The concept of Emotional Intelligence is not new, and as far back as in the 1930s Thorndike was describing social intelligence as the ability to get along with other people.  In 1987, Keith Beasley coined the term, emotional quotient and began to explore measuring the EQ.  In 1985, Wayne Payne introduced the term emotional intelligence as it related to fear, pain and desire and its application for problem-solving. In 1995, Daniel Goleman brought worldwide attention to the concepts of emotional intelligence and began the discussion on ways in which EQ can matter more than IQ.  There is ongoing debate as to whether or not EQ may be even more significant and important than IQ.  Some view emotional intelligence as an array of non-cognitive capabilities, competencies, and skills that influence one’s ability to succeed in coping with environmental demands and pressures (Reuven Bar-On).  Emotions are described as involving the subjective experience, the physiological response, and the behavioral response.  We will examine and challenge old views of EI to explore how the skills of EI are closely linked to cognition, and how they can be taught and learned.  In this course, you will learn the four factors of emotional intelligence along with the five key components, and explore ways in which we can measure, develop EI skills, and apply them to your coaching practice.  The integration of SEI in you coaching practice will allow you to assist your clients in developing increased self-awareness and self-management.  Through improvements in insight and self-control, your clients can learn to exercise choice at a heightened level.  By gaining a deeper level of understanding, and the ability to access critical and creative thinking your clients will demonstrate positive outcomes in their professional and personal lives.  Begin today and learn how utilizing SEI in your coaching can improve your practice!
