Emotional Intelligence

Course Overview

One of the most important attributes of any inspiring manager or leader is their ability to display emotional intelligence. The ability to understand, relate and manage their effect on others is critical to effective leadership and with the rise of hybrid working structures, managers and leaders now need to be able to demonstrate emotional intelligence both in-person and digitally.

It is also ideal for those who require the skills to be emotionally intelligent within a remote setting.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is Emotional Intelligence Training?

    Emotional intelligence training are courses, or a programme, that are designed to improve and develop existing emotional skills and teach new practical skills and knowledge to help individuals become more emotionally aware. Emotional intelligence training programmes can have a significant positive impact on workplaces by improving the awareness of leadership personnel towards employees’ emotions. Our emotional intelligence courses are designed for anyone who wants to fully understand what is meant by emotional intelligence, and for anyone who wants to learn how to be more emotionally intelligent.

  • What Are the Reasons for Emotional Intelligence Training?

    Emotional intelligence (also known as EQ and EI) has always been an important aspect of the managerial skillset that maintains, or promotes, a happy and productive workforce. Some of the benefits of being more emotionally intelligent include:

    • Helps communicate better and work with people from all kinds of backgrounds
    • Develops a heightened sense of self-awareness which leads to self-improvement
    • Helps to understand colleagues’ (and customers’) motivations
    • Helps leaders reach their full potential

    Teams want to work for a manager who cares not only about their progression, but also about them as people, and by becoming more emotionally intelligent is certainly a way to achieve this. In turn, teams become more motivated, and therefore more productive.

  • Can Emotional Intelligence be Taught?

    Whilst every individual is different and, as such, will have a different level of emotional intelligence, the good news is that it is possible to learn the skills involved in becoming more emotionally intelligent. Our emotional intelligence training is specially designed to develop the areas that contribute to an increase in emotional intelligence. Some of the more important skills that will be covered in the training include self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skills. Participants finish the course having greatly increased their capability to be more emotionally intelligent.

  • Why is Emotional Intelligence Training Important?

    Workplaces can be stressful environments at times, and from an emotional perspective, each employee will handle these pressures differently. Many people believe that EQ or EI can be as important as IQ when progressing to higher roles in an organisation. It is certainly true that leaders with higher levels of emotional intelligence tend to have the attributes to keep their employees happy, and happier employees tend to be more productive. By developing your own, or your management teams’ EI, you will be improving your workplace culture by making it a better and more productive place to work.

  • Who Needs Emotional Intelligence Training?

    Emotional intelligence training is valuable to everyone, regardless of their position, but it can be particularly important for those in leadership or management positions, as well as those who have taken up unofficial leadership roles or are future leaders within an organisation.
