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!
These seminars are testaments to the dedication of the never-ending learning experience and commitment by Brandman University. Although I graduated two years ago, they are still teaching and enhancing my education.
Excellent information for all level of teaching, preschool, K-12. Valuable content for both new and established teachers.
The webinar was extremely informative and it really made me reanalyze myself as leader to see where I stand and where I need to improve on.
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.
This was a great webinar and I am grateful to have access to this kind of resource. Presentation was well delivered, great content and engaging speaker.
The webinar was excellent. The information presented has a lot of value and being able to relate it to real scenarios definitely made it easier to understand and relate to.
