This course is the first in a series of four modules on Emotional Intelligence. Modules 2-4 each include a brief re-cap of the previous module so learners may choose to complete some or all of these modules based on their own personal and professional goals. The intent of this series is to provide physicians with a deeper level of understanding of emotional intelligence and how emotions can drive behavior and impact people both positively and negatively. Managing emotions (both your own and those around you) can be particularly important in many professional situations like giving and receiving feedback, meeting deadlines, dealing with challenging relationships (colleagues and patients), navigating organizational change, handling negotiations and disagreements, and working through setbacks and conflicts. This first module lays the groundwork, provides a basic overview of emotional intelligence and emphasizes key aspects of self-awareness, including the importance of building your own brand.
Course Objectives: As a result of participating in this activity, participants should be able to:
Gain a deeper understanding of emotional intelligence and its importance
Recognize the difference between Intrapersonal and Interpersonal skills
