7 Summary

The main learning points from this session are:

  • Wariness was expressed in the term ‘emotional intelligence’ which has become a haphazard assortment of ideas. Some researchers suggest analysis and understanding of its components separately may be more valuable.
  • The importance of emotional regulation was emphasised as contributing to calm, consistent and effective communication.
  • Three features of social media communication were identified as a difficulty in crafting messages for multiple audiences, the ‘echo chamber’ phenomenon and its public and potentially searchable nature.
  • A balanced approach to reflection that considers strengths and weakness should be employed to help you learn from experience and apply some of your knowledge from the course.
