The concept of EI has been embraced by many educators and educational institutions, in the last 20 years, in the form of programmes and modules focusing on ‘social & emotional learning’ (SEL) skills.

Why EMIN?

Emotional Intelligence is widely recognized as fundamental ingredient for an individual and his/her interaction with others at personal and professional level. When it comes at any workplace, including an educational setting, it can be argued, that if an organization aims to lift itself from averagely successful to excellent it will largely depend on how well the people within the organization or business work together: this is the value of emotional intelligence in the workplace. More specifically, the concept of emotional intelligence at work is how people and relationships function as well as how important skills are demonstrated, such as leadership, teamwork, management skills and partnership. The inherent ingredients of emotional intelligence are founded on the basis of excellent practice and understanding of communication. Therefore, an organization which invests in the concept of emotional intelligence has staff who are motivated, productive, efficient and aligned with the goals and aspirations of the organization itself. The result of this is staff which is effective, confident in what they do and rewarded.
