Honing your emotional intelligence

NOTE: This class is not a pre-requisite to Emotional Intelligence in Leadership. This is a similar version of that course for support staff and faculty who are not currently in a leadership role. You should not take both.

Isn't it interesting how some people have the seemingly natural talent for handling themselves and/or others with ease? It is an amazing feat considering our high stress, multi-tasking, spread-too-thin world today. Most likely, these individuals have mastered the principles found within Emotional Intelligence. The essence of Emotional Intelligence is our ability to identify and manage our own emotions and our ability to identify emotions in others and manage interpersonal relationships.

We will learn:

  • Why emotional intelligence is an essential competency in today’s workworld
  • how to fully engage the four fundamental areas of EQ:
    • self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and relationship management
  • how to increase your EQ
  • why emotional intelligence has a direct impact on job satisfaction and performance excellence.
