Emotional intelligence is the ability to understand, use and manage your own emotions in positive ways to relieve stress, communicate effectively, empathize with others, overcome challenges and defuse conflict. Therefore, helping youth be become more confident and resourceful as they step into future leadership roles.
In this series of four classes, youth will learn that “We are NEVER upset for the reason we think” AND exploring any loss of peace, mild irritation to massive breakdown is an opportunity to grow and become resourceful.
Youth will learn how to apply a 6-Step process called Transformative Language of Connection (T.L.C.) to shift from their LEFT (cognitive) brain to the RIGHT (creative) brain, using colourful resources to identify observations, feelings, body sensations and universal desires. As well as learning a daily habit to help them decompress emotional buildup to reduce stress AND identify empowering action steps.
Over the past decade technology has become a powerful tool for communication, it’s also became the main source of numbing and avoidance. Leaders of the future will highly rely on their ability to self regulate their emotions and access creativity to become innovators. Our future relies on the youth to being emotionally intelligent.
Don't see a time that's fits? Request for a time
Is your teenager spending a lot of hours in front of the computer/on their phone? Do you seem to have more arguments than conversations with your teen?
You are not alone!
Teens are overwhelmed by all the stimulus from the internet and rely heavily on LIKES from social media to make them feel like they matter. A slippery slope when our future leaders give away their power to external sources to make them feel better. Your teen is incredibly capable and resourceful BUT they will have to learn emotional intelligence to become confident in their own abilities.
When I was 14 years old I was given a monthly bus pass to get school. I had taken the bus a couple of times yet always felt nervousness around possibly missing the bus. One day approaching the bus stop I noticed the bus was early! Feeling frantic, I stared to run...the bus left without me!!! I hated feeling so dependant on the bus. Deciding to walk to school I was surprised to realize had I arrived before the bus!
What a feeling of empowerment. Not only did I get to school by myself, I was also on time!
That night I proudly shared what had happened with my dad and asked him if I could have the bus money and walk to school instead. My confidence grew AND I was able to buy my favourite pair of shoes!
That day my feelings taught me how important it was to be autonomous. I learned that taking action felt way more empowering than blaming the bus driver for being early.
If you would like your teens to take guidance from their emotions to become empowered, responsible adults then I highly recommend this series of classes. Register today!
