The Social Intelligence online course is self-paced training for people 13 to 100 years old. The goal of the course is to help us understand the root causes of why we do what we do. These insights open the door to fundamental cognitive/behavioral changes. This knowledge helps us more successfully navigate and connect with the world around us, and helps us make more more thoughtful decisions about the direction of our lives.
Students learn by viewing short 5-10 minute entertaining videos, separated into modules as described below. The course is self-paced but most students complete the course in a recommended 2 week time frame.
The course is simple, fun, and certainly not boring. There are no tests, no lectures, and no sleep provoking PowerPoint slides. Just thought provoking short videos. For example:
Ninety-five percent of what we think, say, and do is controlled by unconscious brain processing. Awareness of this fact allows us to understand why humans do what they do, and it gives us the opportunity to interrupt and change course as it is happening.
Our brains unconsciously put people into categories. Prejudice, even prejudices we aren’t aware of, comes naturally because of the way the human brain works. Awareness of this helps us understand peoples’ reactions and allows us to override our own prejudices.
Learning to talk to another person is a skill. Unfortunately, too many of us never learned how to do this. Obstacles often disrupt synchronicity, the biological process that allows us to “click” with another person as we are talking with them. Identifying obstacles that get in our way, along with practice, can make even “dreaded” face-to-face encounters interesting and enjoyable.
Forty percent of us have troubled past experiences that prevent us from having healthy and secure relationships. With careful reflection, this can be reversed.
Our unconscious brain has the ability to automatically inform us how others are feeling and thinking. Again, we often put up obstacles to prevent this process. We can learn to remove these obstacles, become more sensitive to people and situations, and adjust our reactions when appropriate.
Human brains change every second, from birth to death, based on what we hear, think, say, and feel. Because we are in control of these factors, we can change the configuration of our brain.
Social Intelligence is science that we can apply to our lives, but it is useless unless we put it into practice. This is a choice we make, with full realization that it takes effort.

WHO BENEFITS FROM
Our story is connected with yours – whether it is on a personal or professional level, each member of our team understands how a lack of human connection affects people by personal experience.
