The expectation has long been that if you have a high IQ, achieve good grades, go to college, and demonstrate skills in your workplace, you are well on your way towards personal, career. and financial success.
However, with the changing environments and markets of an increasingly globalized economy, the impact on work practices by new technologies and new methods of manufacturing goods and providing services, there is an increased emphasis on other aspects of the working environment, such as physical safety, emotional well being, equality and diversity issues, and the personal and career needs of both students and educators, all requiring a different way of thinking about the quality and standards of the emotional learning elements needed to guide us along the student/career path.
Interdisciplinary research and studies from education, business, psychology, and behavioral medicine are showing clear and significant contributions of emotional intelligence to human performance, personal health, and resilience.
How can you provide such skills and knowledge to your teachers–or directly to your students?
