Training Activities from Emotional Intelligence 2.0 by Travis Bradberry & Jean Greaves

The book I am currently learning from is Emotional Intelligence 2.0 by Travis Bradberry and Jean Greaves. Written in 2009, this book is a great introduction to emotional intelligence. In fact, it does much more than that. The book describes what emotional intelligence is and what it looks like, identifies the four components or behaviours of emotional intelligence, and outlines actions we can take to demonstrate each of the behaviours. This book will make you a more emotionally intelligent person.

If you purchase a new copy of the book, you will also have access to an online assessment that will help you to assess your own emotional intelligence. After doing the assessment the book then provides a plan for you to identify where you are strong and areas where you may need to develop and how to do so.

For the purpose of developing virtual training activities and courses for management and leadership training, below are the key learning points I identified from the book (I have phrased them as questions).

Key Learning Points

  • What is emotional intelligence?
  • What are the four core components or behaviours of emotional intelligence?
  • What is self-awareness?

  • What is social awareness?
  • What does social awareness look like?
  • How do I demonstrate social awareness?
  • What is relationship management?

I will convert these key learning points into learning objectives for the purpose of designing the training activities and courses.
