Emotional intelligence and cultural experiences

Experiencing a local family run weaving business and bargaining at a local market – the day was filled with true Tanzanian experiences. We rounded the day off by cooking Tanzanian food together.

On top of that, lectures, both in Swahili and on tribes and local cultures, filled the morning. Also the day’s 2-hour workshop on Emotional Intelligence marks one of the highlights on the YGP Learning Journey. It was truly a busy day!

A few of the learnings from the day were:

Patrick: “Recognizing and embracing feelings elevates the learning experience.”

Kate S: “Being more comprehensive about personal feelings is a good start to understand others emotions, points of views and cultures.”
