Cultivate Emotional Intelligence (EQ) Inner Strength

About

Is a more holistic approach to Emotional Intelligence (EQ) designed for Parents and Teens to better understand the inner workings of their minds. Emotional intelligence describes the ability to understand and manage one’s own feelings and emotions, providing great insight into how this emotion dictates behavioral patterns and motivation.

We are very familiar with “IQ,” which stands for “intellectual quotient” it refers to how someone may perform academically. However, IQ is ONLY one measure of our abilities. It does not encompass all our potential. 

The reality is that there are many other types of intelligence besides our intellect. For instance, Spatial Intelligence (SP) or Special Memory (SM) is the ability one has to think in 3D; architects, engineers, and individuals dedicated to the construction industry usually have a high SI or SM.  The ability to play music, recognize rhythm and tones belongs to Musical intelligence (MS). Other individuals have other types of intelligence; for instance, artists have a specific sensitivity to beauty and what beauty means, and they can express it through different media. Athletic and mechanical abilities are other types of intelligence.

However, our culture worships intellectual intelligence (IQ), and it does not necessarily dedicate as much time to cultivate other types of critical intelligence(s), such as Emotional Intelligence (EQ or EI).

What Is Emotional Intelligence?

Emotional intelligence is the ability to understand, use, and manage our emotions. It is sometimes called EQ (or EI) for short. Just as a high IQ can predict top test scores, a high EQ can predict success in social settings and emotional situations. EQ helps us build strong relationships, make good decisions, and deal with difficult situations. In fact, some studies show that EQ is more important than IQ when it comes to being successful in school, at work, or having a more fulfilling life. 

Program Benefits:

Become Aware of Your Emotions

You will learn to recognize your emotions and emotional state.   We experience many different emotions throughout the day. At one moment, we could feel sad, and in a few minutes, we can be experiencing content or happiness. Others’ emotional state will take longer to overcome, like anger.  Being able to notice and accurately label our feelings and emotions is critical to learn how to manage our feelings and emotional state.

Understand Human Needs

Getting to know the six human needs is a fantastic tool to understand yourself, your fears, motivations, and finally, what’s driving you subconsciously to do anything in life. This tool will help you understating yourself and others better and any hidden motivation behind everything we do, without judgment. The understanding of human needs will give you great insight and power to create meaningful relationships with yourself and others. EQ teaches us to listen and pay attention to other’s people’s feelings, behavior, and words they are using to understand where they are coming from and how they might feel in certain situations and react accordingly.

Self-Empowerment and Self-Regulation

This is the ability to understand our triggers and to manage our emotional reactions when facing challenging situations. Empowering yourself to understand who you are and what you really want in life is key to fulfillment and create inner strength and resilience.

Cultivate Self-Love and Forgiveness

The ability to express feelings and emotions to learn from them and being able to release guilt, resentment, self-hatred is critical when cultivating self-love and self-care. As we do that, we learn to be more compassionate toward ourselves and others.

Learn to Choose Better Emotions

EQ teaches us to manage our emotional state and moods, and the ability to decide how we want to feel. Moods are temporary emotional states, EQ gives us back the power to decide what mood is right for a particular situation or experience. Individuals with a healthy EQ understand that an emotional state is created when the body discharges a particular chemical, creating what is called healthy or unhealthy biochemistry. Therefore, the individual can develop the ability to develop healthier biochemistry that produces more fulfillment and happiness rather than sadness or anger.

Develop a Healthier EQ

We can all work to build even stronger emotional intelligence skills just by recognizing what we feel, understanding how we got there, understanding how others feel and why, and putting our emotions into heartfelt words when we need to. For example, recognizing emotions seems easy once we know what to pay attention to. But the EQ skill of managing emotional reactions and choosing a mood might seem harder to master. That’s because the part of the brain that’s responsible for self-management continues to mature beyond our teen years. We must teach the body new biochemistry, and practice helps those brain pathways develop.
