Emotional and Social Intelligence is the ability to identify our feelings and those of others. It helps us to self-reflect, reconfigure our focus on ourselves so that we can direct emotions effectively internally and to others. Effective and evidenced based approaches utilized in the Fundamentals of thinking program are incorporated by the four elements represented by the acronym S.E.E.D;

S. Social
: Focusing on development of socialization skills.
E. Emotional: Breaking down the physical response to an emotional experience.
E. Enlightenment: Help refine how we cope with our emotions.
D. Development: Cultivating skills to combat the emotional response.

About The Founder

Johnathon Collins

Johnathon Collins grew up in Cleveland, Ohio where he witnessed violence and trauma at an alarming rate. Growing up the oldest of 14 kids with a 15 year old mother would show him life from a different perspective. After the loss of his brother and several close friends through senseless acts of violence, it had become clear that the state of society has only two paths for young people; prison or death. The question he found himself asking was “what was the difference?” How had he managed to avoid the collective dangers and pitfalls that seemed pervasive in communities such as his, and those around the world?
