Emotional intelligence is a set of emotional and social skills that collectively establish how well we perceive and express ourselves, develop and maintain social relationships, cope with challenges, and use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way.

Managing our emotions is key to success in every area of our lives, from the daily interactions within a family to the ability of a leader to get the best out of his or her team.

These skills, which form the building blocks of abilities such as communication, discipline, resilience, and social awareness, can be taught and enhanced, leading to increased job competency, productivity, academic performance, and other measures of success.

To learn more, register for the Emotional Skills workshop offered to faculty and staff by Learning and Development on Thursday, Sept. 21, at Johns Hopkins at Eastern.
