Emotional Agility (or intelligence) is the ability to identify and manage your own emotions and the emotions of others. It is generally said to include three skills:
Emotional awareness, including the ability to identify your own emotions and those of others;
- The ability to harness emotions and apply them to tasks like thinking and problem solving;
- The ability to manage emotions, including the ability to regulate your own emotions, and the ability to cheer up or calm down another person.
- This workshop touches on the core factors of emotional intelligence to build knowledge and understanding and then looks at how this understanding and knowledge can be used practically back in the workplace.

Presenter: Dr. Paul Wood
“This course was delightful and amazing. Dr Paul Wood is brilliant. Funny, bright, methodical in his teaching practice and ready to respond to his students’ queries and ideas. He is clearly so passionate about this work and committed to modelling it as well as teaching it. I have a PhD in Communications and facilitate and lecture regularly myself, so I’m pretty critical of workshops and how they’re run. In this case, I loved this course so much. It actually is the best course I’ve ever been on.”
