A school represents an organic web of relationships between teachers, administrators, students, parents and the community. Look deeper and you will find emotional, social, psychological, spiritual and physical overtones in the interactions that take place in a school daily.
The ability to perceive, access and manage your emotions and those of others is called emotional quotient. In a school it is to be nurtured in a child for his/her holistic development and can be used as a powerful relation building tool for administrators.
Just as a school has a physical presence and an ambience it also engulfs an emotional space which can be tapped to provide energy and motivation to reach its goals.
