Emotional Intelligence: The New Science of Success

Emotional Intelligence is the capacity to recognize and effectively manage emotions in ourselves and with others. Learn to use emotional intelligence in the workplace to increase your ability to make effective decisions, build relationships, deal with stress and cope with change.

Our ability to deal effectively with our emotions in the work place is critical to our success as employees and coworkers. Emotional intelligence is becoming a critical skill set as the pace of the world increases and our environment makes more and more demands on our cognitive, emotional and physical resources.

In this 'EQ' training workshop, we explore the topic of Emotional Intelligence and how to develop our own EQ to increase our success with our careers and relationships both inside and outside of work. Through various exercises and group discussion, this workshop will provide you with the opportunity to identify your own challenges in maintaining positive environments and collaborative relationships. You will explore techniques to manage your emotions with confidence and positive results.
