Working from home requires a higher level of emotional intelligence. Understanding self, others, and social interaction are more important than ever. Being aware of your emotions and understanding others (especially when there is no face-to-face interaction) can be extremely beneficial, not only to individuals but to teams, relationships, and trust. This program offers immediate skill improvement and higher emotional intelligence.

Course Overview

This course focuses on the development and application of emotional intelligence rather than theory. Participants practice the skills they learn which are the core of achieving personal awareness, connecting with others, managing stress, effectively dealing with others, becoming more flexible to change, and how to regulate personal emotions. Participants first gain a clear understanding of what emotional intelligence is, then how to improve their self-awareness, awareness of others, then how to build an action plan to improve their own emotional intelligence. This is a very application-based course that utilizes group activities so participants are already building this skill before they leave the class.

This course shows you how to tap into your emotions and use them to make your life better. Being in touch with your feelings allows you to manage stress levels and communicate effectively with other people, two skills that enhance your life both personally and professionally. Studies have shown that a high emotional quotient correlates with greater career success, stronger leadership potential, better health, greater relationship satisfaction, better social skills, and higher productivity.

How this course is different – The emphasis of this course is to show participants how to build this skill using a step-by-step plan he or she develops, shares and gets feedback on before leaving class. The result is more immediate implementation and behavior modification, as well as lasting results.

Participants learn:

  • Why emotional intelligence is such an important skill in today’s workplace

  • How important self-awareness is

  • How to stay flexible (even in difficult situations)

  • How to relate better to others

  • How to improve both personal and social skills

  • How to improve self-control

  • How to improve personal motivation and motivate others

This is a team activity-based course where participants practice what they learn before they leave so they are prepared to utilize the skills they learn immediately, with success.
