Grow your social and emotional intelligence
Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) is a process through which people learn to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships and make responsible decisions. It’s a foundational workplace skill for all roles and responsibilities, and UCOP Learning and Development offers many opportunities to support your growth.
