Big picture thinking can benefit any person in any profession. It brings "wholeness" and maturity to a person's thinking and it is inspired by open-mindedness and creativity. When a person is able to think outside the limits of their own mind, the world becomes a much bigger and brighter place. Learn the reasons and the techniques for nurturing big picture thinking in yourself, and begin exploring thinking that allows you to approach problems and embrace opportunities in ways that are “outside your proverbial box”.

Emotional Intelligence

Emotional Intelligence is our mind’s ability to perceive, manage, and express our emotions effectively. It allows us to regulate our feelings and use them to guide our actions. While some people are naturally more attuned to their feelings and the feelings of others, some people may need help to understand and build their emotional skills. By becoming knowledgeable and confident in the awareness and management of emotions, we are able to sustain our relationships both personally and professionally. In this training you will learn the origins and the Goleman framework for emotional intelligence, you will assess your own personal emotional intelligence, and explore ways to strengthen your emotional intelligence for a more fulfilling and happier life.
