Numerous studies have shown that EQ improves not only academic achievement and positive behaviour, BUT ALSO reduces stress and can predict up to a 66-79% of variation in performance! In short it has a positive impact on increasing academic performance, effectiveness & decision making, improving relationships, health and thereby general quality of life!
