Dragonfly courses begin with purpose- what do we want to achieve, and why? We use a research-based EQ curriculum to guide designing programs and setting objectives. Learning with Dragonfly is about gaining new skills and taking action. To achieve this, we integrate EQ tools using experiential teaching methods for personal and social development. Outcomes can be measured using EQ assessments, providing evidence of development post-course.
The foundation of our curriculum is the Six Seconds model. This helps to create a specific focus for outcomes, moving past general concepts of teambuilding and leadership and zooming in on measurable competencies. It starts from learning more about yourself, progressing to considering options and effects and then to applying on a wider stage.
EQ can be learned and improved, and the best way to learn is by doing and through real-life experiences. Dragonfly uses a change process to go from where we are towards where we want to be. The Change Map helps guide goal setting, activity framing and reflection.
EQ is measurable. Pre-course assessments help to set group and individual objectives. Post-course assessments look comparatively at team and individual results. They provide insight and guidelines for continued learning and development.
