Description

Join us at the 2019 Moreland Early Years Conference and discover, what is emotional intelligence and how can it help us improve our practice? Skills like empathy, motivation, self-regulation and self-awareness all require emotional intelligence. These are skills which help us face challenging behaviours, but for us to successfully teach these skills to children it is imperative that we understand them.

You will have the opportunity to think differently & explore emotional intelligence, through presentations by:

Anthony Semann is primarily a presenter and researcher. His ability to deliver inspirational conference key notes and facilitate innovative and transformative professional development programs is renowned. His background is in education, research and management – in government, corporate and community-based organisations. Anthony’s expertise as a researcher and his specialist knowledge of early education has seen him work across Australia, Asia, Europe, America, France and New Zealand. He has delivered hundreds of key notes and papers at conferences and over 15,000 professional development programs over the last 20 years. Anthony challenges organisations and people. He asks them to reflect. To ask how their communication, their leadership, their values, their relationships and their workplace culture and diversity affect what they do. He asks them to reflect because it is these things that affect their services, businesses and ultimately the community.

Key Note: Unlocking your potential through great consciousness is the key to success the ability to develop greater consciousness of yourself and others? How might we begin to develop this in the early years sector and what in fact are we trying to unlock? The goal at hand is to develop better human connections, the ability to suspend what we think we know in order to learn what we need, as well as the commitment to going learning and development. This keynote will provide the opportunity to delve into the world of emotional intelligence.

Angela North is a registered psychologist and play therapist of 20 years’ experience, working with parents and their children in clinical, community and educational settings. Angela's current roles include Senior Psychologist at the Cheshire School, a specialised primary school for children with significant social, emotional and behavioural problems. Angela has helped develop the Cheshire Toolkit, an online program for early childhood educators to foster social-emotional skills in the pre-school classroom. Utilising play therapy and parent-child (filial) therapy, Angela supports children to recover from trauma and grief, to develop resilience, enhance family relationships and adjust to new social circumstances in positive ways.

In Angela's lecture you will learn to define trauma, understand what underpins emotional intelligence, and what play therapists do to help. You will have opportunities to reflect on your work with children, and how your own history and family culture informs your work and life. Most importantly, Angela brings all this information together with practical tips, techniques, videos and resources for further learning. These are designed to help you recognise your own strengths, and how you can best support children in developing emotional intelligence and a strong sense of self.

Colin Slattery is primarily a leadership coach and change facilitator. He specialises in organisational development, group facilitation, personal development, coaching, psychometric assessment, leadership assessment, leadership training and community engagement. Colin is in high demand to coach and mentor employees, especially in change management situations because of his experience as a senior executive with government agencies and in large non-government organisations. And because of his compassion, his warmth and his capacity to discern quickly. Colin pushes clients to do better. To understand why their staff, work in the ways they do and to ask if that knowledge can be used to assist them to go further, do better and perform in the best way possible. He creates knowledge within organisations to improve organisations.

Emotional intelligence the key to success. Emotional intelligence has been seen as one of the keys to success both professional and personally. And it is through both assessing and then planning for action based on our assessment of our emotional intelligence that the real magic happens. In this workshop we will explore the world of emotional intelligence and how we can grow this in order to become more connected and more responsive colleagues, friends and partners.
