negative ones).
This program will help you in all these areas.
