I have been away from home this week, teaching a course on Emotional Intelligence to aspiring principals at SPA, an intensive leadership program from Columbia University Teachers College.
Two times this week, my daughters called me crying because they missed me. It was very difficult to see them through the screen, tears flowing down their faces because Mama was not home.
If you are a working mom or dad, you know the emotions that come with this situation: guilt, sadness, sometimes even shame for being the cause of your own kids’ pain.
I had to sit with these feelings and honor their message: sadness helped me to focus on how important their love is, and guilt helped me to acknowledge my responsibility in the situation.
As parents, it is not easy to sit with our emotions, especially when we have caused pain to our kids. And yet, when we are able to do this work and cultivate our emotional agility, we are better equipped to teach and model it for our kids.
So, how can we grow our social and emotional capacity to become more effective and compassionate parents? I’m SO excited to share that my new online course is finally ready!
Growing Your HEART Skills is a 7-module online course that will teach you the HEART in Mind Model and help you develop your social and emotional capacity so that you can become a more effective parent and live your entire life with more compassion, empathy, and peace.
As part of Growing Your HEART Skills, you’ll receive:
- 7 Learning Modules that will teach you the five HEART skills step-by-step
- 14 tools to help you dig deeper into what you’re learning in the course and implement it into your work and life, including a pre and post assessment of HEART skills
