Emotional Intelligence for Leaders
Emotional Intelligence and Self-Awareness
For a leader, it isn’t enough to be smart; what’s required today is a superior level of emotional intelligence manifested in self-awareness. Control of emotions in the workplace—what can best be termed as people smart. Great leaders are characterized by a mastery of their emotional state and a higher level of emotional control.
Effective leaders supplement their IQ with EQ
We’ll analyze your current work environment and identify the barriers prohibiting positive behaviors. An Emotional Intelligence assessment before the workshop begins enables taking an honest look at yourself, gauging your predisposition to working on areas needing improvement, and tailoring the program to build your EQ muscles. Why is this essential? Research reveals that IQ and training account for as little of 20% of the difference between exceptional and ordinary performers.
You’ll gain an understanding of the neuroscience behind EQ, and you’ll learn that your Emotional Quotient is rooted in four areas: Self Awareness, Self Management, Social Awareness and Motivation, and Relationship Management. Exercises and practice are designed to develop a personal action plan that will boost your EQ, and accomplish this with the support of your peers in a healthier, happier and more productive workplace.
