This post is a continuation of the virtual training resource on Social Awareness for Emotional Intelligence which can be used as part of a management development session on emotional intelligence for first-line managers. You can read about the previous part of the session on what social awareness looks like here.
REFLECTING ON YOUR OWN SOCIAL AWARENESS
Now the participants will reflect on their own social awareness by thinking about fourteen actions, including the six previously discussed. They will then decide each action is:
- Not important for them
- One they already do
- An action they should start doing or do more off
They will identify three actions that they need to start doing or do more off which they will discuss with the whole group.
Direct them to the part of their workbooks titled – REFLECTING ON YOUR OWN SOCIAL AWARENESS. Tell them to read the first two paragraphs of the information and check that they understand what they will be doing.
WORKBOOK – REFLECTING ON YOUR OWN SOCIAL AWARENESS
Give them 10-minutes for the activity.
When the time is up, stop them and get everyone’s attention.
Then ask each participant to talk about the three actions they chose and why they chose those actions.
Make sure you listen to them. You don’t need to make any comments or ask any questions.
When they finish, thank them for doing the activity and then ask them for any comments and/or questions. Listen to any they have and respond only if necessary. Then move on to the final part of the session.
The next post will conclude this training session.
