Course Description:

Emotional intelligence (EQ) is one of the most important skills we possess. Employees who develop their EQ skills can more effectively communicate, handle stress well, make good decisions, handle conflict productively, work in teams, respond flexibly to change, and provide top performance. Participants in this highly engaging, interactive workshop will see examples of the 4 Core EQ skills in action: Self- Awareness, Self-Management, Social Awareness, and Relationship Management. They will take a self-assessment to identify their EQ strengths and areas for improvement, and will create their own action plan with goals and recommended strategies to develop their EQ skills.
