Emotional intelligence (EI) refers to the ability to perceive, control, and evaluate emotions.
Researchers now suggest that emotional intelligence can be learned and strengthened.
While the ability to express and control emotions is essential, the ability to understand, interpret, and respond to the emotions of others is of equal importance.
WE’LL LEARN ABOUT: The four different levels of emotional intelligence: emotional perception, the ability to reason using emotions, the ability to understand emotions, and the ability to manage emotions.
It’s been my privilege to work closely with Dr. Coleman since November 2019.
I have a degree in education, a certificate in Positive Psychology / Core Coaching from San Francisco State University, and participate continually in ongoing personal development programs.
My professional experience includes principal of a private elementary school, director of two international English language institutes, Human Resource Manager, owner of an independent, boutique staffing company, and social media solopreneur (speaker, trainer, private instruction, and account management).
I created and administer Dr. Coleman’s private Facebook group now numbering over 1400+ members, facilitate several support groups, and present the “Strategies for Living With The Pain Of Estrangement” webinars.
I present the five-session Facilitator Training program, and compiled the accompanying Facilitator Manual.
As a coach for Parents/Grandparents of Estranged Children (certified by Dr. Coleman), I work with individuals one-on-one with a coaching philosophy of "Accountability and Commitment."
I live in Los Gatos, California, and have 3 daughters and seven precious grandchildren.
Most importantly, I care about empowering you to radically accept your circumstances
with self-compassion,and mindfully live a strong, meaningful, valuable life.
