Emotional Intelligence theories - Daniel Goleman's EQ concepts This webpage is a new format for mobile/small screens. Please send your feedback if it fails to operate well. Thanks. emotional intelligence theory (EQ - Emotional Quotient) Emotional Intelligence - EQ - is a relatively recent behavioural model, rising to prominence with Daniel Goleman's 1995 Book called 'Emotional Intelligence'. The early Emotional Intelligence theory was originally developed during the 1970s and 80s by the work and writings of psychologists Howard Gardner (Harvard), Peter Salovey (Yale) and John 'Jack' Mayer (New Hampshire). Emotional Intelligence links strongly with concepts of love and spirituality: bringing compassion and humanity to work, and also to 'Multiple Intelligence' theory which illustrates and measures the range of capabilities people possess, and the fact that everybody has a value. The EQ concept argues that IQ, or conventional intelligence, is too narrow; that there are wider areas of Emotional Intelligence that dictate and enable how successful we are.

How Adults Learn :: Ageless Learner In order to learn through life, it’s helpful to understand something about how you learn. The following backgrounder will introduce you to the most significant things we know about how adults learn. Overview of adult learning theoryBooks about how adults learnLinks to other websites about how adults learnMore resource about adult learning Overview of Adult Learning Theory Learning can be defined formally as the act, process, or experience of gaining knowledge or skills. Learning strengthens the brain by building new pathways and increasing connections that we can rely on when we want to learn more. Physiologically, learning is the formation of cell assemblies and phase sequences. At the neurological level, any established knowledge (from experience and background) appears to be made up of exceedingly intricate arrangements of cell materials, electrical charges, and chemical elements. Remarkably, people can learn from the moment of birth. Another “Ah-ha!”? Harold D.

Why Your Business Should Consider Reverse Mentorship This post originally appeared on the American Express OPEN Forum, where Mashable regularly contributes articles about leveraging social media and technology in small business. The word "mentorship" usually evokes imagery of an older, more experienced individual imparting knowledge and know-how upon a younger, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed individual — that's the traditional use of the word that we've all come to know and accept. Alexa Scordato, however, is turning that word on its head with a concept she calls reverse mentorship. Scordato currently serves as the community manager at 2tor, an education technology startup. Fresh out of college, though, she first started her career as an executive assistant at Mzinga, a social software company, where she and Chairman and CEO Barry Libert took part in a reverse mentorship. While reverse mentorship may be a concept that's been in practice for a while, we really like Scordato's take on the subject. There Are Knowledge Gaps on Both Sides
Do You Know Your Middle Schooler's Learning Style? Almost two decades after Howard Gardner identified multiple intelligences in his ground-breaking book Frames of Mind (1983), educators around the world are using the theory of multiple intelligences in their classrooms. In some ways, parents and teachers have always intuitively known that children learn in different ways and that an activity that grabs one child may not be of interest to another youngster. But many of our traditional ideas about teaching imply that there is a certain way to learn particular skills. As parents, we've all had times when we've become frustrated by our children's apparent inability to accomplish a task the way we were taught to do it. The eight intelligences are: To understand your child's learning style, observe her as she plays. Most children have a number of different intelligences and learning styles and can be engaged in a variety of ways. Respecting individual intelligences and learning styles means offering your child a variety of ways to learn.

Published in CHADD's ATTENTION Magazine, February 2008; updated in 2011.

If your child selected mostly auditory learning statements, he is good at absorbing information from spoken words and may understand instructions better if they are read aloud.
