Schools focusing purely on academics to measure student success create a high-stress environment in which students fail to learn essential life skills. Studies have found that Emotional Intelligence (EQ) skills outweigh IQ.
EQ helps students become better at identifying their emotions, working well with others, focus on their tasks and improve academic performance.
Research has shown that schools that build up their children’s emotional intelligence skills enjoy improved academic performance and a positive school environment.
EQ is what helps develop successful, well-adjusted confident adults who can build healthy relationships and achieve goals in life.
EQ Training for Students
The EQ training for students helps students identify and manage their feelings and deal with them in a healthy manner. It makes them sensitive to their peers’ feelings and stay calm under stress or pressure.
We deliver the training in a student-friendly format – which is easy to understand and implement. The training delivers practical tips that students can apply immediately.
Customised training sessions for students
We conduct sessions during term time, and training is customised to your school’s objectives. Contact EQ Academy for more information.
