Emotional Intelligence: Leadership's Super Power

Discount Available for Groups

This course will run from 9am–4pm via Zoom. There will be a break at 12pm for lunch and smaller breaks throughout the day.

Did you know that emotional intelligence is a better predictor of workplace effectiveness than IQ? And it's up to five times as important when you compare people within the same career? When you think about what behaviors characterized your most- and least-effective bosses, you are probably thinking about emotional intelligence skills such as motivating you and others, caring about you as a person, listening effectively, addressing conflict in timely and effective ways, communicating well, creating a high morale work environment, and many more. These are all emotional intelligence skills, and they can be learned.

As part of this workshop, you will complete the Emotional Quotient Inventory 2.0, receive coaching about your results, and identify simple strategies you can begin using to increase your emotional intelligence. You will understand what emotional intelligence is and how it affects your daily work behaviors. This customized learning experience is the ticket to a stronger leadership role for you and your team.
