The most accurate predictor of success at work isn't IQ, it's emotional intelligence, or EQ—the capacity to understand one's self and others and apply that understanding to accomplish important goals. In this workshop, participants will learn the components of emotional intelligence and how to: operate with greater self-discipline, resourcefulness and motivation; engage and inspire others more effectively to get desired results; lead from a place of enhanced self-awareness, flexibility and confidence; manage difficult people and emotionally charged situations with enhanced dexterity. Participants will leave with a personalized action plan for increasing their EQ and how to leverage it to gain influence.
This is part of the Leadership & Management and Supervisory Skills Certificate Programs, but you do not need to enroll in the program to take this workshop.
