Managers with high levels of emotional intelligence are able to support colleagues and their teams to work more effectively.
Emotional intelligence helps us make better choices; we can quickly evaluate a given situation and respond in a more constructive way, rather than simply reacting unconsciously, driven by our emotions. Often this presents situations escalating into conflict, and can improve working relationships through a better understanding of ourselves and others.
why come on the course?
- Do you want your managers to have a better understanding of what makes others react the way they do?
- Would you like some of your people to be less emotional in their responses at times?
- Do you wish your managers were better equipped to read and respond effectively to the emotions of others?
If you’ve answered yes to any of the above questions, then this course is for your school or college.
What is it?
This theatre based learning workshop will support delegates to understand emotional intelligence theory, how it relates to their working lives and how to anticipate the impact of emotions on those around them. Delegates will develop an understanding of why individuals react the way they do, especially in challenging situations, how this comes across to others and what they can do to enable more effective interactions.
What will I do on the day?
Through practical activities, observation of theatre based scenes, discussion and the opportunity to work with our actors in scenarios from their own experience, delegates will explore different techniques to help utilise emotional intelligence and have a better understanding of others’ behaviours.
embedding the learning.
We use theatre-based learning to demonstrate trigger responses in educational scenarios. Demonstrating how different approaches can result in more positive outcomes enables delegates to gain an in-depth understanding of emotional intelligence in a practical, relevant way that can be immediately applied.
By the end of this course, delegates will be able to:
- Utilise emotional intelligence to manage others more effectively.
- Recognise what is within their control and/or influence and how to react appropriately.
- Manage relationships and situations with a high level of emotional intelligence.
- Identify ways to continue to develop their self-awareness.
Some faq's about Emotional Intelligence .
0.1What is Theatre based learning?
Theatre Based Learning is the technique we use to bring learning to life by using our actors to perform scenarios, based on real case studies.
Theatre Based Learning can be either observational (where learners watch scenes and discuss) OR participative (where we use techniques like real-play and practice, forum where learners interact with the actors and direct them or hot-seating where learners give feedback to individual characters and make suggestions). This course uses our actors to both demonstrate presentation skills and often made mistakes and techniques with the ability for all learners to present and receive feedback
