Emotional Intelligence

Media Type - Game

Introduces an increasingly important topic that underpins good interpersonal skills and good team skills.

The Activity
In this fun, short board game participants find out exactly what emotional intelligence is and why it is important. Do they show emotional maturity in the way they handle the given situations? How do they respond to the set of key questions? How will they contribute to the discussion? Emotional intelligence (EI) is all about selfawareness, self-restraint, empathy, self-esteem and social skills. It’s all about controlling emotions rather than giving in to them. To avoid conflict at work and to ensure a positive and rewarding work environment staff need to have (and understand) what EI is all about. It is said that those who possess EI are more likely to succeed than those who can demonstrate a high IQ.
