We focus on how emotions can be harnessed to make better decisions. What are at times called “soft skills” often have the biggest impact on our lives. So, why leave them to chance?

Learning to be emotionally intelligent, combining rational and emotional thinking motivates, creates purpose and helps us make better choices. EQ means being smarter with feelings.

Dragonfly integrates an emotional learning curriculum, active instruction and participation, and the use of world-leading emotional intelligence assessments to achieve specific individual and group goals.

WHY EQ?

A fast-changing world with greater complexity, uncertainty and stress requires skill development in leadership, collaborating with others, and being able to adapt to quickly moving social and technological changes. Emotional intelligence helps develop these skills.

EQ focuses on what is really important- abilities and attitudes we want for ourselves, our children and others: respectful relationships, feeling healthy, confidence in oneself, living a balanced life, and meeting commitments and goals.

EQ skills can be learned, improved and measured, increasing leadership effectiveness.

Dragonfly’s Management Essentials training modules and Team Vital Signs reports comprehensively focus on developing better EQ skills for individuals and teams. People are driven by emotions, and better understanding our own and others’ need for trust, acceptance of risk, intrinsic motivators and differing viewpoints results in better decision making and improved performance.

LEARNING

Dragonfly courses begin with purpose- what do we want to achieve, and why? We use a research-based EQ curriculum to guide designing programs and setting objectives. Learning with Dragonfly is about gaining new skills and taking action. To achieve this, we integrate EQ tools using experiential teaching methods for personal and social development. Outcomes can be measured using EQ assessments, providing evidence of development post-course.

Creating Focus

The foundation of our curriculum is the Six Seconds model. This helps to create a specific focus for outcomes, moving past general concepts of teambuilding and leadership and zooming in on measurable competencies. It starts from learning more about yourself, progressing to considering options and effects and then to applying on a wider stage.
