Understanding Emotional Intelligence


With all of the deadlines, projects, and tasks that you have to do every day at work, it's hard to find time to set personal development goals that positively impact your work performance and help you to grow professionally. But how will you advance in your career if you don't make time for personal development? Without a concrete plan in place, you are at risk of stagnating and experiencing burnout. This webinar explores emotional intelligence - the key skills, abilities, and competencies that help you to be effective in your life and career and to solve problems in your emotional life. You will examine the two components of Emotional Intelligence - Personal Competence and Social Competence. You will also learn and practice several essential skills and principles for enhancing emotional intelligence, sharpening key competencies for work success, and developing a plan that you can execute immediately.

Why should you attend: Without a concrete plan for personal and professional development, you are at risk of stagnating and experiencing burnout, which contributes to health problems, high employee turnover, absenteeism, low productivity, and lack of job satisfaction. Having a plan to increase your emotional intelligence will help you to avoid the negative impact of out of control emotions and a poor sense of self worth and capabilities. Not understanding how to increase and leverage your emotional IQ also results in poor communication, conflict, and lack of leadership.
