Cutting edge behavioural science for real world applications

Emotional skills and competencies

This three-day core programme centred on cutting edge behavioural science, prepares people with the knowledge, skills and approaches to evaluate verbal and non-verbal communications from others. It covers the knowledge, understanding, skills and application of emotional competencies. The course is designed to help you become aware of your own emotions (before they get you into any trouble!).

 

Emotion timelineBased on Dr Ekman's science and leading edge training methodology you will use the emotional timeline from trigger... to impulse... to action to understand the challenges and skills around awareness through that process.

 

It will also develop your skills to enable you to read the true emotions in others to help you build and maintain constructive, successful relationships.

You will learn how to read facial expressions, plus the other four channels that we need to pay attention to in others if we really want to know what they are saying: body language, voice, verbal style and the actual words spoken/written. You will practice and hone those skills in a safe environment with a Paul Ekman International Approved Trainer.

The wide applications and benefits of this emotion based training are outlined by Dr Ekman as follows:

"In any transaction that matters whether it's between lovers, between parent and child, between salesman and client, between doctor and patient, between suspect and interrogator, between adversaries at an election, emotion is what we're looking for. Emotions tell us what matters." - Paul Ekman (www.bigthink.com/think-tank/lie-to-me)

 A graded Certificate of Competence will be awarded to you on completion.
