Emotional Intelligence is a set of emotional and social skills which include the ability to recognise and manage your own emotions, and recognise and influence the emotions of others. Part of Emotional Intelligence is to use that emotional information to more effectively guide your thinking and behaviour, to better cope with challenge, and to express emotions in a way that builds and maintains healthy relationships.
Having high Emotional Intelligence includes utilising techniques to identify and safely manage a range of emotions and strategies to more optimistically approach change, set-backs and adversity.
This workshop focuses on some skills you can employ to reframe your own thinking (and encourage others to reframe their thinking) in a more optimistic light.

- apply a more optimistic thinking approach to challenges.
- Self-awareness about one’s feelings and identifying the causes, activators and triggers
- Personal ways to communicate feelings to minimise misunderstanding or create a negative reaction in others
- Personal default ways of viewing issues and problems
- Potential areas of pessimism
- New language and approaches for reframing difficulties and challenges
