Emotional Intelligence: How It Interfaces with SEL

We all know social and emotional skills are important to develop in youth, but the learning doesn't have to stop there. Similar competencies in adults, known as emotional intelligence, could be further developed to enhance leadership skills.

Curious about this relationship? Check out this 13-minute video presentation, focused on understanding how emotional intelligence (EQ) and social and emotional learning (SEL) interface. Produced as part of Margo Herman's Leading with Emotional Intelligence Fellowship Project through NAA, this video was designed to provide adults with a solid grounding for helping youth develop SEL skills.
