Time: 9:00am to 5:00pm
If emotional intelligence (EQ) sounds like an oxymoron to you, that’s understandable. We tend to think of our emotions and our intelligence as two separate things. But put them together as emotional intelligence, and it’s essentially a different way to be smart because it’s “the capacity to be aware of, control, and express one's emotions, and to handle interpersonal relationships judiciously and empathetically” according to the dictionary definition. The term was made popular by psychologist Daniel Goleman in his book Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ, in which he redefines what it is to be smart. In the book, Goleman lays out five components of emotional intelligence.

A common question that is often asked about Emotional Intelligence is …. “Can EQ be learned?”   We have all experienced or have met people that seem to be naturally gifted at controlling or recognizing their emotions.  These individuals seem to understand how to put others in a comfortable place, or get them engaged, or even to give another person whatever it is that they need at that time.

The good news is that while some people have EQ as a natural talent, for those that don’t, EQ skills can be learned.  There has been some clear and focused research that supports this fact. People can learn how to interact more effectively at work and increase their emotional intelligence. To make this happen, an individual needs to be personally motivated to do this.  Individuals need to first have a handle of where they are starting from (assessment) and then understand which of the five components of EQ need the greatest attention.

At the end of the training, participants will be able to master the 5 core skills of high EQ people :

When we’re self-aware, we know our strengths and weaknesses, as well as how we react to situations and people. 

Because they are self-aware, emotionally intelligent people can regulate their emotions and keep them in check as necessary. 

People with high emotional intelligence tend to be highly motivated as well, which makes them more resilient and optimistic. 

People with empathy and compassion are simply better at connecting with other people. 

5.Social Skills
The social skills of emotionally intelligent people show they genuinely care for and respect others and they get along well with them.
