After a week of blogging my action plan to be totally hounest Ive only addressed 2 of my action plan points.
The second point probably had the strongest response over this past week as I have taken to reading the Student newspaper The Gateway quite rigourously as I find it interesting and informative unlike some broadsheets. It gives student perspective and allows me to think of making an informed decison. It also does increase commercial awareness by telling of recent events and goings on in different sectors and industries.
As to my point about gaining more skills through socialising I have attended a bright network session on assesment centres and the interview process in general. In it we did a lot of team work and other social aspects came through which I felt I learnt from.
With my first point as I have not done anything interms of applications after the workshop I plan to put aside some spare time and think nd reflect on the direction I'm taking why for what reasons etc, How I can benefit from the experiences I have and what I learnt from them. Using the reflective bookmark given out in the wrokshop essentially.

Having attended the workshop on emotional intelligence I have come up with my 3 point action plan showing what I have taken out of workshop and how I intend to use the content to work on myself in future
1. My SMART goal, which was for the next one week everytime I felt as though I was heating up to an arguement I would sit down take deep breaths, proceed to lying down if necessary. This shows that I am aware of my own emotions and know that it can be detrimental to others emotions towards me and I'm taking "smart" moves to address that.
2. Whenever I find myself some spare thinking time I'll reflect on any particular emotional points of the day and when I was maybe arrogant of others emotions and my own; think about how else I could have reacted, perhap with less anger in realtion to point 1.
3. If when I'm with my friends I'll talk to them about the workshop and go over things I found about myself, waht they thought of me etc. Maybe even try to convinve them into coming
