Using Poetry and the Visual Arts to Develop Emotional Intelligence
Morris, J. Andrew; Urbanski, John; Fuller, Janice
Journal of Management Education, v29 n6 p888-904 2005
This article presents a series of experiential exercises designed to use visual arts and poetry in classroom settings to increase students' awareness and recognition of emotion--two key components of emotional intelligence. Drawing on the liberal arts in the manner described in the exercises provides the instructor with a context in which students can examine emotions and also helps business faculty blend the skills and competencies students acquire during their studies in the liberal arts with career preparation the students receive in the traditional business administration curriculum.
