The ever-changing and fast-paced world of work places ever greater demands on individuals. It is widely accepted that emotional intelligence is a better predictor of effective leadership and general success in the workplace than IQ. Emotional intelligence empowers us to recognise and understand our own emotions and feelings, gain insight into how we express ourselves, and develop and maintain healthy social relationships. By developing our emotional intelligence, we learn to cope with environmental demands and pressures more effectively.
This workshop will equip delegates with the knowledge and practical skills to discover their own levels of emotional intelligence, as well as to enhance their strengths, and address identified areas for development.
Benefits for the individual include:
- Being more positive about themselves
