EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE: Essential Strategies for Your Career and Corporate Success

“There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving…and that’s your own self.” Aldous Huxley


Why do brilliant people so often fail in managing others? It is certainly not because they lack intelligence or technical skills. What they often lack however is enough Emotional Intelligence (EI) to manage their own emotions and others’ – especially when they are under pressure! (which in today’s fast-paced world is “business as usual” every day, correct?).

Emotional Intelligence is now accepted to be the greatest differentiator between being a good manager or leader and being a great one. Additionally, EI is essential for all the relationships we have – whether with colleagues, friends or family.

Put simply, one key learning outcome of this two-day, personally transformative workshop is for attendees to realise that their Emotional Intelligence abilities – such as self-confidence, humility, empathy, managing feelings, etc., – are far more crucial than their Intelligence (IQ) when it comes to leading people, achieving company and career success and, most importantly, living a fulfilling life. Moreover, participants will leave the training with practical tools to create an action plan to develop their EI for – unlike IQ – EI can thankfully be increased.
