Emotional Intelligence – the ability to perceive, use, understand and manage emotions – is increasingly regarded as a plus in a teacher’s qualifications, the recovery from the harm caused by the Covid-19 pandemic to the well-being of the educational community has made it critically important.

The “Search Inside Yourself” programme covers the essentials of Emotional Intelligence. It was developed and tested at Google with the support of leading experts in neuroscience, and will be delivered by facilitators certified by the SIY Leadership Institute, an independent non-profit organization.

You believe that the ability to constructively manage your emotions is paramount to your success as an educator and a leader. You strive to align your values with your work and to be authentic and empathetic in your rapport with young people and other adults. You would welcome an opportunity to develop your emotional self-awareness, your empathy and your mindfulness.

At the end of this programme, you will have developed reliable approaches to improve your intrapersonal and interpersonal skills, including self-awareness and concentration, self-management, empathy and mindful communication, as well as stress management and resilience.
