This webinar reviews the principles of emotional intelligence. The webinar facilitator provides reasons why it is beneficial to have students use high emotional intelligence skills throughout the community college curriculum and not just as part of psychology and other social science courses. Webinar participants learn about major emotional intelligence principles, why having high emotional intelligence skills is an important key to success in college and in life in general, and how much students can benefit from being encouraged to use emotional intelligence in all courses, including increasing pass rates and overall retention.
