About the course

Effective leaders take all forms and shapes. But characteristic of all of them is a high degree of what psychologists call emotional intelligence, the ability to use your emotions, feelings, moods - and those of others - as a source of information to help you navigate through life more effectively. There is now an abundance of research indicating that emotional intelligence is more important than technical skills, or traditional cognitive skills, in shaping our leadership effectiveness. Furthermore, there is mounting evidence that an organization's success is directly related to the emotional intelligence level of its leaders. As the business environment continues to change, emotional intelligence skills will become increasingly important in determining who succeeds and who fails. This presentation will help participants develop the emotional intelligence competencies required by a position of leadership. Participants will assess, develop, and apply their own emotional intelligence and will learn how to cultivate emotional intelligence in their organization.
