Emotional Intelligence

Duration: 1 day

Emotional intelligence (EI) is increasingly being regarded as a major key to personal success. IQ measures our ability to problem solve and is pretty difficult if not impossible to change. Our emotional intelligence is our ability to problem solve about emotions and like any other skill can be developed and honed.  

Some of the most successful people in life today are those who are regarded as having a high level of emotional intelligence whatever their level of IQ.  Being able to manage themselves and others successfully is often a crucial factor in their success. With a growing emphasis on ‘soft skills’, leaders and managers need to be able to sensitively handle other people, both within and outside the organisation.

Emotions are important in work life. They drive motivation and commitment; they are an inherent part of what we do whatever our job role. Effective individuals are proficient at recognising, using, understanding, and managing emotions in themselves and others.

This one day course will help participants improve their understanding and skill in these areas.

Action Plans

After completing this course, you have an opportunity to complete a psychometric to understand more about emotional motional drivers and derailers. If you would like to do this, you will be invited to complete a psychometric questionnaire called Lumina Emotion.

It can be done online and takes between 30-60 minutes. The results are compiled into a report which one of our trained and accredited coaches will go through with the participant individually to work up an action plan to leverage their EI strengths and develop strength where needed.

This can be very powerful in building EI into your people and your organisation.
