Emotional Intelligence

Could you identify your strengths, weaknesses, capabilities and drivers and even easier to see how you are perceived by others. Removed from the situation and its associated emotions, it is easier to empathise with others and to form a more rational, considered response. Our Emotional Intelligence 1 day event provides you with the skills and techniques required to take a step back and achieve a more objective, emotionally intelligent viewpoint.

What is it?

Rapidly gaining momentum as being the most desirable quality in today’s leaders, Emotional Intelligence is the awareness of your own and others’ emotions, the ability to regulate these emotions and the skills to manage relationships in order to achieve the desired result. Whilst some people do show a pre-disposition for Emotional Intelligence, it is a skill that can be learnt.
