week 1: Self Awareness
The first week, consisting of two 60 minute sessions, focuses on developing self-awareness with regard to one's emotional profile. We look at the 5 steps in how our emotions start and how they lead to behaviour and consequences. We then identify the stimulus for each emotional response identified as problematic or beneficial.
week 2: Emotional Perception
The second week focuses on how we perceive the emotions of others. Here we look at the benefits of identifying emotional states and triggers in colleagues, teammates or family members. This skills is highly beneficial in mitigating conflict, understanding the emotional energy in a room and adapting our behaviour to be more fitting in these situations.
week 3: Emotional Management
the emotional management week leads on from week 2, in that we now develop the skills to not only perceive the emotions of others but also to manage the emotions of others. Emotional management refers to managing and influencing the emotions of those around us. This is highly beneficial in leadership, group work and in careers such as sales.
week 4: Emotional Expression
The last week focuses on developing the ability to effectively express our emotions. The focus in this week is to learn how to communicate effectively, share our feelings effectively and mitigate conflict. We then cover the ability to communicate based on the emotional state of others in the conversation and reaching solutions that best fit everyone, regardless of the situation.
