NWIRC and Clarion SBDC are pleased to offer Emotional Intelligence 2.0.
All managers can relate horror stories about employees, team members or even bosses who were intelligent, technically capable, and able to perform the duties their job demanded…but wreaked havoc on their teams because their social skills or self-management capability was lacking. When it comes to individual and team success, IQ is not enough; in fact, the skill set known as Emotional Intelligence (EQ) has consistently proven to be a better indicator of individual and team workplace success. Cultivating and using the five components of EQ can have a profound positive effect on you individually as well as the people you work with.
The role of emotions in our daily lives is not often discussed; however, how we handle our feelings can have a profound impact on our success and happiness in life. Leaders who understand, practice and cultivate EQ show healthier brain activity, can protect themselves from toxic stress and strengthen effective decision-making capabilities.
Emotional intelligence means cultivating:
- Self-Awareness – Ability to perceive, evaluate and control emotions
- Self-Regulation – Mindfulness to cope with stress and life’s ups & downs
- Social Awareness – Developing better relationships with co-workers
- Empathy – Understanding the dynamics of power and how it influences behaviors
- Motivation – Seeking experiences leading to internal rewards
Learn more about the important role of emotional intelligence in our lives and learn to practice this critical skill.
Objectives: Upon completion of this program, participants will be able to:
- Identify the 5 main factors of emotional intelligence and how those factors can play into personal and professional success
- Implement strategies for seamlessly incorporating emotional intelligence into their personal and professional lives
- Utilize practical exercises that show EQ in action
