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.
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.
A firm understanding of emotional intelligence and development of the skills associated with it
allow individuals to better recognize and manage their emotions. This leads to better
communication, reduced stress, more effective conflict resolution and more rewarding and
satisfying inter‐personal relationships.
This one‐day course is focused on raising your EQ by raising awareness and developing skills
that will give you the EQ edge.
