The skills involved in emotional intelligence are self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skills.

9/10/2021 - 11:00am to 2:30pm CDT

Given the basic premise that we can choose our thoughts, participants will learn how to identify and heal mistaken, fear-based beliefs and the feelings that result from them.
