Living Courage #2 – How to Master Emotional Intelligence
Emotional Intelligence has been shown to be the leading predictor for financial success and health, and the single biggest predictor of performance in the workplace.
There can be a stigma around emotions. We swing from “suck it up” to “You’re too emotional!” Emotions won’t kill us but not feeling them will. Our fear of emotion can absolutely kill us, because its the numbing of them that kills people everyday. Eric Johnson says, “Future generations are depending on you to come face to face with how you feel.” So what do we do with emotions?
WHAT IS THIS?
How to Master Emotional Intelligence for Living Courage is an e-Course that will radically change your resilience to life.
Previous students have commonly said this second module in the Living Courage series is one of the most enjoyable and beneficial. It is the second foundation stone of building courage as a life style.
This is a safe, sacred place where your learning is yours. Your answers are yours and they are not monitored or recorded in anyway. This is why I ask you to have your own workbook and why I do not not offer an online workbook.
The central purpose of this course is to aid you in developing self awareness and empowerment in a safe, respectful, shame-free space.
Living Courage is a training series consisting of 4 modules. While each module can stand alone and be done as an individual course. The Living Courage series is designed to build onto each other creating a deeper more comprehensive understanding and development of the skills and lifestyle of courage.

WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT and WHERE DOES THIS FIT WITH FAITH?
God is an emotional being! We don’t get too far into the Bible and God demonstrates an array of emotions. The Scriptures speak to us of the emotional journey and emotional challenge living faith is. One of the most needed spiritual gifts in this day, is discernment. What if we are a ‘feeler’ and discern through feelings? We are not going to understand ourselves or this gifting if we do not grow in Emotional Intelligence.
I don’t believe its possible to reach the fullness of our relationship with God and others, to move with maturity in spiritual gifts or progress as far as we desire in our professional lives and cultures without Emotional Intelligence. We are not going to build strong healthy counter culture faith communities without it because life and people are emotional. Communities as with individuals, self destruct under the weight of our complex, demanding world without developing their EI.
This course features easily learned elements supported by practical exercises, all clearly explained by Helen Goatley, Instructor and Consultant.

What’s OK and What is not OK?
It is OK to do this course and use all worksheets with others in your Leadership or Staffing teams, friendship groups or Church groups. We ask that each group member pay for the course themselves. We live by a core value of honor and this is a way to honor the work of the Author and yourself as a learner. We value what we sacrifice for. For me, this is a means of income and a way of supporting the work so I can continue in it. Share, learn, grow and change the world you live in!
It is NOT OK to use any part of this course or it’s materials for commercial use. You can not sell it, sell training based on it or create a website redistributing this course or any material from it.
