Well-developed Emotional Intelligence (EI) is increasingly seen as a critical leadership trait. The ability to make sound decisions, innovate, think critically, control stress, motivate, inspire, and understand others, are all dependant on the EI of leaders. EI is also much more important in the today’s workplace due to uncertainty and constant change which can exacerbate anxiety and insecurity in employees, leading to distraction, stress, and disengagement. High EI in leaders can ameliorate these negative impacts and set up employees for a positive and forward focused outlook.
This one-day masterclass will provide participants with their own EI 360 assessment as a way of benchmarking their current level of EI skills and areas for development. The workshop will focus on; understanding the 12 EI sub-scales, understanding how our thinking and emotion impact our performance, and several tools and concepts that participants can take away and apply instantly.
