Featuring the EQ-i 2.0
Emotional Intelligence has recently become a very popular and powerful concept in leadership training, but the current global crisis is testing us all emotionally and socially. Leaders now definitely need to exhibit characteristics such as empathy, confidence, social responsibility, assertiveness and unprecedented optimism. All of these are aspects of emotional intelligence. This interactive workshop reviews research demonstrating the critical connection between emotional intelligence and high performance. After identifying the key components of emotional intelligence, participants will discover their own strengths through feedback from a self-report assessment instrument, the EQ-i 2.0. Because crucial leadership skills can be developed and enhanced over time, individuals will learn practical tips and best practices for significantly increasing their leadership impact.
