“When I compared star performers with average ones in senior leadership positions, nearly 90% of the difference in their profiles was attributable to emotional intelligence factors rather than cognitive abilities.” Daniel Goleman
Emotional Intelligence is the single most important indicator in producing people who are able to work effectively in organizations at the highest levels. Longer term sustainability, requires that people go beyond I.Q. and develop their full E.Q.
This course is designed to help delegates develop self-awareness, effective and polished interpersonal skills, help understand and manage their emotions, and lastly create passion for their work, energy and self motivation. In fact it is not the hardest working or most intelligent people who succeed, but people who have high levels of emotional intelligence and who are able to gain the cooperation of their colleagues and lead and motivate teams of people. Leaders who have a high level of emotional intelligence are able to take their leadership from a mediocre level to an outstanding level. If you want to take your leadership to a new level, emotional intelligence competence is critical to your progress.
The course looks at our work-life balance, the kind of lifestyle choices that we make, our attitude towards working life and asks questions about the impact that our lifestyle choices are having on our motivation, and our job engagement. Emotional intelligence will help leaders avoid the growing symptoms of burn out, strokes, and heart attacks. We help delegates develop a range of tools and techniques for building their emotional intelligence.
