There is more to being smart than just IQ. Research shows that shows that a person's Emotional Intelligence (EI) is a key factor associated with success in career advancement, team work and personal leadership. The good news is that you can develop skills in EI to build relationships, influence others and create environments that support the realization of common goals.  We often think that feelings can be left out of the world of work; yet, they actually form the subtext of every encounter we have. Learning to work with emotions, rather than denying and ignoring them, will have a positive impact on your life, career and leadership paths.

This interactive workshop will introduce you to the concept of EI and help you to develop skills to:

  1. Manage your emotions so that you can choose how to respond rather than react impulsively
  2. Define and practise assertive empathy and listening
  3. Learn to work with your emotions so that you can communicate with confidence  and act wisely across situations

By developing Emotional Intelligence you can build the capacity to develop self-awareness, self-discipline and empathy in ways that have a positive impact on your relationships with others.
