Introduction & Background:

Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is the ability to observe, assess, appreciate and manage emotions and behaviours - for you and with others. The result can be seen in improved relationships, stronger team commitments and more effective decision-making. The good news is EQ is a skill that you can learn, develop and apply to excel at work and at home.


In preparation for this course, you will be asked to complete an online EQ appraisal and read Emotional Intelligence 2.0 by Travis Bradberry & Jean Greaves (provided)

"In the fields I have studied, emotional intelligence is more powerful than IQ in determining who emerges as a leader. IQ is a threshold competence - you need it but it doesn't make you a star, EQ can!" - Warren Bennis, University of Southern California Professor and author of 18 books.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Learn the four skills that make-up EQ: Self-awareness, self-management, social awareness and relationship management
  • Assess your EQ using the Emotional Intelligence Appraisal Tool
  • Identify strengths and gaps in your EQ
  • Learn strategies to help you increase your EQ
