"The fifteen frames of mind” or Emotional Intelligence (EI) in Action

Speaker:  Marina Riedi, PCC

The idea that people are rarely emotionally affected by external events but rather by their thinking about such events goes back to ancient Stoic philosophers. And yet, even to this day we can find ourselves thinking about a particular situation in a way that catches us in an emotional trap of anger, frustration, or sadness. 

One way out is to look at the situation from different perspectives and adopt those that are beneficial to our emotional well-being and help us achieve our goals. In this workshop you will experience the perspective-taking process and apply it to a situation in your own life. You will reflect on how different frames of mind influence your emotional state.  

The workshop introduces the concept of Emotional Intelligence and provides an opportunity to practice two techniques for handling emotions and to see for yourself the interplay between thoughts and emotions. These are techniques you will be able to apply not only for yourself but also for your clients. 

Join this interactive workshop to tap into “The fifteen frames of mind” and learn about Emotional Intelligence in Action. 


At the workshop you will:

  • Be introduced to the definition of Emotional Intelligence and the main components involved in this concept.
  • Learn about the two-dimensional map of emotions and how to use it to train emotional self-awareness. 
  • Understand the fifteen frames of mind through which you can perceive a situation and train your ability to take different perspectives. 
  • Reflect on a situation that is relevant to you and contemplate how EI can support you in handling emotions effectively.
