The Leading with Emotional Intelligence webinar was an excellent refresher on understanding EI. The facilitators made it so clear and easy to understand it was almost as if I was in a classroom and they were right next to me advising me one-on-one. The workshop was clear and concise and offered much more information than I expected!

Joining this webinar was very insightful and useful. Before this seminar, I was very hesitant about introducing project-based learning into my classroom. It will take some more planning, but I can see myself using this in the future.
