Soft skills for our foster kids with EQlibrium training
Our Kenosis kids have been so blessed this year to benefit from an extracurricular training series focussing on Emotional Intelligence. Libby Edmonds, a former teacher and owner of EQlibrium, a company that offers emotional intelligence training to educators, parents, and individuals blessed our children with weekly afternoon classes focussing on equipping youngsters with the soft skills that are fast becoming a key factor in company recruiting practices. Unlike IQ which is fixed, EQ is learnable, measurable and effective. Practicing EQ provides a good foundation for these success factors: Good health; Quality relationships; Life satisfaction; Personal achievement; Self-efficacy.
The course culminated in a Pop up workshop and party which Libby ran for the children and which was thoroughly enjoyed by all of them.
