Explore how emotional intelligence is a foundation for managing our emotions, ourselves and our relationships. 

Using practical experiences, you will develop awareness and skills to build:

  • Self awareness: identifying with the state and size of your own cups for wellbeing, using the Phoenix Cups Framework ©
  • Self awareness: identifying your emotional responses, triggers and reactions
  • Self management: discovering the impact of our emotions on others
  • Empathy: considering skills to better understand others for improved interpersonal relationships
  • Social relationships: learning ways to develop emotional intelligence in others

Development of emotional intelligence therefore positively influences personal wellbeing and healthy relationships.
