Resilience is the psychological quality that allows some people to be knocked down by adversities and come back at least as strong as before, if not stronger. Rather than letting difficulties or failures overcome them and drain their resolve, highly resilient people find a way to heal, change course and continue moving forward.

In this one-day class you will explore the different types of resiliency and the three elements of learned optimism. You will discover what creates resilience and how you can most effectively build this quality within yourself.

From there you will turn your focus to emotional intelligence and explore how smart you are at reading and working with emotions - yours first, and then emotions of other people. Emotional intelligence is defined as a set of emotional and social skills that:

  • influence the way we perceive and express ourselves
  • develop and maintain social relationships
  • cope with challenges and deal with stress

Prior to the class, you will take the Multi-Health Systems EQ-i 2.0 assessment., the premier emotional intelligence assessment. You will discover how you perceive yourself, express yourself, connect interpersonally, make decisions and manage stress. Since research suggests that emotional intelligence accounts for up to 45 percent of your success at work and in life, this course provides valuable - and actionable - insight.
