Develop your empathy and problem-solving skills
The global pursuit of quality education is crucial for our ability to correctly evaluate and solve the larger problems we are being faced with.
On this four-week course from Ubiquity University, you’ll build your skills in emotional intelligence and critical thinking to help you solve problems in both a work environment and your personal life.
Explore the importance of emotional intelligence in the workplace
This course will help you to develop your emotional intelligence in the workplace, and throughout the rest of your life. It’s important to have empathy for yourself and for others so you’ll look at how to build empathy and the skills that surround it.
Part of emotional intelligence is an awareness of the emotional space in general. You’ll spend time looking at common mental health issues that can affect the way a person is able to operate effectively in the world, especially in the context of mental health at work.
Use critical thinking techniques for problem-solving
You’ll focus on different aspects of critical thinking, examining ways to think differently about topics. This includes evaluating how cultural points of view can influence how we make choices.
Then, you’ll gain an introduction to the Universal Intellectual Standards, a means of checking the quality of reasoning about a problem. To cap this section off, you’ll investigate a simple problem-solving technique that can be applied in real-world scenarios.
