Emotional Intelligence

“Emotional Intelligence succinctly explains how to deal with emotions creatively and employ our intelligence in a beneficial way.” –THE DALAI LAMA

Cardinal School District Superintendent and High School Principal Joel Pedersen was kind enough to visit our Management Team Meeting recently to discuss one of his favorite topics, Emotional Intelligence. This is the second presentation he’s made to FBG on this topic.

Emotional Intelligence (EI) is the ability to identify and manage your own emotions and the emotions of others. It is generally said to include two skills:

  • Emotional awareness: The ability to harness emotions and apply them to tasks like thinking and problem solving; and,
  • Emotional management: the ability to manage emotions, which includes regulating your own emotions and cheering up or calming down other people.

Thank you for spending time with us, Joel!
