While a student’s IQ is important in achieving success early on, emotional intelligence (EQ) becomes increasingly more important as a student gets older to reach their full potential. As much as 80% of adult “success” comes from EQ, which plays a key factor into obtaining top managerial and executive jobs. This seminar will dive into what EQ is and how it can positively impact students by identifying the right motivational factors to study, work and live. It will also address the growing problem cited by a recent Yale survey of 22,000 high school students that shows as many as 75% feel mostly negative emotions such as feeling tired, stress and boredom, which often carries into adulthood. Understanding the importance of emotional intelligence is the first step in experiencing meaningful work, relationships and living purposefully.

The seminar will cover the following topics:

  1. Importance of self-awareness
  2. Difference between extrinsic and intrinsic motivators
  3. Mapping your emotions
  4. How healthy values drive success
