Apply emotional intelligence to lead more effectively.

Managers today typically have high IQs, extensive education, years of experience, and deep knowledge in their fields. As valuable as these skills and abilities are, however, none help predict success as a leader.

Research shows that emotional intelligence (EQ), totally unrelated to IQ, is actually the single biggest predictor of performance in the workplace - it accounts for 58% of performance in all types of jobs. It's also considered the strongest driver of leadership and personal excellence.

That's good news, because while IQ is basically fixed at birth, a high EQ can be actively developed. This interactive high impact course is your first step in that direction, by developing your understanding of emotional intelligence and how to harness it to improve organisational performance.
