Emotional Intelligence


Emotional Intelligence is the human ability to manage our own emotions and inner potential for positive relationships.
Understanding the emotions, learning how to deal with destructive emotions and developing strategies for developing our good qualities and improving our relationships with others, has become an acknowledged essential skill to living. Now being widely taught in schools within Social and Emotional Resilience in Education, Emotional Intelligence is a powerful Mind Training tool applicable to all ages.

Background to Emotional Intelligence

Emotional awareness has its roots in the mindfulness tradition that goes back thousands of years. It has only been identified as a discreet mind training tool in the 20th Century and since Daniel Goleman popularly invented the term, it has become a universally accepted way of describing the management of our emotions.

“What can we change that will help our children fare better in life? What factors are at play, for example, when people of high IQ flounder and those of modest IQ do surprisingly well? I would argue that the difference quite often lies in the abilities called here emotional intelligence, which include self-control, zeal and persistence, and the ability to motivate oneself. And these skills, as we shall see, can be taught to children.”

Daniel Goleman, Emotional Intelligence (1996)
