About the Course
Emotional intelligence is a skill that requires careful regulation and observation of the self as well as those around you. This skillset also addresses mindfulness (the practice of self-awareness and self-regulation) and developing a greater sense of empathy in the workplace. Activities include a daily mindfulness journal and practice, as well as developing an understanding of opposing points of view and how to cultivate empathy.
By the end of this course, students will be able to:
- Identify what emotional intelligence is and how it applies to their careers
- Understand how digital media can affect our mood and thoughts about ourselves
- Identify how to increase empathy in the workplace
- Identify stressors in the workplace and how to mitigate them

“These courses are helpful to anyone looking to improve themselves personally and to give one a leg-up on others when looking for employment.”
Emotional Intelligence is the first course in our Person to Person badge. Though students may take these in any order, we do recommend starting with Emotional Intelligence, then proceeding to the next two courses in the badge: Conflict Resolution, followed by Leadership and Followership. Students may choose to complete a badge in its entirety, or simply elect to take one or two courses from that badge that most address their professional development needs.
This course is 4 weeks long. Each week, you will have two 1-hour sessions of live instruction, and then 1-2 hours of homework. That means a total time commitment of no more than 12-16 hours! This length of time allows students to fully explore the course topic and develop strong foundational skills without having to commit to a lengthy training program.
Plus, you won’t need any fancy equipment to participate. As long as you have a computer and an Internet connection, you can be a Signum Path student. Our program uses GoToWebinar conferencing software for live class sessions. Through the GTW interface, you can ask questions and submit comments to your instructor. The instructor can also allow audio for individual comments or group discussions, depending on the needs of the course. Video sharing is also available for demonstrations, presenting assignments, and other interactive elements.
This course will also use a Google Classroom that you will access through a Signum-provided email address. In that classroom space, you can view and submit assignments, check the course schedule, and discuss ideas with your instructor and fellow participants.
