Understanding emotional intelligence for teachers.

Understanding emotional intelligence for teachers.

What is all the fuss about emotional intelligence? What is it exactly? What good is it in a school? Learn what emotional intelligence is and isn't and find out why all seven dimensions of EI really matter for teachers. 

The business case for emotional intelligence is now firmly established - even to the point of research proving that those with higher levels of emotional intelligence earn more money, have less absenteeism and cope better with organisational stress. How good would that be in your school?

What this emotional intelligence live tele-class for teachers will cover:

  • What is emotional intelligence exactly?
  • Understanding the emotional drivers of behaviour and why people behave in the way they do.
  • Cutting through the myths and hype - understanding what emotional intelligence isn't.
  • The seven dimensions of emotional intelligence and how they impact on staff room interactions.
  • The pioneering work of Mayer and Salovey - the leading researchers into emotional intelligence - and why it's important in schools.
  • Understanding why people may not act on information you give them, whether children, teachers, staff or parents.
  • How to measure emotional intelligence - what assessments are available for children and teachers.
  • What benefits can higher levels of emotional intelligence bring to a school, your teachers and your children.
  • How emotional intelligence can help reduce bullying in schools.

Available for individual schools and teacher groups by request

Delivered excellent content

This was the first webinar/tele-class I've attended. It was easy and a really convenient way to receive training - all in the comfort of my dining room! Rachel delivered excellent content and had plenty of great practical examples. I thoroughly recommend this type of training.

I would recommend Rachel's live tele-classes to anyone

Rachel's presentation was short, sharp and to the point; and I was able to take away so much from it, even though we only had an hour. I would recommend Rachel's live tele-classes to anyone wanting to acquire new skills, brush-up on old ones or discover something about themselves.

Received a very pleasant surprise!

Everyone who gave feedback found the presentation helpful and enjoyable. One staff member confessed to expecting to be “bored to tears” and received a very pleasant surprise! You may also like to know that even 5 weeks later staff are remembering and reminding each other of some of the things you said.

Enormously beneficial

Just want to let you know how much I enjoyed the live tele-class on emotional intelligence last week. I found it really easy to follow and I could ask questions via the chat box. The information you gave us is enormously beneficial.

How amazing!

It was wonderful and fun to work with you. You'll be pleased to know that this week is orientation week and the staff have been practising what you taught and we've had positive feedback! How amazing is that! Many thanks.
