#raisingkids: Love & Chores
Against a backdrop of constant change and global fears of insecurity and scarcity, parenting has become overwhelming, and often guilt and fear-driven. Based on the book #raisingkids To Thrive in a Constantly Changing World, this talk (60-90 minutes) or workshop (120 minutes) looks at the importance of Emotional Intelligence (EQ) in a constantly changing world and how we can practically grow these skills in our children.
#raisingkids: Build a Business
A workshop (120-180 minutes) for Grade 7-10 learners based on the book #raisingkids To Thrive in a Constantly Changing World. Each learner and their family receive a copy of the book, which will be used in the workshop and beyond. In the workshop, learners use EQ tools and activities to develop a new product, business plan and design a new app. This illustrates the importance of EQ in a constantly changing working world, where people and EQ will be the constants.
