In many Eastern cultures, social skills, communication and relationship skills are considered more important than information. In the West, credentials are generally more important than competence and relationship skills, and emotional intelligence may be ignored or left to chance. Some key skills of emotional intelligence are:
Failure to use knowledge management skills may result in lower performance, reduced prospects at work and a risk of being labeled as learning disabled - or just slow.
If you fail to develop your relationship skills, you risk a lowered acceptance by other people, and problems enjoying friendship, teamwork, partnership and parenthood.
Some people prefer to avoid intellectual, emotional or relationship intelligence. The reasons often involve identity loss - resulting from emotional incest, parental alienation or other relationship experiences. We coach people to accelerate their excellence by resolving relationship issues and emotional problems that delay happiness.
Decelerating Education with Fluoridated Drinking Water

Are you dumbing down your children? Scientific studies in China, Mexico, India and Iran have shown that chronic exposure to low levels of fluorine is associated with IQ deficits and docile behavior, especially in (but not limited to) children.
It's not only fluorine, however.
Systemic Coaching in Education
It's not too late to learn - if you can answer "Yes" to these questions:
Most people accept the learning styles of their parents and teachers without question, and a few people develop their own learning styles. Does your learning style help you assimilate and use new information? We can coach you to find, refine and use what is most effective for you; and help you design and fine tune your own learning.
Accelerated Learning Strategies
Our accelerated learning includes strategies for improving learning. We developed some of our strategies as we researched how people learn. Our programs:
Systemic Accelerated Learning
We tailor our work to each client and student, and we explore how to develop perhaps-unique accelerated learning strategies appropriate for your personal goals. What accelerates your learning may not be optimal for your friend, partner or student. We help people create their own individual accelerated learning strategies.
Accelerated Learning for Children with Problems
We support children teenagers and young adults with suspected relationship or emotional problems by 1. coaching their parents, and 2. coaching the children or teenagers themselves. We help provide appropriate social-emotional support for parents and children, and ways to evaluate and change childhood relationship issues and emotional problems, and to accelerate learning.
Other Accelerated Learning Possibilities
While suggestions, relaxation, music etc may benefit your learning, the effects are likely short term. Most blocks to learning seem to originate in uncomfortable emotions, limiting beliefs and relationship fixations. If your goal is to pass some examinations and then forget everything, these approaches may be OK. For lasting results, you may need to change some beliefs - we call them relationship bonds.
Hypnosis , Suggestion & Metaphors
Many books and CDs claim to help you improve your learning, often by overcoming your beliefs with more powerful ideas. That sounds like marketing to us, but some of it may work for you.
Speed reading comprehension tests on people who have attended popular speed reading workshops have not shown the wondrous claims made for this modality.
When you are relaxed, you are more likely to concentrate on whatever is being taught, especially if it is presented in interesting ways. If you are anxious or worried about something, you may remember your fears better than the material that you study.
Laughter & Fun
Why not make learning fun? Look for funny sides of the material you want to remember. Maybe imagine clowns juggling with the data or imagine what your favorite comedian might say about it. Perhaps you can make funny anagrams of the first letters of key information.
Does listening to music help you study? Not me - although some sellers of recorded music claim that their music can help you learn. Dr Lozanov, a pioneer of accelerated learning, claimed that Baroque music (e.g. J.S. Bach and G.F. Handel) helps people remember what they study.
Sleep learning seems more likely to disturb your sleep and cause strange dreams rather than improve your rest. Even small amounts of sleep deprivation can negatively affect your study. Instead of learning, tired people may drift into inattention, daydreams, impaired memory and shortened attention span.
Practice & Review
How do you review and use your memorized knowledge? A review schedule can make a tremendous difference to your retention of knowledge, rather than trying to cram all review into the last day before an interview or examination.
Left and Right Brains
Some psychologists insist that both sides of your brain have different functions. The left side is supposed to deal with language, numbers and logic, while the right side may deal with music, visual impressions and patterns. Even if true, we do not find this particularly useful.
Do you have trouble remembering numbers and equations? This may be due to a too-early introduction to mathematics, which resulted in remembering frustration rather than remembering relationships between quantities. This can result in unpleasant feelings when you consider science problems or mathematical equations. We can help people change unpleasant associations.
Food for Thought
Some dietary supplements claim to boost brain power and memory, although it may seem that many books on this topic have contradictory recommendations. As many processed foods seem to lack nutritional ingredients, some food supplements may make sense. But which ones?
Stress & Memory
Your stress can help or hinder your study and recall. Although you can use many excellent relaxation techniques both ancient and modern, perhaps choose a low-stress learning location where you can make mistakes and still expect success.
Drugs & Memory: State Dependent Learning
The side-effects of some prescription & recreational drugs include drowsiness and disorientation that does not support long-term memory. While coffee may raise blood pressure and alertness, and nicotine may help stabilize emotions for a while, both are addictive and neither may be available during important exams or interviews.
Filter everything you want to learn with a healthy skepticism and test new information for accuracy, relevance and consequences. This can increase your interest in the material and help you remember the information that you choose.
