Self- Awareness &


Social + Emotional Intelligence (S+EI) is a form of intelligence that drives our success in life and in our relationships with others. S+EI is about being aware of ourselves and others, in the moment, and using that awareness to manage ourselves (our behavior, our responses to stressful or challenging situations), and manage our relationships with others.

The truth is, the most successful people have the ability to manage themselves and manage their relationships with others. Unfortunately, we see it most when it’s lacking – think of someone who explodes when a deadline is missed, or the peer whom no one trusts. These people are limited by their lack of S+EI skills. The good news? S+EI can be learned and strengthened throughout our lives.

These workshop aims to create an awareness of S+EI and the impact it would have on the overall attitude, behaviour, personality and well-being.
