Emotional intelligence

Scientists discovered some decades ago that IQ is not the only kind of intelligence that matters to flourish in life. Specifically, emotional competences help us to deal with the many emotional challenges people face with themselves and with others. Learn what are those emotional competences and how to master them. Workshops illustrated with examples taken from the TV series “Game of Thrones”, “Big Bang Theory”, and “Lie to me”.

Heart rate variability as a self-regulation marker

Take your mental and physical training up to the next level using heart rate variability measurements. Based on the vagal tank theory developed by Sylvain Laborde and his colleagues after a decade of research, learn how to take the most benefits from the virtue of the vagus nerve to empower emotion and stress regulation, concentration, decision-making, social functioning and global health. Inspired and illustrated by many examples from professional athletes and teams that have adopted heart rate variability as their beloved training companion.
