Powering Growth Through EQ

Build your Emotional Intelligence with concrete tools and strategies


The key to successful teams, organizations, and businesses is not only in hiring the most intelligent and qualified people; it is found in the edge that allows them to thrive. That edge is emotional intelligence (EQ).

People with high EQ are able to identify, use, and manage their own and others’ emotions well, which is at the heart of leadership, productivity, well-being, and effective relationships.

In this highly interactive seminar, you will be introduced to a model of EQ and exposed to concrete strategies and tools to help you optimize your own EQ. The goal is to enable you to communicate more effectively, make better decisions, and cultivate more positive relationships.
