How It Works
Creating an Emotionally Intelligent World is a computer-based training game that provides emotional intelligence activities for adults. Through this fun and interactive game, players learn about - and practice - five core skills of emotional intelligence:
- Awareness of Self
- Awareness of Others
- Actions of Self
- Interactions with Others
- Increase knowledge about emotional intelligence
- Learn how emotional intelligence can influence success in the workplace and personal life
- Find out how to apply emotional intelligence skills in common, everyday situations
- Learn about strategies for developing emotional intelligence
Creating an Emotionally Intelligent World is an interactive computer-based team game built on the PowerPoint platform. The purpose is to boost players’ understanding of emotions and how they impact other people while interacting with a series of highly engaging emotional intelligence activities for adults.
The fast-paced challenges included in Creating an Emotionally Intelligent World relate to the five dimensions of emotional intelligence, and make for exciting game play as teams of up to six players per computer work together on a group project. The end goal is to earn enough points to complete a 30-piece puzzle by correctly responding to seven different types of challenges.
And just as in real life, during gameplay "unexpected life events" (ULEs) randomly intervene, which either add or subtract puzzle pieces and complications from the overall project. The game concludes when a team completes the puzzle project, or runs out of time. At that point, players learn their performance statistics, including an overall emotional intelligence awareness rating, a team performance score, and an assessment of how frequently the individual players choose to act independently or collaboratively.
Creating an Emotionally Intelligent World provides skill development learning in five core components of emotional intelligence: awareness of self, actions of the self, awareness of others, interaction with others, and resilience.
