Emotional Intelligence Workshop

Objective /Benefits


Emotional Intelligence has made a huge splash in the professional world. Literature covering all fields is touting the importance of this skill. Bursting into a world where academic achievement and the Intelligence Quotient ruled all, Emotional Intelligence has paved the way for a revolutionising of the hiring and training practices in major corporations and organizations. 

A study conducted by a Fortune 400 company in 2006 showed that emotionally intelligent individuals received superior ratings from peers and supervisors in terms of interpersonal facilitation and stress tolerance and overall job performance. There is a reason that 34% of hiring managers are giving more importance to Emotional Intelligence when hiring and promoting employees post-recession: that it relates positively to job performance. 

Being able to manage emotions is a powerful tool in relation-building, and employees with such ability are an asset to an organization. While most individuals possess a certain level of Emotional Intelligence, there is a need to identify barriers to its use. Individuals with high Emotional Intelligence are easier to manage and supervise because they are skilled in motivating themselves, managing stress and resolving conflicts with. Not only does this allow managers and supervisors to distribute their resources better, it makes for a more satisfied and productive workforce. It also results in increased effectiveness of teams. 

These skills can be learned, given the right training and guidance. This program breaks down Emotional Intelligence such that participants understand its components thoroughly, and are able to apply the detailed principles both to themselves and the people around them. 

Investing in the Emotional Intelligence of your staff will bring returns that will impact your bottom-line both directly and indirectly.
