Emotional Intelligence

Emotional Intelligence: Superior Performance and Decision Making, Empathy, Social Skills, Self Awareness, Self Regulation, Motivation.

Emotional Intelligence: The capacity to be aware of, control, and express one's emotions, and to handle interpersonal relationships judiciously and empathetically.

For most people, emotional intelligence (EQ) is more important than one’s intelligence (IQ) in attaining success in their lives and careers. In fact, psychologists generally agree that among the ingredients for success, IQ counts for roughly 10% (at best 25%); the rest depends on everything else — including EQ.

As individuals, our success depends on our ability to read other people’s signals and react appropriately to them. Therefore, each one of us must develop the emotional intelligence skills required to better understand, empathize and negotiate with other people.

In this workshop, participants will learn to:

  • Define and recognize the importance of Emotional Intelligence (EQ)
  • Recognize some of your EQ strengths and challenges
  • Identify 5 components of EQ
  • Pinpoint situations at work that trigger strong feelings and recognize your personal responses to ‘hot buttons’
  • Understand how to develop EQ through improved self-awareness and self-regulation skills
  • Be better prepared to handle difficult conversations and situations in the workplace.
