No progression without direction C. Douglas Johnson, Ph.D. Georgia Gwinnett College Dwight Perry, Jr. Central Michigan University & Perry International
Self – Awareness and Personal Impact: What does the Literature Say? What is the Problem? What is the Answer? ◦ IDAA Dimensions ◦ I.D. Follow-through Model What Data is there to support this? What does the Modules/Training look like?
You is Kind You is Smart You is Important EI Lessons Learned from The Help
Emotional Intelligence (EI) was popularized by Daniel Goleman (1995) ◦ Independent competencies in both self-awareness and responsiveness to others The Emotional Intelligence and Diversity Institute, founded in 2004 ◦ EID encompasses the ability to feel, understand, articulate, manage, and apply the power of emotions to interactions across lines of difference (Gardenswartz, Cherbosque, & Rowe, 2010) ◦ Four Elements in the EID model – Affirmative Introspection; Self-Governance; Intercultural Literacy, & Social Architecting
WE must connect… Emotionally!
Gen Y are Passionate Gen Y are whimsical Gen Y seek instant gratification Gen Y need someone or something to believe in? Gen Y will quit what they do not like Gen Y need a reason to perform Gen Y respect transparency Gen Y will not participate, if not engaged Gen Y want to be understood Gen Y desire IMPACT!
[“Learning is the eye of the mind.” We have long known that a mind cannot function well if anxieties prey too heavily upon it.] – Bruno Bettelheim, The Decision to Quit: The School Review Vol. 69, No. 4 (Winter, 1961), pp First Year retention: 80.1% Students are QUITTING! Graduation & Transfer rate: 36.6%
Most cases it is an Emotional Decision Emotions that can make a person want to quit: Stress Lack of Confidence Lack of Support Lack of Trust in ability Depression
PAIN FEAR BROKEN WILL Internal conflict causes QUIT!
If students could be taught: ◦ Resiliency ◦ Tenacity ◦ Self-Confidence ◦ Trust (In themselves and in others) ◦ Influence ◦ Over come fears ◦ Ask for help, if needed ◦ *Unravel Internal Conflict and “Follow Through!”
Here at Perry International we believe that a person’s emotions drive their actions or lack thereof. People wonder how some people are able to follow through and excel at certain things and other struggle to keep up with the pack. We believe that there are 5 key areas that allow us to Impact others exponentially and helps us to “Follow Through” when we are called upon. Here are the five areas and emotions that coincide: Self-Confidence: resides in your state of mind. Your belief makes things real. Influence: resides in the mouth. What you say and who listens Trust: resides in the heart. Your trust level depends on security of your heart. Relationship: resides in the hands. This is because your hands are the only thing on the body with the ability to give and receive which is the fabric of strong relationships/team dynamics. Fear: resides in the feet. This is because fear is the only emotion powerful enough to paralyze the body or if it is released the absence of it can allow you to run a conquer obstacles. These areas are now quantifiable!
This is the first and essential step in understand and ultimately gaining an appropriate strategy to address the retention and lack of engagement issue. Understanding where the students of Greenville Tech are emotionally is vital in connecting and ultimately getting them engaged and retained. The assessment will provide 5 vital emotional components that will be the catalyst to our Impact Strategy to retain them. The five component’s Fear, Trust, Relationship, Self-Confidence, and Influence make up the Emotional Pulse. The Emotional pulse is the aggregated data that will be collected and given to the administration. This data will show the administration where all of their students on a macro-level are emotionally. This is the first instrument capable of this type of insight. (Over 86 % accurate) Based on the levels of the Emotional Pulse, we will know what the first steps to engaging and retaining the students will be.
Impact Development Awareness Assessment (IDAA) that brings awareness to the levels of these 5 areas which aid individuals become more aware of the Impact they possess IDAA: Quantifies the areas of Fear, Trust, Relationships, Self-Confidence, Influence, and Total Impact one is using IDAA Purpose: To provide “Access” into the Emotional Pulse of individuals to aid them use more of the Impact they possess in order to “Follow Through”. IDAA Results: Number of Participants: Over 1,500 upon it 12 month release Age Range: Education Range: High School Diploma to PhD (19 PhD) Assessment time of completion: 3-5 minutes (Avg minutes) Accuracy: Self Generated: 86% (IDAA is currently higher than Myers Briggs and Strength Quest) Intrinsic Motivator: Over 95% of participants say this assessment makes them want to do more in life!
