Emotional Intelligence at Work

What is Emotional Intelligence?

Aristotle did a fine job of defining Emotional Intelligence a very long time ago when he said:

“Anyone can become angry – that is easy. But to be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose, and in the right way – this is not easy.”

In today’s high pressure, fast changing work environments, understanding and being able to keep your own emotions working in your favour can be tough enough, let alone managing the emotional state of those around you.

Emotionally Intelligent people have developed their ability to do just that – helping them to influence, lead and coach themselves and their peers, reports and customers to better, more sustainable outcomes.

Emotional Intelligence Training

This 1-day in-house course enables delegates to better understand and manage their emotions and those of others to achieve greater balance, empathy and influence in the workplace.

The Emotional Intelligence training provides an intensive introduction to Emotional Intelligence and combines individual behavioural feedback – a great attention-grabber in motivating personal development – with interactive exercises and discussion to ensure each participant can interpret their feedback against their own practical working context.
