The ‘way how’, the intensive learning process taking place in Emotive fits with Goleman’s (1995) theory of ‘Emotional Intelligence’. Many of the significant stories and key findings from this E-motive evaluation mirror Goleman’s theory in practice:

Motivation: connecting action with passion: Search, identify and connect local innovations with propensity for both local and global solutions.
Skilled Relationships: Narrow the distance and support community exchange of information through online platforms.
Empathy with others: Transformation through collaboration ‘nurturing’ demonstrated by e.g. the Theatre of the Oppressed exchanges.
