    What is this programme about?

    During times of uncertainty, we often resort to emotional habits that may – or may not – contribute to our wellbeing and growth. For continued emotional equilibrium, effectiveness and performance it is essential to self-regulate and develop a wide range of emotional responses. This is generally known as emotional intelligence or agility, which can be defined as an ability to perceive emotions in yourself and others, understand and manage them and use them proactively to generate desired outcomes.

    This programme will help you develop your emotional agility, starting with increased awareness, both of yourself and other people, and how you interact with others. You will learn techniques to expand your behavioural range and emotional “repertoire” in order to stay calm, focused and connected to other people and your values. Through exercises and immediately applicable practices you can cultivate more presence and strength without the need to control or supress your emotions.
