Course detail: LDRS1045 - Leadership Live One-Day Workshop: Leading with Emotional Intelligence
Emotional Intelligence, or EQ, is an array of emotional and social competencies that determine how we relate to ourselves and others and how we deal with the demands and pressures of our work and family lives. Unlike IQ, which is "hard wired" and predominantly hereditary, EQ can be learned, developed, and enhanced. All of us are deficient in some domain of EQ, but we can work to improve. Organizational leaders must be sensitive to EQ to communicate effectively with everyone in their organizations.
Participants will learn how to:Enhance self-awareness and other-awarenessDemonstrate elite listening skillsUtilize a self-assessment tool for diagnosing strengths and vulnerabilities
