Want to get better at noticing and managing stress? Or responding thoughtfully rather than reacting emotionally? Or better manage the overwhelm from everything that is happening around us? Then you would be interested in Emotional Intelligence.

It is a key skill in fulfillment and resilience, and could not be more helpful right now. Most of the session will be spent in conversation, so come excited to engage with your top questions.
