Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is the ability to manage ourselves and our relationships effectively, especially when things are tense or we are in conflict. Increasing one’s EQ can lead to more effective leadership skills, enhanced career success, greater happiness and relationship satisfaction. Current research shows that the more emotionally intelligent one is, the more likely they are to receive higher peer and/or supervisor ratings of interpersonal skills and stress tolerance. The evidence is strong that there is a significant relationship between EQ and workplace performance.
Emotional Intelligence is not only about navigating through conflict and stress. It is about mindfulness and the informed choices we can make in our relationships if we know our strengths and triggers. It is also about learning to authentically connect with others and show up as our true selves in all areas of our lives. The “Emotional Intelligence: Effective Communication and Influence” training is an experiential course where participants are actively involved from the start, learning as they are doing. This workshop will use an interactive approach, one-on-one coaching, and real-time application of learning (e.g., applying skills to work-related issues). Active engagement in the learning process through experiential activities create a fun, insightful learning atmosphere. Participants gain a solid foundation of knowledge and tools for working with and enhancing their emotional intelligence and communication skills.
- Understand key components of EQ and the important role it plays in all arenas of life – personal and professional
- Develop tools for greater self-awareness, self-management, awareness of others and relationship skills
