Developing your Emotional Intelligence


­The rules of success are changing. Success used to be measured by what we knew, or how smart we were. But today it’s how we handle ourselves and our relationships. Successful leaders combine strong interpersonal skills with technical knowledge to improve their potential and performance. These are the ideas of Daniel Goleman, Harvard researcher and author of the best-selling book, Emotional Intelligence, published in the late 90’s. Contrasted with the traditional Intelligence Quotient (IQ) emotional intelligence is largely learned and continues to develop as we go through life, learning from our experiences.

The core competencies of EI provide the foundation to further develop your intra/interpersonal skills. In this course, you learn to apply EI to motivate and engage your teams, foster cooperative working relationships, and improve your overall effectiveness.
