My Emotions Matter
We need to talk about emotions!
Emotions matter. They affect our learning, the decisions we make, how we treat others, and our own personal well-being.
Emotions drive people. People drive performance.
We are a values-based education initiative that creates self-reflective learning experiences to improve school climate through emotional intelligence. We believe in a self-aware and empathetic world; where people are aware, intentional, and purposeful.
‘How are you feeling?’
This question, at least in the context of Nepal, is taken lightly. Although we generally get ‘good’ or ‘fine’ as the standard answer, the ability to answer this question with insight can change our lives.
Yet, feelings-based conversations don’t seem to happen enough at home or at school. A 2013 research by Dr. Travis Bradberry and team revealed that Nepal is one of the least self-aware countries in the world. Only 38% of the population were able to express what sort of emotions they experienced a day prior.
My Emotions Matter is committed to developing the capacity to identify and express our feelings in a way that fosters positive relationships.
We transform schools into emotionally safe zones through:
Transformative Heart Space : Self-reflective experiences to know where you are before shifting to where you want to be.
Develop Emotional Leadership: Set high emotional standards to lead from the inside-out.
Move from Fixed to Growth Mindset: Learn skills to develop your level of Emotional Intelligence.
Insightful Feedback Loop : Get insights on the essential so that you are more aware, intentional, and purposeful.
We believe in a self-aware and empathetic world.
