Building Emotional Intelligence

Course Overview

Emotional Intelligence (EQ or EI) can be defined as the ability to understand, manage, and effectively express one’s own feelings, as well as engage and navigate successfully with those of others.  It involves the ability to tap into your emotions and use them to make your life better. Being in touch with your feelings allows you to manage stress levels and communicate effectively with other people, two skills that enhance your life both personally and professionally. Studies have shown that a high emotional quotient correlates with greater career success, stronger leadership potential, better health, greater relationship satisfaction, better social skills, and higher productivity.

This course focuses on the development and application of emotional intelligence rather than theory. Participants practice the skills they learn which are the core of achieving personal awareness, connecting with others, managing stress, effectively dealing with others, becoming more flexible to change, and how to regulate personal emotions.

Participants learn:

  • Why emotional intelligence is such an important skill in today’s workplace
  • How important self-awareness is
  • How to stay flexible (even in difficult situations)
  • How to relate better to others
  • How to improve both personal and social skills
  • How to improve self-control
  • How to improve personal motivation and motivate others

This is an team activity based course where participants practice what they learn before they leave so they are prepared to utilize the skills they learn immediately, with success.
