Emotional intelligence

Emotional intelligence, also called EQ, is the ability to be aware of and to manage emotions and relationships. It’s a pivotal factor in personal and professional success. IQ will get you in the door, but it is your EQ, your ability to connect with others and manage the emotions of yourself and others, that will determine how successful you are in life. Our EQ course will be held on April 21 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

We have all worked with and listened to brilliant people. Some of them were great and… well, some were not so great. The mean and the meek and all those in between can teach us more than they realize. When we look at the truly extraordinary people who inspire and make a difference you will see that they do this by connecting with people at a personal and emotional level. What differentiated them was not their IQ but their EQ – their emotional intelligence. This one-day workshop will help you develop your emotional intelligence.

Workshop participants will go over the meaning of emotional intelligence, recognize how emotional health and physical health are related and study techniques to understand, use, and appreciate EQ in the workplace. The class will also cover how to handle different emotions, understand the difference between optimism and pessimism, and validate emotions in others.
