Leading with Emotional Intelligence

For years now, people have been determining their self-worth and competency based on their IQ. It has become evident however, that intellectual capacity does not guarantee success. It is the presence of high emotional intelligence (EQ) that helps people achieve success through relationship building, flexing to change and making good decisions under stress. This workshop introduces the concept of emotional intelligence, applies EQ in all areas of the workplace, and gives participants a chance to rate and develop their own emotional intelligence.

Using Reuven BarOns work with the EQi assessment, participants learn the science behind emotional intelligence and why it is accepted as a valid measurement of EQ.

Rating Personal Emotional Intelligence

The Emotional Intelligence report and the exercises really help to give insight in how I deal with certain situations and ways to improve!”

The EQi report gave me greater understanding of me – who I am, what my strengths are and areas for improvement….I am also able to recognize emotional intelligence qualities in others now.

It was a good workshop…I enjoyed the interaction and comments from the group exercises and learning the various levels of emotional intelligence. I also learned how to apply these in the workplace in order to be a more effective leader.
