Emotional intelligence

The capicity to improvise relies on self-awareness. Even though our main focus is on play, regular practice has an incidental therapeutic effect and can develop all aspects of emotional intelligence:

  • Self-awareness - the ability to know one's emotions, strengths, weaknesses, drives, values and goals and recognise their impact on others while using gut feelings to guide decisions;
  • Self-regulation - involves controlling or redirecting one's disruptive emotions and impulses and adapting to changing circumstances;
  • Social skill - managing relationships to move people in the desired direction;
  • Empathy - considering other people's feelings especially when making decisions;
  • Motivation - being driven to achieve for the sake of achievement.
