A Creative Approach to Emotional Intelligence

Monday, March 6

Hilton Austin Downtown - Salon A

Since character is destiny and healthy relating is key to success, the time to focus on wisdom in education is here. But how? How do we teach "squishy" knowledge like emotional literacy, empathy, kindness, authentic communication? One answer: Design, Visual and Game Thinking + Compassion and Self-Awareness Techniques. We've built creative tools to help people learn not just the facts and figures but to better navigate the internal world and, as a result, the external. Our tools are mashed-up ancient wisdom and self-compassion techniques useful in any class - powerful hacks to open the heart, ease the mind and help students and teachers build a better destiny for themselves and for the world.
