This minor program will cover the final three emotional intelligence competencies from the EQ-i 2.0® model - flexibility, stress tolerance and optimism. All three work together cohesively to create more effective stress management practices while managing and controlling your emotions in challenging situations. Having strong stress management is the ability to easily adapt when the situation is unfamiliar and unpredictable.
Being flexible in these situations means you are able to deal effectively and appropriately with the emotions you are feeling when faced with change. This helps you step out of your comfort zone, and excel in stressful situations. Your flexibility directly impacts your stress tolerance and optimism which are key competencies that are apart of the foundational leadership capabilities of insight and innovation.
