Powering Growth Through EQ — Online
Build your Emotional Intelligence with concrete tools and strategies
It is often said that “IQ gets you hired and EQ gets you promoted”.
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 emotions well in themselves and others – and this is at the heart of leadership, productivity, wellbeing and effective relationships.
Research clearly shows that EQ is made up of a set of distinct and measurable emotional and social skills that can be learned and improved through training and practice.
In this highly acclaimed, interactive, two-day workshop, you will be introduced to a model of EQ and will be given concrete strategies and tools to help you optimize your own EQ.
We will start by building awareness of your perceptions, attitudes, interpersonal strengths and challenges and your emotional “hot buttons”. We will then examine the motives, values and drivers of your behaviour and the behaviour of others so that you will be able to communicate more effectively, manage conflict more successfully, make better decisions and cultivate more positive relationships.
