About the course
The focus of this professional development program on Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is to learn to identify, use, understand, and manage emotions in an effective and positive way. A higher EQ helps individuals to communicate better, reduce their anxiety and stress, defuse conflicts, improve relationships, empathize with others, and effectively overcome life’s challenges. Shifting to a virtual world requires more attunement, connection, utilization of different tools and skills, where picking up on queues is a necessity. This program will enable you to do just that. This is a foundation course for the Roberto C. Goizueta Leadership Certificate and applies to the Certificate of Excellence in Business.
