I Don't Need No Stinkin' Emotional Intelligence...Or Do I?

So you joined this group called Emotionally Intelligent Daters because maybe you thought it sounded interesting, or maybe you figured it would be a good place to meet people. And when you come to an event, you get a glimpse of how emotional intelligence plays a role in dating. But have you really been able to wrap your brain around what it means to be emotionally intelligent? Do you get how it can make or break your success in dating and relationships?

This session will not be our typical discussion; I will be giving you a crash course in emotional intelligence. We will fully define emotional intelligence and show you how it applies to your dating life.

In this session, you will:
•Develop an understanding of emotional intelligence, the competencies associated with it and how NOT using them can wreck your dating life!
•Learn what an emotional hijack is and how it makes you simultaneously smart and stupid.
•Complete a self assessment on your own EQ (Emotional Intelligence Quotient) and determine if you are getting in your own way of finding that special someone.
•Identify your triggers that make you put up roadblocks to dating.

The first step in being emotionally intelligent is being self-aware. You will DEFINITELY be more self-aware after this session!

Like our normal events, we will dine together, each person ordering and paying individually for their meal. Unlike our normal events, I will be formally presenting information and provide you reference materials to take with you. (Hence the fee associated with this event.) But don’t think you get to sit back and be a passive attendee. You will absolutely be engaged during this session!

I look forward to sharing with you the benefit of three certifications and nearly ten years of coaching/training in emotional intelligence. Sharing is the whole point, isn't it?

As usual, I will email all attendees the exact restaurant location two days before the event, so please be sure you have set your email preferences to allow emails from me.

    Terrific! Learned so much and really made me think. I would highly recommend this to anyone...not just singles who are in the dating world. Dawn, thanks for everything you do. =)

    When I was close to home 30 miles from meeting restaurant I thought I had a flat tire. DeKalb Tire put air in tire and said I was fine. I went downtown to the Fox and ended up having a flat tire at the Krispy Kreme at 10:30 PM. I had to look outside myself and handle the problem intelligently. Not a dating problem. I really want to yell at my Tire man. Any ideas on what to sayEI wise.

    I enjoyed it. No one ever seems to talk about relationships in a helpful way.

      Jackie, this seminar was a platform that Dawn used to quickly give us one tool that can lead use to a personal level of Emotional Intelligent Dating. The free two hour sessions that she offers are constructed to provide individuals the opportunity to provide insight and discuss (talk) about their understanding of a concept/ discussion point on one of these tools used in Emotional Intelligent Dating. There is lots of talk at these meetings.

      Jackie, by emotions I mean things like happy, sad, nervous, anxious, irritated, annoyed, surprised, etc.

    Looks interesting, but is a little short notice. I will be doing anything but exhibiting emotional intelligence at this time: competing in a jiu jitsu tournament. :-)
