Emotional Intelligence for Work and Life

"Many people with IQs of 160 work for people with IQs of 100, if the former have poor interpersonal intelligence and the latter have a high one. And in the day to day world no intelligence is more important than the interpersonal. If you don't have it, you'll make poor choices about who to marry, what job to take, and so on."
Gardner, Howard & Hatch, Thomas

There is a rapidly growing recognition in organisations and at the personal level that Emotional Intelligence improves effectiveness, raises happiness and wellbeing, and can transfer through to greater customer satisfaction and economic success. Work roles are increasingly stressful and the ability to effectively handle  challenges effectively between staff, and in front-line situations is a prime requirement. This programme is designed to provide all delegates with a portfolio of skills and knowledge which will help them overcome organisational and personal challenges in a positive and constructive manner.

What is it about?
Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is a growing subject which involves the ability to monitor the feelings and emotions of yourself and others and to use this to guide thinking and actions. It also includes aspects of managing stress and developing perspectives on life to make us happier. Technical skills and expertise are valuable but are insufficient on their own to enable people to work effectively and to create a productive, positive work environment that is transmitted to suppliers and customers.
