LEARNING CONTENT REPOSITORY

Welcome to the IGUANA Learning Content Repository

 

This section contains introductory material created for the IGUANA “Discovery” Programme and the structure of the Repository matches the structure of the self-assessment tools, so you can choose a content module for an EI or OI competence as set out below.

 

Emotional Intelligence self-assessment tool content

There are many ways of describing and assessing emotional intelligence.  The IGUANA approach views emotional intelligence as a holistic way of looking at, and engaging with the world. It sees emotional intelligence as a continuous process of self-awareness and self-development. Nevertheless, it is helpful to structure emotional intelligence into a set of specific elements or ‘competence areas’. These competence areas overlap with and complement each other, and no one particular competence area is seen as more important than any other area.  The IGUANA learning programme covers four of these competence areas. These are:

Intra-personal competences – these help an individual to assess their emotional intelligence and include Emotional self-awareness, Self-confidence and Good-enoughness

Inter-personal competences – these help an individual to apply their intra-personal competences to develop a positive relationship with the external world and with other people and include Empathy, Social responsibility and Relationship-handling

Adaptability –  these help an individual to respond effectively to changing situations and include Resilience, Initiative and Belief and assertiveness

Affective competences – these help an individual assess their mood and how they manage their mood in relation to behaviours and relationships and include Anxiety management, Stress management and Optimism and Happiness

  • Intra-personal competences – the personal competences that enable an individual to accurately assess their emotional intelligence and how this is likely to shape their relationship with the external world and with other people. The three competences are:

The Organisational self-assessment tool content

The OI tool helps a school to explore whether and in what ways there are deeply-rooted structures and behaviour patterns within the organisation that are preventing it from changing and growing. It also helps assess the school’s capacity for change and innovation.

The content related to the Organisational assessment tool is divided into seven areas or organisational competences:

  1. Positive Holding Environment – how leadership and authority works and how risk-taking and change are handled
  2. Groupishness – how work groups operate and interact
  3. Organisational well-being – how emotional intelligence is applied in the school
  4. Systems orientation – the open-ness of the school to innovation and how it interacts with external systems
  5. Normalisation – how the school balances conformity with rule-breaking
  6. Evaluation – how the school defines its vision and how this vision is implemented and assessed
  7. Learning Organisation – the school’s capacity for critical review and reflection and how it learns to do better
