These materials are my go-to resources."—Candice Johnston, associate director of student leadership and organizations, Wake Forest University"If I were building a new course to improve student success, it would be founded on emotional intelligence. All the instruction in the world on 'study skills' cannot touch the advantages that come to students who are able to manage their emotional intelligence. And the best news of all is that these skills can be taught. EQ skills make the difference." —Randy L. Swing, executive director, Association for Institutional Research "This Facilitation and Activity Guide is particularly useful, offering options from which the facilitator can draw in preparing assignments or learning community meetings. The focus on learners' needs, and particularly an authentic exploration of self and purpose, is practical yet has the potential to draw students to a deeper understanding of self that will draw them to high performance and contribution to others."—Dennis Roberts, assistant vice president for faculty and student services for the Qatar Foundation
